The PTA will be sponsoring several breakfasts and lunches for the teachers and we could use some help with the set-up and clean-up.


Book Nook

Book Nook

Once a month classrooms will visit our very own Orrington book store where students can purchase a book to take home. We need volunteers to help students find books that are just right for them. This is a lot of fun and a great way to see the kids in school.

Teacher Gifts

If you'd like to give a gift, the PTA is asking you to please consider making a donation of any amount to the teacher gift fund. The money will then be shared amongst all the teachers and will allow them to receive their gift in the form of a gift card of their choice. Families will be able to include a personal note with their donation but the donation amount will be kept private.
