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.

Thank you Officer Mike for being our SRO. We are thankful you are helping keep our school community safe!

Thank you to our PTO for helping fund the Eagle Arcade. It's a wonderful incentive for our students that helps recognize students for making great choices at school.
