This month the PTO encourages you to participate in Thanks-Give-ing (formerly Pick-A -Feather) as we help our school families in need. Your donation will be used to help purchase a Thanksgiving grocery gift card given to our very appreciative families. Donate online at the PTO website, link below, or send a check in made out to OPES PTO. Any amount is appreciated. Our PTO is a 501c3 so your donation is tax deductible...online donations immediately receive an email receipt. Thank you!


Sport Stacking

Our students are really excited about the Sport Stacking unit we are currently doing in PE. Sport Stacking is an exciting sport where students stack and unstack 12-specially designed cups (Speed Stacks). Sport Stacking uses both sides of the body and brain developing important athletic and academic skills. See THIS FLYER for more details about helping your child purchase his own cups.
