Health & Fitness Challenge

Orchard Park Families, we are excited to announce that OPES and the PTO are partnering with Health Coach, Kristi Whitaker, to bring you a fun family health and fitness Challenge just in time for the new year! Get healthier and more fit as a family and raise money* for our school! Double Time™ is a 30-day program with workouts (18-32 mins in length) that feel more like play and less like work! Designed with families in mind, it’s a fun way for you and a partner (like your spouse or child) to exercise and eat yummy, healthy food as a team—all while sharing some one-on-one time! Stay motivated as you log workouts, try family-friendly healthy recipes, and check in with other Eagle families in a private app community throughout the Challenge. You’ll end the 30 days more energized and fit, while building family bonds along the way!

Speed Stacking

Next Wednesday we would like to close out sales for speed stacking cups. If you are planning to buy cups or mats/timers, we really need you to bring your money in by next Wednesday!

STEAM Resource Drive

We are collecting recycled, gently used, and new items for our upcoming STEAM/Literacy Night in January. Students earn an incentive for each day they bring in items. Click the link HERE for more information on requested items and incentives for each day during the week of December 4th-8th.

Pick a Feather

This donation-based program provides families with a Thanksgiving grocery store gift card. All donations are collected and divided equally (via gift cards) among the families. We need your help! Donations can be made on our website. Simply log-in and click the "donate here" under the Turkey on the PTO Home Page. Or, send in cash or check made out to OPES PTO and put "Pick Feather" in the memo. Deadline for donations: November 15th.

Holiday Angel Tree

We also support OPES families by providing Christmas gifts for children via our Angel Tree. More details to come, but please note that this year we will utilize Sign-Up Genius exclusively for our Angel Tree. We hope this is a more effective, convenient way for donors to participate. Also, gifts will NOT be wrapped this year. If you would like to be a volunteer to help with our Holiday Angel Tree, please contact opespto@gmail.com and we will be happy to provide more info and details.
