Holiday Boutique

We are keeping the tradition alive!  This year instead of the MPR room, students can shop from home here (password is FsVhs88) until this Friday.  Purchases will be delivered to OPS to save on shipping fees. Families will be contacted about distribution.


Spirit Wear Holiday FLASH SALE

Three days only, OPS Spirit Wear is available here until Wednesday, 12/2.  Last chance to get Spirit Wear in 2020, all orders will be delivered in December.  Free shipping on orders over $75!


Boonli 

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. Order for the week, the two week remote learning period, or the month if you wish.

Visit Boonli, our lunch ordering platform to place your order.  Information on how to set up a Boonli account can be found on the PTA website, under the Community News tab.

Please email schoollunch@oradellpta.org with any questions.


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.

A huge thank you to Michelle del Corral for setting up and organizing this program.


Giving Thanks Assembly

Thank you to our OPS administrators and teachers who were great sports, even while covered in green slime!  We had so much fun with this.  Thank you to the OPS community for donating food, which made all of this possible!

If you missed it (or you want to watch the fun again!), you can check out the video here.

      


Thank You Amazon!

Thank you to Christine Morgner, who secured a donation of $2,500 for the PTA on behalf of Amazon!

This is part of Amazon’s end-of-year efforts to support local, nonprofit organizations as we continue to navigate the difficulties of the COVID-19 pandemic. As an Amazon employee, Christine Morgner was given the opportunity to recommend us for funding.  We are grateful she took time out of her busy schedule to do so!

We will work hard to put these funds to good use, making sure they are used to benefit the students of OPS.  Thank you Christine!


We hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you,

Kelly Castro
