Bowser visited all the classrooms at the end of the school year and handed out a personalized OFRS Bowser to each student (compliments of the OFRS PTA).
We recognize how challenging this year has been, and we have been impressed with OFRS students perseverance. The PTA purchased Spirit Day t-shirts for each student and a giveaway. Our very own Bowser wagged his tail down the hallways of OFRS, visiting every classroom and handing out a custom Bowser squishy. Great Job OFRS!

FRIDAY, May 28
The Spring Walk-a-thon is THIS FRIDAY during recess!! Information and sponsor forms were sent home in backpacks last week, but included here for your easy reference. Important to note: Since we still are not able to have any parent volunteers at the school for these activities, we aren’t able to track the number of laps done by each student individually and needed to simplify the process. Therefore, all students will all do a standard 10 laps. This has been the typical individual lap count in the past, though some students had exceeded that goal. Each student that walks will receive a paper of the 10 lap goal completion.
Historically, the Walk-a-thon has been one of the best fundraisers for OFRS PTA, yet the fall virtual Walk-a-thon raised less than 50% of our normal goal, and had a very low participation rate from the students, but we know that this has not been a normal year. Now that most kids are back in school, we hope to bring back a little bit of that ‘normal’ and students will be participating with their classes this Friday. All money raised will be going towards the outdoor tents that the OFRS PTA has purchased, that are already being used for outdoor classroom space – amongst many other expenses that the PTA was asked to fund throughout the school year. Please help support this last fundraiser of the school year, in order to make this one a HUGE success!
In preparation for the fall, we are currently looking for enthusiastic volunteers to be Room Representatives for the 2021-2022 school year. This is a great opportunity for you to be a big part of your child’s school life. If you have never done it before, we highly recommend it.
