President’s Message

Snow has fallen making everything feel a little more festive this December!

I’d like to take a moment and wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. May you enjoy your time with your family and friends and come back in January rested and refreshed. The PTA has some great things planned for the new year including some wonderful author visits for Read Across America, a fun assembly in February, new lunchtime activities for the cold (and snowy) winter months, and much more.

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year! See you in 2018!

Jennifer Koth
PTA President

We’re here to help…

The Oradell PTA’s special needs committee is working with the Oradell SEPAC…

to help families with parenting resources about learning disabilities, special services, and other important issues. Oradell SEPAC has launched a wonderful new website, which focuses on how to access extra help for students at OPS, including FAQs and various parent resources.

ORADELL SEPAC WEBSITE

In addition, the Oradell PTA maintains a special needs committee that is available to help address concerns both overlapping with SEPAC as well as what might be outside their focus areas: (ex: academic struggles, physical challenges, social and emotional needs, as well as allergies, gifted & talented options, etc…)

In general, we’re here to help.

To contact the PTA’s Special Needs Committee please email them directly at: specialneeds@oradellpta.org.
