THANK YOU  Thank you to everyone who volunteered for lunchroom and bus duty this first week of school.  We appreciate the time you give our school!


EP SPIRIT WEAR ONLINE STORE   Our Eden Prairie online spirit wear store is open through September 10. A variety of youth and adult items are available for purchase with two different Eden Prairie logos through Sunday, September 10 at midnight.  Items will be delivered to the school approximately four weeks after the store closes.  Visit https://oakpointspirit.itemorder.com to begin your back to school shopping.


KINDERGARTEN MEET-UP   The PTO is hosting an informal gathering for kindergarten students and their families next Tuesday, September 12 from 4:30PM-6:00PM at the Oak Point playground.  This gathering gives kindergartners an opportunity to interact with each other on our playground, while their parents have the opportunity to meet each other.  A peanut-free snack will be provided for the kindergartners.


LUNCHROOM DUTY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED   Volunteers are still needed through September 15 for lunchroom duty.  Lunchroom duty shifts are 60 minutes long, and start times vary depending on grade level.  Sign up for a shift on our website.

OAK POINT FUN RUN SPONSORS NEEDED   The Oak Point Fun Run, powered by Boosterthon, returns to Oak Point in October 2017!  Once again, our goal is to provide each student with an Oak Point Fun Run t-shirt on the day of the event.  Students will wear their t-shirts as a symbol of pride and a year-round trophy for their achievement.  To help is provide these t-shirts at no cost to all students, we are looking for event sponsors.  If you know someone who owns a small business of works in a company who may be interested in an opportunity to advertise their business on the back of 800 t-shirts and sponsor a great community eventm please have them contact Jen Santy at This email address is being protected from spambots.

There are various sponsorship levels available and we are happy to discuss options with anyone who is interested.  For as little as $200, you have the opportunity to be part of something big, show your community support, and receive low-cost advertising for your business all year long.
