Dear OPA Families and Staff,


Happy December!! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and a great week back at school. It was definitely full of great activities, and we are getting more and more busy as we near winter break.


Congratulations to our OPA Spelling Bee winners! For SOC, Armaan Kumar (grades 3-5) and Ellie Twardos (grades 6-8) were our champions and for SV, Garrett Riedel (grades 3-5) and Nikkhil Nair (grades 6-8). Our 6-8th grade winners will be invited to represent OPA at the County Spelling Bee in the spring. Congratulations Champions!!


Report cards are now available in the Aeries Parent Portal. Please click here for instructions explaining how to access report cards. If you are not able to print your students report card and would like a hard copy, please reach out to your school.


If you have not done so already, please take a few minutes to complete our Annual LCAP Survey (Educational Partners Parent Survey). Your feedback is extremely important and tar information gained from the survey results help inform our school site decisions, goals, and action plans.


Capistrano Unified School District, in partnership with Orange County Department of Education,  has invited our OPA parents to attend a parent education evening on Supporting Healthy and Resilient Teens. This session targets parents, guardians and caring adults and will be discussing current substance use trends, risks, and warning signs along with how to support teens through the use of healthy coping strategies.  Click here to register for this event.
