Shoe Drive

Dear OMS Families,

Tired of all those old shoes laying around your house just taking up space?

Well, the OMS PTO will gladly take them and recycle them for you! That's right!

Bring in your old shoes (no flip flops please), and we will find them a new home.

We will also be running a contest in each grade level. The blue class that collects the most shoes by January 22nd will each win a pizza party on January 29th!

The PTO will receive fifty cents per pound of shoes collected, which goes right back to the school. So, please start collecting those shoes!

Thank you,

Christine Fitzpatrick
