Kids Heart Challenge

Our American Heart Association Kids Heart Challenge event will begin next week!

You can help our class win the classroom challenge! Our goal is to have 100% of our students register online and complete Finn’s Mission. Plus, the classroom in each grade level with the most students registered online will win the classroom challenge, so sign up today!

Here’s how you can help:

  • Click Here to Register.
  • Complete Finn’s Mission: Watch a 2-minute video to know Hands-Only CPR, spot the signs of a stroke and more!
  • Share with friends and family through social media, text and/or email.

The top class with the most students registered online will win the Heart Hero Torch and a Glow Party in PE! The homeroom class in each grade level with the most students registered will also win an Amazon gift card for their class!

Hollywood Winter Dance

There are only two more weeks until our Hollywood-themed Winter Dance! It will be an evening full of music, dancing, refreshments, and more! You are able to purchase tickets through the PTO website (https://orchardparkpto.membershiptoolkit.com). Due to limited space, we are asking that each student only bring one adult. Thank you for your help with this requirement. We look forward to seeing you there!

Postcards Needed

Do you know friends and family living abroad? We are looking for postcards from different places outside the US as part of our upcoming One School, One Book. You can have friends and family send postcards addressed to OPES students. Please include in the postcard how the person is connected to our school. For example, "cousin of student name." We hope to display them around the building and read some on the morning announcements. Please send postcards to Orchard Park Elementary School, 474 Third Baxter Street, Fort Mill, SC 29708 USA. All postcards should be received by March 1, 2023.
