Dear OPES Families,
After a gloriously busy October, we have finally reached November. November has always been one of my favorite months. The leaves turn brilliant shades of red and gold, the weather begins to cool and we start reflecting on the people and things we are most grateful for as we enter the holiday season. I am grateful for family, good friends and YOU! As PTO, we sometimes worry that we ask too much of our OPES family, but without fail, you always rise to every occasion. This month, we are hosting a virtual Thanks-GIVE-ing event. We ask for your support in ensuring that all OPES students and their families are able to enjoy a lovely holiday meal. We use the money that you donate to purchase gift cards for the families who are most in need. No amount is too small, so please consider donating. Thank you again for all that you do in support of our school and our students! We hope you have a wonderful November.
