"Freezin' for a Reason!"

Help us raise money and support the Special Olympics through the Polar Plunge. Money can be donated to one of the administrators and the one who collects the most money will make the jump in the cold water on February 9 at Baxter YMCA.

Black History Month

Throughout the month of February, OPES we will focus on the contributions of African Americans for Black History Month. Each classroom has chosen an African American Inventor to research. As a class they will decorate the outside of their classroom door with their chosen inventor.

Any student that registers online will receive a free glow in the dark wristband just for signing up! Thank you for your support of our students, our school, and the American Heart Association.
