A MESSAGE FROM LISA KRADJIAN, PTA PRESIDENT

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Ocean Air! Whether you selected In-Person or Launch Online instruction year, you are part of our school community and we welcome you!

You can be a PTA member whether you are In-Person or Launch! Any adult can be a member of any PTA. The Ocean Air School PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is committed to enhancing our students’ elementary school experience by providing a variety of programs and resources to enhance our students’ educational experience and to support our teachers — both In-Person and Launch. Your support makes these programs possible.

While this year may look different because of COVID-19, we are working on various online events to keep our students engaged and our school community united, including digital assemblies, parent nights, an online readathon, teacher mini-grants, educational resources and more. We are exploring ways you can continue to help and stay involved as well.

A top priority of our PTA is ensuring that all of our OAS families stay connected and informed through our PTA website, www.oceanairpta.org. We hope that this website will be a place that families can visit to get up-to-date information on all PTA programs and activities. We also stay connected with our families through the weekly Sharks Shout Out e-blast, Peach Jar Online Flyers, our Facebook page, our Instagram Page (@oceanair.pta) and through our Membership Toolkit online directory (OA Membership Toolkit).

The Ocean Air School PTA Membership Drive is currently underway, and we hope you will consider becoming a member and supporting our school. Please visit the Membership Toolkit link above to purchase your 2020-2021 PTA membership for $15. The benefits of PTA Membership include voting rights at all of our association meetings and access to our online directory. Additionally, a portion of the funds raised during our membership drive goes to support all of our PTA programs.

On behalf of the PTA Executive Board, I would like to thank you for your dedication to your child’s education, especially at this uniquely challenging time. I encourage you to support your Ocean Air PTA in any way you can. A strong PTA depends on parent involvement, and parent involvement is one of the key factors in student success.

Please feel free to share your thoughts and questions anytime. I look forward to a successful and productive year ahead. Many thanks for the opportunity to serve as your PTA President!

Sincerely,

Lisa Kradjian

OAS PTA President
