Can you believe it?!? We’ve almost reached the end of our 1st Six Weeks of School! Our students and teachers have been hard at work… getting better every day in every way. To celebrate, this year’s first Spirit Rally is around the corner #workhard2playharder.  We’ve got a lot of fun in store for our students and hope you can make it to our rally. This year, the teachers and staff are excited to roll out our grade level clubs. These clubs will be teacher lead and held from 2:15 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. every other Friday beginning October 5th. It really all goes back to the idea of “School plus 2”. Our teachers and staff will take care of everything; you just need to make sure that you ask your kiddo(s) how their clubs are going on Club Fridays.

Did you know that October 9th is the 2018-19 Free & Reduced Application Deadline? If your children received free or reduced-priced meals last school year, they are automatically receiving the meal benefits for the first 30 days of the 2018-19 school year. On October 9th, only students whose parents submitted a 2018-19 application and qualified for the program, will receive free or reduced-priced meals. Here is how to apply online. Go to If you have more than one child attending OAP, combine their names on one application (a new application must be completed each school year). If your Pre-K child was automatically enrolled on the free and reduced program, your other children will NOT automatically be on the program (you must complete an application for all other children). An application cannot be approved until all requested fields have been completed and signed by an adult household member.
