This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we can’t do it without your help.  Each year, the profit from Band Night is used for important things like school assemblies, student social events, teacher mini-grants, and OAS beautification projects.

Tickets are now available! Don’t miss out, order today by filling out this TICKET FORM and returning it to OAS.

The Band Night Committee is also seeking voluntary donations to help make this event a success. Either cash or a check made out to OAS PTA, in an envelope marked “Band Night Donations” with your child’s name and class on it or items for the tricky tray baskets.

What’s BYOT?

byod1-resized-600BYOT stands for “Bring Your Own Technology” and it’s the latest trend that schools across the world are implementing!  Students are given the option to bring in their own device (non-gaming, non-phone).  Tablets, laptops, etc… are acceptable.  The devices simply need to be WiFi ready and they can connect to the school’s internet, which comes with content controls built in.  OAS recently announced their BYOT Program, which is OPTIONAL for Middle School Students (6th, 7th, and 8th graders only).  Visit the districts BYOT page for all the details:
