Hey everyone.
Hope you are all staying safe and doing well during these times. We recently received in the hats that were ordered to be sold at Otterpalooza. A huge shout out largely to Brown & Brown Insurance for sponsoring and purchasing these awesome hats. Also want to give a shout out to Dome Hats for their design. We were planning to sell the hats at Otterpalooza but want to do a presale now to keep our OPE spirit and support going. We have them currently for sale at $20/hat. I am happy to deliver to your front door if there is any interest in purchasing one or more hats. You can reach out to me at stacy.rendzio@gmail.com. Preferably would prefer payment via Venmo at @Stacy-Rendzio. I will however, accept a check if you do not have Venmo. Please just leave your payment in your mailbox and I will grab it the day I drop off hats.

Would love to see the kids and parents wearing the hats from a “safe distance” or while riding bikes through your neighborhoods.

Remember – all proceeds go to the playground! We are very close!!!

Please everyone stay safe and wash your hands!!!

Introducing our first ever custom engraved pavers project at Ocean Palms Elementary!
Don’t miss your chance to leave a lasting legacy on our campus by personalizing a 4×8 paver with your family’s name or a shout out to a favorite teacher or staff member.
The cost is $200 for one paver or $150 each for two or more pavers. 100% of the proceeds will go to our new playground, and as always, donations are tax-deductible.
Pavers will be installed near the front doors of Ocean Palms this summer!
Go to www.opepto.com/playground-events/ for more details, to order online or print out an order form.
Thank you for supporting Ocean Palms!


Playground Project Information Website is up and running!


Please click on the link to the Playground Project website which will explain why we need to fund raise, how much we’ve raised, fundraising event updates, contact information if you have any sponsor suggestions and/or questions and the ability to make personal donations. We encourage you to take a look at the information (especially the cool videos!) and send it out to other people in the community.

As most of you know, we are fundraising this year to build a new playground for the kiddos. The PTO needs your help to reach our goal of $150,000 for the new playground and wanted to let you know how you can help.
