OAS/BAS 5K is October 15th!

Our annual OAS/BAS 5K & Fun Run is fast approaching on Sunday, October 15th.  This is the largest fundraiser event of the year for both OAS and BAS.  Funds raised by the PTA go directly to students, teachers and the school. Assemblies, clubs, socials, teacher appreciation, classroom and shared space refreshes etc, etc are all supported by PTA funds.  In addition to being a critical fundraiser, the OAS/BAS 5K & Fun Run is a fantastic family event!  Run, Walk or Cheer on the runners!  Get active with your family and support our awesome schools.
We are seeking sponsors for the event.  If you are a business owner, or work with a local business that may be interested in sponsoring please reach out to us at: pta_oas@cranfordschools.org.  There are various sponsorship packages available and we can work with you to get the best exposure possible for your business.

OAS is truly One Awesome School and that is due in large part to you, the OAS families. Our goal is to get as close to 100% of the families to join the PTA as possible.  

Funds raised by PTA membership go to support countless programs for our teachers and students.


Join the PTA: Did you know the PTA funds student events, student enrichment programs, elementary & middle school assemblies, grants for teachers, school beautification and upgrades. Your membership funds these great programs.  Please join the PTA to help us make this year amazing for the OAS community! Link to join online is below.
