As we begin 2015, please consider volunteering to assist one of our committees.  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.  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 programs and activities.

Please join us at our next PTA meeting on Tuesday, February 3rd 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.

Special Needs Committee

Please contact the Special Needs Committee for questions regarding ANY special needs you may have (ex: allergies, academic struggles, physical challenges, social and emotional needs, the needs of the gifted & talented, etc…).  Additionally, this would be the place for anyone who feels that they can offer their own experience and wants to be on our MENTOR list to say, “it’s okay to contact me if someone has a question about…. ”  We will be a liaison between the person with the question and the right resource for getting their questions answered.
