A letter from the President-Sheila Rice
Dear Ocean Palms Families:
On behalf of the Ocean Palms Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), I would like to welcome new families to the OPE community and “welcome back” those returning for the 2016-2017 school year. My name is Sheila Rice, and it is my pleasure to serve as your PTO President.
This is going to be a fabulous year at OPE as we look to continue upon our success from last year where we raised over $171,000. Through our efforts, we were able to fund a number of instructional programs and initiatives including increasing technology devices in all classrooms Pre-K-5, supporting the purchase of essential curriculum resources, and spearheading the funding for our new multi-purpose sports field, which will be ready later this Fall.
Our goal for the 2016-2017 school year is to further our support of the administration, teachers, staff, students and families of Ocean Palms by providing funding for educational and recreational needs while promoting a greater sense of community.
In order to meet these important objectives and goals, the PTO must fundraise. This year our goal is to raise $180,000. This funding will be used to maintain and update our technology devices and equipment, continue supporting software and hardware that we previously purchased, enhance professional development for our teachers and faculty, purchase additional programs to support our curriculum (e.g. – STEM resources) and create a new outdoor learning space for our children.
We can reach our goals with the help of our community business partners and you! The PTO encourages you to join us, and our partners in education, to work to achieve these goals for our school and our children by volunteering your time in the classroom, chairing/volunteering for PTO events, and investing in a PTO membership.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and our wonderful school. We invite you to join us in our goal to achieve 100% participation in PTO memberships.
Sheila Rice, Ocean Palms PTO President
