New PTA Committee: First Grade Mentoring Committee

Please read the introduction and description below, and reach out to OMS PTA at olivepta@gmail.com if you are interested in working on one of these committees.

We have had an interest and request for the development of a committee that could help new first grade families transition into OMS with ease. Believe it or not, OMS has a large population of first graders that attended another school in the area for kindergarten, so these students and families are coming to the school brand new. We would like to start a committee that could help these kids and families get to know each other and the community, so they feel right at home when starting school.

Mentoring/First Grade:

  • In early April/May, committee should meet to discuss play date dates for June, July, and August and work with OMS office staff to reach out to incoming first grade families.
  • Establish an email list from the interest form completed by the parents. Communicate with incoming first grade families reminding them about upcoming play dates and offer to answer any questions that they might have.
  • Coordinate approximately 3-4 play dates.
  • Write an article for the Twig
