Get Involved at Oscar J. Pope Elementary School

There are many ways you can get involved at Oscar J. Pope Elementary School!  We are actively seeking parents and family members to join our PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) to work on special projects such as fundraisers, yearbook, student and staff incentives, and promoting the school in the community.  Your membership in the OJP PTO is free!

Another avenue to explore as you get involved is to join the School Advisory Council (SAC).  The SAC committee meets once a month, usually on the third Friday at 7:30 A.M. in the Jay W. Erwin Media Center.  This committee consists of school staff, parents, and community members.  Monthly SAC meetings focus on the good news of OJP and ways we are moving forward to raise student achievement. 

Have you considered being a school volunteer?  Volunteers help in a multitude of ways such as cutting out laminating for teachers, shelving books in the Jay W. Erwin Media Center, putting up bulletin board displays, assisting on field trips, and mentoring students.  If you are interested in being a school volunteer, please get in touch with Mrs. Grier, our school counselor and volunteer coordinator.

One of the fundraisers we participate in each year is Box Tops for Education.  General Mills provides ten cents to our school for each box top submitted.  Check your child's Wednesday folder regularly for the monthly box tops collection sheet.  Please remember to check the expiration date on the box top before submitting.  If you need additional box tops collection sheets, we will be glad to provide them to you!

June is Administrator Appreciation Month

Each month, we recognize a stellar group of Oscar J. Pope Elementary stakeholders.  For the month of June, we recognize our administrators.  Ms. Birdsong and Mr. Huntley have been the administrative team at OJP for 4 years.  They have an open door policy for all stakeholders to share their comments, ask questions, and voice concerns.  Ms. Birdsong and Mr. Huntley truly believe that all students can and will learn with the support of their families and loved ones.  We are grateful for their leadership at OJP.
