OVPTA Seeks Sponsors

Sponsorship is a key component to meeting our fundraising goals and sponsorship levels start as low as $250. Reach out to president@ovpta.org if you want more information. Thanks!

Are you interested in joining an OV Ski Bus? No skiing experience necessary. We are considering starting a Ski Bus for OV students, however are trying to figure out if there will be enough interest. Ski Bus would run for 6 Thursday afternoons in January and February. The program includes a coach bus trip departing from OV, going to the Summit at Snoqualmie for a 2.5 hour small-group lesson, and then returning to OV by about 8pm. The lessons are run by the very experienced Snow Sports Consulting Service out of Bellevue (https://www.snowsportsconsultingservice.com/).
The cost of the 6 lessons and bus transportation is $575/student. There will be a limited number of scholarships available. If you are at all interested, please complete the following interest form (this is not a registration form! we are just seeking interest!). You can also reach out to Krista Birnie (krista.birnie@gmail.com) with questions.

Show your Eagle Spirit!! Buy Spirit Wear
We believe that OV gear builds community pride and every student should be able to show their spirit, so we have priced these shirts as low as possible. This is not intended to be a PTA fundraiser, but if we receive any money from these campaigns, we will purchase shirts to distribute to students who may not be able to afford them. Click here or the Donate and Buy Tab.
