Together We Grow 2022!

10/29/2022 10:22 am

OP’s Together We Grow Annual Fundraiser has officially begun!

We partied at the Fall Festival to start us off and now it’s time to get to work! Let’s show our dedication to keeping OP the place to be!

This year our goal is to raise $45,000 to help make our school the best we can! We will continue to update our media center’s collection, purchase classroom supplies, fund field trips and support our teachers, their training, our garden program and so much more!

The funds that we raise during this campaign are essential to a successful year. 

Students have the opportunity to fundraise through the website and win raffle prizes! If you are registered on the site and updated your child’s teacher for this school year, your child already has a fundraising page that you can customize, and share.

If you need to find your student’s page or aren’t registered on the site, you can do that here:
