Call for Volunteers

We are so grateful for our many volunteers!  They have provided the students with many fun opportunities, even through this unique year.  We are looking for a few more volunteers to help up put together a book club for the upper grades (4-5-6) and to help organize a Talent Show in the spring.

Please email President@OradellPTA.org if you are interested.


Science Workshops

We have a few spots left in two of our Science Workshops. These are intended for those who have not already signed up for a workshop.

Parents who register students can pick up necessary materials for their child/children prior to the workshop (further info will be sent to all registrants). In addition to the materials provided, cardboard and tape will be needed for some experiments.

Each workshop has room for 30 students. First come, first serve.

Science Workshops: Materials Pickup and Zoom Link

Order you lunches for next Tuesday – Friday by Sunday night.  Discounted lunches available for pick up from some of your favorite local vendors, including Calabrias, Goldberg Bagels, Schreibers Deli and Sopranos. If you already signed up for a Science Workshop, you should have received an email from Science Fun on 1/14.  This email contains the necessary zoom link and information for when/where to pick up your materials.

If you did not receive this email, please reach out to ScienceFun@OradellPTA.org.


OPS Student Helpers

OPS Student Helpers pairs interested RDHS students with OPS families looking for help with their child/children.  Our team has already made many successful matches.  Please reach out if you could use some help!

This help is available either virtually or in person; OPS and RDHS families should decide which works best for them.

OPS families can complete this Student Helper Request Form if interested in participating.  The team will work to pair you with your high school helper upon receipt of your form so you can get started right away.

The PTA will:

  • Pair up potential High School Helpers with an interested OPS family based on the information collected
  • Provide contact information for potential High School Helper matches to the OPS family

At that point, the PTA will step back and families can contact the matches directly to make sure there is a fit, set their schedule, coordinate services needed, etc. The PTA is simply facilitating the recruitment and pairing of interested parties.  Please note that there is an hourly fee related to this service, this fee is to be discussed and agreed upon by the two parties involved.  No portion of this fee is going to the PTA, as this is not a fundraiser.

Thank you to Michelle del Corral for setting up and organizing this program.


Hope you have a great week!

Thanks,

Kelly Castro
President, Oradell PTA
