Thank you to all of you that attended the Seed Swap. Thank you to Anna Cash for organizing the connection for OPA to the Gardeners of Ogden!
OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS:
I have been the Principal of OPA for four years now and learned more about kids who work hard, than in all of my twenty-one year career. Several of our students at the secondary level have been studying Spanish for up to 10 years. At the culmination of their time here at OPA, we encourage a trip to Spanish-speaking countries. As you know we pick trip locations well in advance and try to provide up to a year’s worth of fund raising opportunities for all students that commit to these trips. We are excited about the growth of these programs. The number of students participating has steadily increased and has given over 200+ students the opportunity to travel internationally and use their Spanish language skills.
I share these fantastic facts with you to ask for special support. Students fund raise and get summer jobs, but any outside support that a family or business can provide increases the opportunities for all students. Please consider sponsoring a student to go to Spain. As a school we can provide documentation for charitable donations for tax deduction, and you will be providing the experience of a lifetime. I can always be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-627-3066 if you are able to support one of our students in this opportunity.
