Your PTA Dollars At Work

We are so excited to announce the arrival of the Rutgers Science Bus!

Over the next few weeks, the Rutgers Science Bus will visit OAS and give all of our middle school students an opportunity to experience this unique, at-school field trip! This is a state-of-the-art mobile laboratory contained within a 40-foot custom-designed bus. The Rutgers Science Explorer is staffed by Rutgers scientists, who will lead our students in experiments exploring the excitement of the life, earth, and physical sciences.

We are thrilled to be able to fund this opportunity for our OAS students!

Box Tops Goes Digital

boxtop

OAS is participating in Box Tops for Education, which means that you can earn cash with the products you already buy to help our school get the supplies it needs. Our goal is to earn $1000 through Box Tops this year!

Here’s how you can help:

1. Download the Box Tops app on your phone and follow instructions on how to set up an account and sign up to support our school.

2. Then, just shop as you normally would.

3. Use the app to snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase. It’ll automatically identify any Box Tops participating products and you’ll give back to our school with each product you buy. If you shop online, you can earn with your digital or email receipt, too. See how to submit those receipts at BTFE.com/digitalreceipts.

If you shop at Shoprite, earning money for shopping is even easier through ShopRite for My School. https://www.shopriteformyschool.com Just link your Price Plus Card to Shoprite for My School and select Orange Avenue School.  Bonus Box Tops earnings will be automatically credited to your selected school’s account. You can still scan your receipt for additional box tops.

Please contact Amanda Cowell (amanda.cowell@gmail.com) with any questions or if you need assistance downloading the app, scanning receipts or linking your price plus card.

OAS HELPING HANDS COMMITTEE

Do you know of an OAS family dealing with an emergency or crisis?

If you’re interested in being a part of our volunteer list, please contact Coiel.

Email Coiel Ricks-Stephen (coielrs@gmail.com) to learn more about helping an OAS family and please put “Helping Hands” in the subject line.
