OAS Parent Teacher Organization
Welcome to Ocean Avenue School, home of the Dolphins!

The Ocean Avenue Parent Teacher Organization (OAPTO) is a volunteer support organization of parents, teachers and other friends of Ocean Avenue Elementary School.

We build relationships among families, educators, and the community to promote the healthy development and academic achievement of every learner.

We help the OAES community engage, be involved and support whats going on at Ocean Ave Elementary School. Each year, we fund and support a wide range of field trips, community events, in-school and after-school enrichment programs, and classroom needs for our students and teachers. Annually, our goal is to raise and give back to the school approximately $35,000.

Families and businesses support the OAPTO in many ways--from financial and in-kind donations, to volunteering time, to attending events. OAPTO supporters donate time (volunteering at events and enrichment classes,) donate goods (auction items for our annual fundraiser, student needs such as backpacks, snacks, extra clothing and coats/boots/hats and mittens....lots and lots of mittens!) and donate money (for enrichment scholarships etc.) All of these donations combine to make Ocean Ave a strong school community.
