Funding

How does the PTA enhance OFRS with your donations?

  • Grade level programs ( 1 for each grade level K-5)
  • At least 2 all school assemblies per year
  • Author visits
  • Sound enhancement systems ( these are the microphones most teachers wear around their necks in the classrooms)
  • Annual teacher grants (this year $2000 in grants)
  • White Boards
  • 30 iPads plus 2 MacBooks that runs the iPads plus storage cart
  • African Drums for the Music Class
  • Rock Wall in the gym
  • Mascot Costume
  • Each year Miss McElwaine (now known as Mrs. Flannagan) has each child in her class write a book that is then presented to the parents as a hardcover book. The PTA pays for her supplies for this great program.
  • Start Up Funding for each classroom & specials teacher
  • Recess Equipment (eg: tetherball sets plus other equipment)
  • Family Fun Nights
  • Sound System ($600) which is used by all grades for all shows
