Welcome

Welcome to the Old Orchard Junior High School PTA website!

Hello and welcome back to school!  As the president of the Old Orchard Junior High School PTA (Parent-Teacher Association), I am looking forward to making the 2017-2018 school year an amazing one for all our students, our teachers, and our faculty.

 The Old Orchard Junior High (OOJH) PTA is part of a national organization that has been in existence for more than 100 years.  The PTA helps bridge the gap between home and school so that parents and teachers can collaborate to do what is best for all of our children.

 Research shows when parents are involved in the education of their children, students do better.  Grades and test scores increase while discipline problems decrease.  Hundreds of studies over the past 30 years prove children with involved parents are more likely to graduate and go on to higher education.

 Joining the PTA is a great way for parents to be involved in our school.

 Your PTA membership allows us to be advocates for all of our children, and it gives us a voice in state and national government.  The yearly PTA dues are only $10 per family.

 Please contact us with your ideas, suggestions, and questions at oojhpta@gmail.com 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Carima Salameh 847 673-5707
