    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 andschool
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.
