Dear OPES Families,


You may not know this, but September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. Each day, 43 families across the United States will hear the words, "Your child has Cancer." At Orchard Park, we have two families that have been forever changed by those words. Libby Kern (4th grade) and Wren Jansen (Kindergarten) are Cancer Warriors and on September 21st, we are GOING GOLD in support of them and every other child fighting for their lives. We ask that all students wear Gold or Yellow! If you'd like more ways to get involved, please refer to the flyer below. Thank you for all the you do in support of our school!
