Spirit/ Wish Week
March 13-17th OPA will participate in Wish Week in conjunction with Westy High School to help raise money to make Allie's wish come true!
Our Wish Kid, Allie, is a 17-year-old from Kremmling, CO. Allie’s wish is to meet her favorite football player. During her sophomore year, she fell ill during a volleyball game and was later diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a heart condition.
We will be having penny wars all week so bring in all your pennies! We will also raise money thru our spirit week.
- Monday: Jersey Day: Pay $1 to wear a hat
- Tuesday: Disney day: Pay $.50 to do the guesstimation
- Wednesday: PJ day: Pay $5 to do a TikTok with a teacher
- Thursday: Decade day: Pay $1 to enter a raffle to become a staff member for a day
- Friday: St. Patricks day: Wear green & pay $2 to get your hair spray painted

Free Lunch Program
During the pandemic, the federal government provided funding to allow all students to receive free breakfast and lunch regardless of their income. Unfortunately, that funding ended this year. Please make sure you fill out the free & reduced lunch application here as it may provide your student meals at a free or reduced cost.
Lunches can be paid for with cash, or you can load money into your student's lunch account at www.MySchoolBucks.com. The cost for breakfast and lunch are:
- $0.00 Breakfast PreK-12th (Free, Reduced & Paid)
- $0.00 Lunch PreK-5th (Free, Reduced & Paid)
- $0.00 Lunch 6th-8th (Free, Reduced)
- $2.50 Lunch 6th-8th (Paid)
Please pay your school fees at your earliest convenience on your parent portal. Just click here and sign in with your user name and password (same one you used to do registration). Then follow these steps once you are signed in:
- On the left side of the page click on “more”
- In the middle of the page under quick links click “online payment center”
