    Universal Pre-Kindergarten

    The Orchard Park Central School District (OPCSD) is currently accepting applications for Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) for the 2024-2025 school year. To participate, children must reside in the OPCSD’s attendance area and be four years old on or before December 1, 2024 – meaning, their birthdate must fall between 12-02-19 and 12-01-20. Applications are available online at www.opschools.org/upk and are due by March 8, 2024. The OPCSD is once again able to offer UPK through a grant provided by the New York State Education Department. This grant covers the cost of the program but does not cover transportation. It is the responsibility of each family to transport their child to the UPK site. There are only a designated number of UPK spots available. If the district receives more applications than available openings, a “digital lottery” will determine who will qualify to attend. Children are randomly selected for the program and selection is not based on academic or economic need. All registered children are equally eligible for participation. All students with complete registration before the March 8, 2024 deadline will have an equal chance for selection in the lottery. More information about the registration process and the UPK program is available online. Interested parents/guardians may also contact Amy Woodward at 716-209-6440 or awoodward@opschools.org with program questions. Registration questions may be directed to the Central Registrar at 716-209-6325 or registrar@opschools.org.

  •  The letters of the word Kind against a wall at Ellicott Elementary

    Ellicott Students Celebrate Kindness

    Ellicott Elementary celebrated acts of kindness in February. Physical Education teacher, Mr. Benning recorded a read-aloud of A Spot of Kindness that was played in all the classrooms at Ellicott. After hearing the book and discussing acts of kindness in their classrooms, Ellicott students worked to spread kindness all over the school. When they were "spotted" being kind they earned a spot on the kindness wall. Ellicott's school-wide goal was to fill the word KIND up with spots by the February break. Ellicott students met and surpassed their goal.
