We are so excited to announce the arrival of the Rutgers Science Bus!

Over the next few weeks, the Rutgers Science Bus will visit OAS and give all of our middle school students an opportunity to experience this unique, at-school field trip! This is a state-of-the-art mobile laboratory contained within a 40-foot custom-designed bus. The Rutgers Science Explorer is staffed by Rutgers scientists, who will lead our students in experiments exploring the excitement of the life, earth, and physical sciences.

We are thrilled to be able to fund this opportunity for our OAS students!

PTA Membership Info

With the help of your membership, the PTA is able to fund activities & events throughout the year for our students. Most recently we were able to purchase indoor recess kits for our Elementary Students, the Rutgers Science Bus for our Middle School students. yearbooks for 5th graders, and an Ice Skating Night for our Elementary Students!

Please consider joining today so we can continue to improve the students experience at OAS!


The OAS PTA cordially invites all OAS elementary students in grades 3-5 to Ice Skate Night at Union Sports Arena on Friday, March 4th! There is no cost to skate- it’s our treat! Just keep in mind that since this is an event for the students and the rink has a cap for skaters on the ice, we have to limit it to OAS elementary students only. Parents can enjoy watching and hang around the rink and if we have space for additional skaters to join we will announce the week of the event. (Don't worry middle schoolers will get a fun night out too- to be announced soon!!)

Please note that if you need to rent skates for your child they are $4 each and can be added to your registration and paid for ahead of time.

Ski/bike helmets and gloves are encouraged. Arrival time is 7:15 PM because it is suggested to arrive 10-15 minutes early to have time to get the skates, put them on and gear up. The ice rink is all ours from 7:30-9:00 PM.

All students who are coming to ice skate must be registered beforehand via the link below. The registration process includes all required waivers and the option to add and pay for a skate rental.

All forms are due by 3/1. Can’t wait for a fun night!
