Support HF's Sports! 
Join Harborfield's 
Booster Club!
 
The Harborfields Booster Club was established in 1978 to promote and encourage extracurricular activities, particularly athletic sports, for the students of the Harborfields Central School District.  
 
The Booster Club's primary focus is to financially enhance the district's physical education and athletic department budget in support of ALL sports.  They do this through annual membership dues and other fundraising events.  
 
 We encourage all families, particularly those with student athletes at OMS and the High School, to support the athletic programs in the district by becoming a member of the 
 Booster Club.
 
Find out more about Booster's and Membership information @

MARCHING INTO SPRING
March is looking to be a very
 busy month with lots of 
activities for everyone:  
 
The 6th grade will be selecting their languages for next year, enjoying the great Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser on March 10th and showing off their
Science Fair projects on March 15th.   
     
The week of March 6th we will be celebrating Foreign Languages and culture. More details will be provided soon.  Also, on March 6th, Spring Sports sign-ups begin.  Be sure to get your forms in! 
They are available in the Nurses office.
If you're looking for a great time, come check
out our student production of 
The Music Man on March 24th and March 25th.
 
Lastly, with all this activity, consider taking a time-out and unplug with us on March 6th for National Unplug Day.  Take some time with your family and friends without the assistance of electronics.  Click here for more information and here for the form.
 
We hope you get to enjoy all the activities the
Month of March 
has to offer as we begin the 
countdown to Spring!

WHY JOIN THE OMSPTA?
     Joining OMS PTA enables you to become part of an important advocacy organization focused on student success.  Each year, we work with OMS teachers & administrators to identify appropriate student and school needs that we can help meet. 
 
     Over the  years, OMS PTA grants to our school helped to enhance students' educational opportunities by funding such items as:
Sewing machines, Scanners, Smartboards, Subscriptions to 
assist with ELA preparedness, equipment for the technology and science rooms and Lego robotics kits. 
  
For the safety of all of our children please be patient
during the drop off and pick-up times.  
OMS has established safe traffic patterns and ask all
parents to work with us to ensure all of our 
children's safe arrival and dismissal. 
 
Also, please be on-time for drop-off and  pick-up for school events.
 
Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
