Dine Out @ Chipotle
Wednesday March 22nd from 5:00-9:00 p.m. Chipotle on Ina/Oracle will donate 50%! of sales to our school. No flyer needed but you must mention you are there to support Orange Grove Middle School. Please help spread the word and get as many people there as possible- this could be a BIG money maker for our school.

Mark your calendar for our last dine-out of the year. Thursday April 20th, all day, MOD pizza on Wetmore/Oracle. A flyer will be needed (coming soon).

*THANK YOU Kelley Helfand for heading up our dine-out committee this year! You have made a huge impact on our school!! Great work!

8th Grade Promotion
The FFO has a wonderful promotion planned for your student and is suggesting a $10 donation from each 8th grader. These donations will cover the ceremony, cookie reception, 8th grade dance, and lunch on the last day of school. You can make your donation from your intouch account or in the front office. (user ID- Student ID, Password- Students last name first letter capitalized).

Volunteer Opportunities
-We can always use help during lunch!  If you can lend a hand during one or both lunch periods on any given day, or on a regular basis, please go to the following website to sign up:
-If you’ve ever considered an executive board or committee chairperson position and want to know what’s involved, please send me an email at  I’d love to hear from you!
-Can’t give your time but would still like to help? We are always in need of supplies at school. Current top needs are Kleenex!, colored paper, and nut free snacks for the nurse’s office.

Shop and Earn Cash for OGMS
Do you shop at AJ’s, Bashas’ or Food City?  If so, you should consider buying a Bashas’ Community Rewards Card.  The cards act as reloadable gift cards that you can use to purchase groceries at any of the Bashas’, AJ’s, or Food City stores.  You can purchase a $10 Bashas’ card (pre-loaded with $10) in the front office.  OGMS receives 6% back on every card purchase and then each time you reload your card.
