OFRS Cookbook

Did you know that the last cookbook that OFRS PTA published was 18 years ago?  Our 2021 Cookbook, features 60+ recipes from some of our 5th grade students and OFRS staff.  It’s looking like a scrumptious cookbook. 

Pre-orders for the cookbook are required so we know how many to order.  Each book costs $20 and pre-orders need to be completed by March 29, 2021.
