         A Message From The Principal

    I hope this communication finds you and your family doing well. We cannot tell you how happy we are to be getting back to a more typical school experience and springtime activity schedule.  Over the last few weeks, we have been working to plan and reorganize end-of-year events, which takes some time. Thank you for being patient through this process.  I would also like to thank the PTO for being part of this process and helping whenever they can. Please note date changes for some events. 

    Here are some activities happening at OPMS (please note some activities will be grade-level specific):

    • April 4 through April 8: School-wide Kindness Challenge
    • April 29 through May 1: World Affairs Club trip to Washington, DC
    • May 5: Battle of the Books
    • May 6: Just Buffalo Literacy Author Visit
    • May 13: Civil War Encampment experience
    • May 19: Tech Wars at ECC South
    • May 24 and 25: NYSSMA Performances for Band and Orchestra
    • June 2, 6, or 7: 6th-grade base field trips
    • June 10: 8th Grade Celebration
    • June 14: 7th Grade Wellness Day
    • June 15 - 22: Finals Exams for all students. Students will have at least one exam each day. 

    I hope you and your family have a relaxing Spring Break from April 11th until April 15th.  School resumes on Monday, April 18th.
