President’s Message

The countdown begins…

As we approach the summer, like you, I am eagerly looking forward to family beach vacations 🏖 , long days where we have dinner at the swim club 🏊‍♂️ and the chance I will read a summer book or two 📚 .

That said, we’ve still got the month of June to get through. June is probably my family’s busiest stretch of the year! We’re all racing to attend piano concerts 🎼 , dance recitals 🎟 , graduations 🎓 and awards events 🏆 to say nothing of traveling to weekend long lacrosse tournaments…

And while school is winding down, the PTA would like to remind you that there are a few boxes left to check before we can call it a wrap. Please keep the following items on your radar: class parent applications (due 6/22), school tool boxes (before 6/30), and membership for 2018-2019 (directory print deadline is 7/25.) Some class parents will also be reaching out to collect for optional class teacher gifts!

Once summer starts consider resisting the urge to completely unplug and join us at a summertime ADULT PTA meet & greets at Cool Beans! (7:00 PM on 6/27 and 7/24)

Our community is an active one. And for me, that’s the only life worth leading. I’m sure many of you agree. From all of the executive team here at the OPS PTA, we hope your June is a fun filled one and that you get the chance to breathe once we get to July.

Kate Booth
OPS PTA President

Amazing Harlem Wizards Summer Camp Opportunity

The Wizards are coming…the wizards are coming!

And this summer they are offering a local camp at the Bethany Community Center in Washington Township (the old JCC)

There are some dates in August being offered and we all KNOW how hard it is to find camp in August!

A percentage of every camper that signs up will come back to the Oradell Public School PTA.

** Please note we are working with the Rotary on this promotion and on bringing the Wizards back to Oradell this Fall – Stay tuned for more details! **
