President’s Message

O_PTA_Logo1[1]

The Oradell PTA is pleased to welcome returning families back to school, and extend a special greeting to kindergarten parents and families new to our community!  The PTA is comprised of nearly 1,000 members, both parents and teachers, working to enhance the educational experience of our children.

The PTA has been very busy this summer planning programs and activities that will make this a fabulous year for our children.  It is because of the strong volunteer efforts of our parents and the dedication of our teachers that the Oradell PTA is able to sponsor so many wonderful activities and programs.

As we begin the school year, please consider volunteering to assist one of our committees this year.  No matter what your talents and interests are, there is something for you – and we can use your help!  With 41 active committees, there’s always a chance to participate and make a contribution to your child’s experience at OPS.  Just click the “volunteer” tab above and select programs or events which fit with your schedule and interests.

Please join us at our next PTA meeting on Tuesday, November 18th at 7:30 p.m. in the OPS auditorium.  If you have any questions or ideas you would like to share, please feel free to contact me at jenlarson141@gmail.com.
