Update: September 18, 2017
Congratulations, OPS Community! We've reached our goal of $5000.00! And guess who put us over the top? Indian Hills Elementary collected $500.00 for the relief fund. A big shout out to Robert Holzapfel, his administrative staff and the students and teachers of Indian Hills for "Creating Possibilities!"
We've set a new goal of $7500.00, so pass the word and let others know that Omaha Public Schools rise to the challenge. We will keep the fund open until September 30th, so it's not too late to participate. HISD is really relying on all of us to help them and their children. Keep up the great work, Omaha Public Schools, Omaha Public Schools Foundation and the Omaha Education Association. Read more to make your donation today.
In an effort to assist the Houston Independent School District Foundation with the overwhelming task of putting their school communities back on their feet, the OPS community is reaching out to their own Administrators, Teachers, Staff and Families and the Omaha community at large, to donate to a Hurricane Harvey Relief fund established by the Omaha Public Schools Foundation. Please consider a donation as a way of reaching across the miles to aid Houston students in returning to their schools and getting on with their lives.
