Parent Teachers Association (PTA)

Orangewood Elementary School PTA
"Every Child, One Voice..."

 

Welcome to the Orangewood Community...

Last year, our PTA hosted several successful events and fundraisers.   I continue to be amazed at the tremendous support with our fundraisers.  The Fall Fundraiser, Book Fair, Spring Fundraiser and Walk-a-thon will support Orangewood student activities.  Because of your support, our educational programs are continuously enhanced for all students.  We are always in need of volunteers to work our events.  If you have any time to volunteer please contact the office.  We need you!
