Green Team Volunteers Needed

9/4/2022 5:29 pm

Are you an avid recycler and interested in a rewarding experience working with OP students to collect recyclables from classrooms? This is a great way to kick off your day!


Our students love this opportunity to be industrious leaders in their school while making the world a better place. We are looking for at least 4 volunteers to supervise and manage OP's Green Team. Green Team meets on Wednesday and Friday mornings, so we will need 2 adults for each day. Each volunteer will have approximately 4 students to instruct and supervise while they collect recyclables from classrooms and take them to the dumpster.


Volunteers must arrive by 7:55am and sign in with lobby guard, so they are ready to start at 8:00am. Students should complete tasks by 8:30am, so they can return to their classroom for instruction at this time. Your teacher contact will be Mrs. Sebo.


Please contact Heather Bullock( if you are interested or have questions. Thank you in advance for helping our students do the greatest good for their community!


*MUST be a CMS registered volunteer.

Join the PTA!

8/12/2022 10:00 am

Research shows that parent involvement in their child’s education is the #1 influencer for them doing better in school. We have a group for that — join the PTA!
The PTA is a collaboration between the OP parents, staff and our community who want to see Olde Providence grow and thrive. Everyone has a place here and can use their time, ideas and talent to support OP. All levels of participation are welcome and needed!
When you pay your membership dues in the PTA, you are supporting the mission of national and state PTA’s of advocacy for every child. Not sure what the right fit is for you but still want to support OP? PTA membership is a great first step ! The best part is that ANY ADULT can join the PTA! Parents, grandparents, friend, co-workers — anyone can help make OP the place to be!
Our membership dues have increased slightly this year(what hasn’t?!), but a portion of membership dues are paid to the state and national PTA and the rest goes directly to OP support and activities. The Olde Providence PTA is proud to be the source for field trips, new furniture, classroom supplies, festivals, book fairs, clubs, and so much more, all year long! Join the PTA and get involved! 
Last year we had 197 members, 100 by the first day of school! Can we beat that this year?
Join us! Single $10 and Family $15!
