Odyssey Parent Participation Group (OPPG)

Every parent of an Odyssey student is a member of the Odyssey Parent Participation Group (OPPG).  OPPG is a volunteer group working exclusively on behalf of all children at Odyssey Charter School (OCS). The OPPG hosts a variety of meetings, events, and activities throughout the year to build community! 

What OPPG can do for YOU:

  • Offer many different opportunities to participate in your child’s education.

  • Provide a place to meet other parents and discuss parent and school ideas or questions.

  • Help your concerns be heard by Staff and/or the Odyssey Governing Board.

  • Bring in and/or support current and new programs for our children.

  • Give you a voice in deciding where money raised should be spent.

What YOU can do for OPPG

  • Attend OPPG meetings during the year. Meet other families, hear what is going on at school, and find out what you can do to help.

  • Volunteer for events! The more parents that volunteer, the more successful our school is.

  • READ READ READ!  Read information sent home in weekly Thursday Packets, read communications from your Room Parent(s) and any communications sent to you via email and/or text through the OCS School Reach system.  

  • Stay tuned to the calendar on this website for upcoming events.
