Keeping You in the Loop

Keeping you in the Loop at Orange Grove

Save the date for our first Dine-Out
What can be better than not having to make dinner after a long day?  Not having to make dinner and helping your school!  Papa John’s Sunrise/Kolb, Wed Sept 21st 20% back all day long on all orders. No flyer needed. They will deliver out of area but you must call 299-3232 to place your order.

100% Participation for 100% of the Students
If you attended Pick Up and Unpack or Back to School Night, you are familiar with the Panther Pride Direct Giving Campaign.  We like to focus on participation in this fundraising effort because every donation counts whether is $5 or $500, and it all stays at Orange Grove to benefit all our students and teachers. Thus far we behind on our goal, but it isn’t too late to make a donation!  If you would like to contribute any dollar amount look for the orange envelopes in the office, contact Linda Gee at lsgee@comcast.net or click on the following link:  https://orangegroveffo.com/fundraising/

Lunch Duty Update
Our lunch duty volunteers have been amazing!  I can’t tell you enough how helpful it is to have so many parents lending a hand to supervise students during lunch.  Thank you so much for giving your time and energy to make sure our students are safe and that teachers are getting a break.  If you haven’t had a chance to volunteer yet and would like to, simply click on the following link to sign up. Also, at this link you will be able to read lunch duty tasks that best support the staff:
