Art Contest

ART CONTEST!! ART CONTEST!! COME ONE, COME ALL!!

We are trying something new for the artwork we use on our folders and directories!  Every student in the school gets a folder and every family that signs up to be a part of the PTA gets a directory.  Your child could create the cover art!  We need to act fast, as our print deadline is approaching.  If your child is looking for something to do over this week, here is what they need to know to create a submission for the contest:

1. Creations must be done on 8 1/2 x 11 white paper in portrait orientation.

2. Create your submission based on next year’s theme of ‘Growing Together … Soaring Together’, inspired by the Wright Brothers who built on their knowledge of the bicycle to create the world’s first airplane.

3. Please include only pictures, no text/writing.

4. Scan and email submissions to Jessica Hwang at RecordSecy@OradellPTA.org by THURSDAY JULY 9.

President’s Message

Staying strong and moving forward together!

We are looking towards 2020-2021!

It’s an odd time to run a PTA when there is no school.  We’ve canceled a lot, reallocated funds and we’re doing what we can to build momentum for next year while taking a few moments to wrap this year up in a thoughtful way.

📘 Memory Books.  The PTA is funding one for every family.  A free ad for every family too.  An extra for 6th graders. We are sure you have so much to add to this unique time capsule.  More to follow in the posts below as we capture your thoughts and memories.

📙 Our committees will need new leadership.  Please review the list below and let us know if you would like to chair a committee next year.

🐾 Our classrooms will need school supplies, class parents, PTA memberships and directory sign-ups.  All of those are coming your way on this site before the end of May.

⏱️ Our last PTA meeting via video will be June 2nd.  We will vote in our new leadership and find a way to celebrate some of our children as we typically do

As always, please reach out to our executive team with any questions.

Enjoy the spring.
