Thank You to Our OV Community!

The Olympic View PTA (OVPTA) is incredibly grateful and thankful to all of our volunteers, families, sponsors, and the Olympic View staff and administration for supporting our mission. Thank you!

What's New?

THANKS to everyone who came to our Fall General PTA Meeting. It was great to hear from you! If you have any questions or feedback for the PTA you can always contact us at president@ovpta.org or info@ovpta.org.   


Bundle Up Reminder! Many classroom windows are open to provide extra ventilation and many kids are eating outside. As the weather cools off, make sure your student has enough layers so they are comfortable and ready to learn (and play) every day.

The OVPTA Amazon Wishlist is live, again! I posted the wrong link in the newsletter -- sorry about that! We'll keep the Teacher and School List updated for you with OV needs that you can help with! Thanks!

And while you're there... 
Check out the Family Coat Drive Wishlist
It's getting cold out there! With kids eating and playing outside and many windows in classrooms open for ventilation, it's more important than ever that OV students are bundled up. Olympic View reached out to find families who needed help getting a new warm coat for their student. There were many requests. The majority have already been purchased. Please help us fulfill the remaining requests! Check out the list! You may purchase a same-size coat wherever you like, but please try to check it off the list by clicking "Purchased Elsewhere" so we can keep track. Thank you for helping keep all our students warm and comfortable! 
Post and Share the link with family and friends! Thank you!
