OGA's Pictures retakes are scheduled for Wednesday, February 3. Strawbridge has created a signup link: that will allow LaunchEd families to sign up for a time slot between 2:30-4:30p. Students attending F2F will have their pictures taken during the school day.

Pictures are not being delivered to OGA. If you are interested in viewing/ordering pictures, you can create an account on Strawbridge. Any pictures ordered will be sent to your home address.

OGA's Multicultural Fair 2020 is celebrating Holidays Around the World! Projects were submitted showcasing international foods and traditions. You can view videos and presentations. Our 6th grade students created a timeline of various holiday traditions from all over the world. We hope you enjoy!!!

Bonjour, OGA families! Madame Cuomo is so excited to announce that our French Poetry Show is posted! Each grade level learned a different poem to recite for the show, and a few students even made up their own poems! I am so impressed with the hard work of our students, and I love to see them using their French skills! Please enjoy this lovely presentation!
Hello OGA families: With additional students returning Face-to-Face in January, we wanted to share the Arrival/Dismissal Flow Map. There is a School Traffic sign posted as soon as you turn on Oregon St, which directs you to Hardy Ave.
**Parents dropping students off in the morning will receive a car tag.
**The front gates of the school on Oregon will not be open. Drop-off and pick-up will ONLY occur using the above traffic pattern.
As always, please be mindful of and courteous to our neighbors exiting their driveways. Also, please be patient and kind to OGA staff and families as drop-off/pick-up may take longer due to this traffic pattern. We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
