Unity Day

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Wednesday October 23rd is Unity Day! We are asking everyone to wear ORANGE on 10/23/19! By wearing orange we are showing our support for people that have been bullied and for Bullying Prevention. Bullying is not welcome at OPES and our Orange will help us spread this message!


In addition to wearing orange, we will also have Mix It Up Lunch! During this event, students will sit at tables with students they do not normally have a chance to sit with!


We’re hoping this will be a fun and educational activity as we work towards teaching our kids how to accept and appreciate others!

Attendance Lines

See this link with information about the new attendance lines that have been drawn in Fort Mill Schools to accommodate increasing growth and the addition of two new schools next year.

Spirit Night with the Checkers
