Ice Cream Social

Join us for ice cream while you meet your teacher. Held in August every year the Sunday before school starts. 

Family Tailgate

Join us for a fun family evening of hot dogs and games at the school. 

Muffins with Me

On a couple of morings in the fall, parents, grandparents and caregivers are invited to OPE for a morning muffin before school begins. Volunteers are needed to purchase and deliver the muffins.
Dates for 2018 are still being determined. 


Our annual walk-a-thon helps to raise funds for the school while promoting healthy activity for the children. Weather permitting, the students will walk on the outside track by grade level. Parents, grandparents, friends and family are asked to donate (in any amount) to support their student at this event. The date for 2018 is still being determined. 

The International Festival

The International Festival allows OPE families with an out of this nation connection to share with all of us a slice of life from another country. All OPE students will perform by grade level songs with an international connection. Food is available for purchase. Volunteers are needed to collect money when food is purchased and a chairman is needed to plan and coordinate the PTO's role in the event. The OPE faculty generously provide most of the leg work needed to make this event happen.

The Taste of Carmel is OPE's major fundraiser. The event is in March and is only for ages 21 & up. Area resturaunts serve all you can eat samples of their best menu items. Donated items are auctioned. A cash bar will be open. All proceeds benefit OPE PTO. Volunteers are needed to plan the event, to secure donations, and to handle tickets at the door.
