PRELIMINARY CLASS LIST
Friends of Oak Park Schools is excited to present the 2013 Summer School Program for OPUSD Students. This program is designed to enhance your student’s education experiences and opportunities in our own backyard. Friends of Oak Park Schools is proud to step in where, due to the education cuts from the State, OPUSD can no longer afford to offer summer school.
All classes taken at the High School will be taught by Oak Park’s finest certificated teachers and the grades will be transferred to the student’s transcripts.
Friends will again offer a Middle School program at Medea Creek!
Summer School Dates:
Tuesday, June 18, 2013 Opening of the six-week summer school program for high school and middle school.
Please note that Thursday, July 4 and Friday July 5 will be vacation days.
Friday, July 26, 2013 End of high school and middle school six-week program.
Did you know that our local property taxes only provide about 1/3 of the funding for our schools in Oak Park? The bulk of the funding comes from the State of California. We all know that funding to the schools in our state has been significantly reduced and we believe this to be a trend for at least the next few years; meaning we face a continuing negative effect the financial situation for our schools.
More than ever, we need your help, and your contributions!
Our “Dollar a Day” program will help ensure that our programs will remain intact.
One of the valuable programs that Friends of Oak Park Schools currently funds is a Science Specialist Program, which has helped us retain, enhance and create the following:
- Outdoor Elementary and Middle School education trips, including Catalina and Santa Cruz Islands
- Enhancement of the OPUSD Sustainable Gardens Project
- Middle and High School Robotics and Solar Car Programs
- New Marine Science Program
- This year’s Idea to Impact Competition Program
Our School District is something that defines the community of Oak Park. As the foundation donations grow, the additional innovative program support will grow as well.
Over 98% of our graduating seniors continue on to college. This accomplishment speaks volumes about our student’s commitment and the district’s accomplishments.
Please help us retain this successful tradition of enhancing the educational excellence with a contribution to Friends of Oak Park Schools’ annual fund campaign. Your financial support is for our next generation of decision makers and leaders.
Thank you in advance for your continued support…it always helps to have “Friends!”
