Spring Book Fair

It’s time for the Spring Scholastic Book Fair!!!
We are excited to once again raise funds for the media center and continue to support the amazing progress made this year. We need many hands to make this fair successful, so please sign-up where you can!
We know that April is a very busy time for families. We are planning to have the book fair open 4/13-4/20 (weekdays), but will reassess based on volunteer support.
Thanks OPE families!!!


Science Night with Cranbrook

Morning, OPE families! We have some exciting news to share…
We’ve been able to bring back the fantastic Cranbrook Science Night! There’s a bit of a twist though, instead of only having the 14 experiment stations like last year, we’re going to have the AMAZING Star Lab and a ROCKET LAUNCH!!! We’re so excited for the kiddos…and maybe us adults too. 😉
The event is scheduled for April 19th from 6:00-8:00 pm.
In order to pull off this fun filled event, we’re definitely going to need some helping hands. Below is a link for the sign up genius, we’re only asking for parents to dontate one hour of your time, ensuring there will be time for you to check out everything and enjoy the evening with your kiddos as well.
Thank you!
