We realize that there are a lot of paper forms that go home with students. Please note that throughout the year, any PAC related notice will be printed on yellow paper. This avoids confusion in determine if the event is a school event or a PAC event. We'll do our best to keep you informed.
Direct Drive Fundraiser was a success
Our Direct Drive is now complete and we are very pleased to announce that we collected just over $5500. It is truly an amazing accomplishment and we are so thankful for all the generous families that contributed! The top division was one of our Kindergarten classes. All the prizes have now been distributed. Because of this successful campaign, we will be able to set aside more money for future capital projects, purchase new jerseys for our sports programs and maintain our skating & dance offerings. Tax receipts for donations over $25 will be sent home in February 2019.
Huge THANK YOU to all students, families, teachers and staff for your ongoing support of our school! YOU are what makes Oppenheimer a great place to send our kids to school!

Hot lunch dates will be up on Munch a lunch December 15th. A reminder that order cutoff dates for Pizza and Subway are 7 days prior to the lunch date and Popcorn orders require 14 days advance. Where possible, please place all your orders in one transaction, as that reduces the transaction fees, which means more funds are saved for our students. Thanks!
Our school PAC is set up with Munch-a-Lunch where parents can order Pizza, Subway, Sushi and Kernels Popcorn on-line. Family accounts from last year remain active. Returning parents can simply log on, update their teacher/classroom information for each of their children and then order as you did before. New families to Oppenheimer can click on the green icon and follow the step by step instruction to set up an account. Our lunch program provides a break to the parents and offers a nutritious lunch option that the students enjoy. Funds raised from our lunch program goes towards the students by way of enhancing resources for the school. Thank you.
*** Please note: If possible, please place orders for all available dates in one transaction. This will cut down transaction fees, and help keep more profits for our students. Thanks.
