Dear OGMS Panther Families,

We’re already off and running in 2018! Here’s a round-up of upcoming events that you want to know about:

  • Thursday, Jan. 25 – Join us at 8:30 a.m. for our first FFO meeting of the new year
  • Also Thursday, Jan. 25 – All 8th-grade parents will want to come to our parent meeting, beginning at 7:45 a.m. CFHS Principal Jody Brase will share key information with us about the transition to high school, including important dates and events designed to help our children transition successfully. We’ll have coffee and light breakfast to tempt you.
  • Monday, Feb. 12 – We’re making dinner easy to start the week! Join us for our Dine Out at Sauce and Sauce will donate 15% of the revenue to OGMS.

With less than 90 school days remaining this year (yep, 90!), we have A LOT of work to pack into a relatively short amount of time – and we need your help!

  • Color Run volunteers – Help organize this fun-filled, action-packed fundraiser, which is one of the highlights of the year! Color Run will be held on March 2. Please contact me to learn more.
  • Treasurer – Our amazing treasurer is moving Down Under, so we urgently need a new treasurer who can assume responsibility at the end of this school year (rather than the typical beginning of next school year). Please contact me to learn more.
  • 8th-grade promotion – Crazy as it seems, our 8th graders will soon finish their middle school years. These pay-it-forward volunteer opportunities are for 6th and 7th-grade parents so that our 8th-grade parents can relax and enjoy the commencement events. Please contact me to learn more.

We’re far short of our Panther Pride participation goal. Come on Panther families, we know we can do this! We truly value every donation of every dollar amount, and we commit to putting your donations to work right here at OGMS for the benefit of your students. Recent FFO-funded donations:

  • A new garden, designed and constructed by OGMS students and aligned with the science core curriculum
  • Extra choir and band shirts, PE supplies, and art supplies
  • New books for the library, with titles selected by a student-led committee

To make your donation today, please donate online with SquareUp or donate by check in the front office.

It truly takes a village to raise our OGMS Panthers. Thank you for being part of our village.
