Order Next Year’s School Supplies Online and Have Them Delivered Directly to Your Home Over the Summer!

YOU CAN NOW 

– AND THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER –

ORDER NEXT YEAR’S SCHOOL SUPPLIES!

 

SHOP FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME!!

Even though a lot has changed, this past spring, our OES  teachers for each grade put together their requested school supplies for next year.  THIS YEAR, they put together two lists:  

  • one list for more or less “regular” in-class, face-to-face classroom instruction and

  • one list for full-time distance learning instruction.*

So, for now, you will see two different options for your student(s) when ordering school supplies.  YOU MAY WANT TO CHOOSE THE ITEMS IN THE DISTANCE LEARNING LISTS NOW; HOWEVER, YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE!! You can add or delete items to your box based on what you want and what you already have! 

(*The distance learning school supplies list for some grades is very different from their regular school supplies list; for other grades, the lists are basically identical.  These lists are teacher created). 

As always, keep this in mind:

  • We receive these school supplies at a discounted price from our vendor, School Tool Box.

  • Supplies will be shipped directly to your home over the summer for when you specify.

  • You can customize each student’s school supplies box, taking out items you may already have or adding more items if you wish.

  • For each box purchased, School Tool Box will supply a meal to a children in need.

School supplies ordering information will be up on our PTA Website throughout the summer, and we will send some additional reminders through the Panther Express and Facebook. 

If you have any questions, please contact Nicole White at nbateywhite@yahoo.com

TO ORDER, SEE BELOW!!

Special Education Update – AUGUST 2020

The Special Education Spotlight – AUGUST 2020

IT’S ALL ABOUT INCLUSION

The OES PTA Special Education Committee was formed in 2012 in an effort to create an awareness of and address matters relevant to this vital part of our school’s population. With the inclusivity of ALL students and families as our primary goal, we strive to be the direct link between our school’s Special Education/IEP community, PTA, students and families and the diverse Special Education offerings of our local area.

If you are new to OES, seek additional information about Special Education and wish to establish connections with others at our school; or if you are interested in joining our committee (all are welcome!), we encourage you contact our Special Education Liaisons, Andrea Zuppas and Maren Wood at special.education@oaktonpta.net.
