President’s Message

Celebrate Reading and our Community!

Winter brings us book clubs, book fairs, author visits and Casino Night!

As we move into February and March you can’t help but be bombarded by the focus on reading at OPS…and the PTA is right there in the thick of it.  To keep up with all the activity please continue to ✔️ email blasts on Monday mornings.

📘 FEBRUARY: encourage your child to use the President’s Day holiday break to complete their 6 hours of reading for the Six Flags Read to Succeed program.  Reading logs are now completed online.  More details are available below.  The deadline for submissions is March 1st.

📙 MARCH: brings author visits during ‘Read Across America Week’.  And then the Book Fair team will round things out with their programs that run from the 17th to the 19th

🌟🌟BREAKING NEWS!  March also brings our first ever CASINO NIGHT! Check out the post below, talk to a few friends and make a night of it!🌟🌟

🔬 For those of you with a more science-driven skill set, we haven’t forgotten about you.  During March the PTA kicks off a series of workshops to help you prep for our first Invention Convention which will be held in April.  Sign-ups and more details about this fun new program will be available in the coming weeks.

🎨 And of course, for those of you with budding artists in your homes, the PTA will run an art contest for the cover of this year’s memory book.

⏱️ Our next PTA meeting will be on March 24th at 7:30 in the OPS Auditorium.  We will hear the 2020-2021 leadership slate as proposed by our nominating committee.  We will also open sign-ups for committee chair spots that turn over for 2020-2021.  Lots to do…

If you are looking for information about other 2019-2020 events please see our calendar as all anticipated events have been posted.

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

Happy New Year!
