Funds Raised Via This Dine-out Will Directly Support OGMS Staff


Due to disproportionally high staff turnover at OMGS, a large percentage of our teachers are on the low end of the PPS pay scale. The financial implications of a strike will hit many of these teachers particularly hard.

The PAT building organizer at OGMS recently surveyed staff about needs during the strike. Half of the staff identified that they would benefit from grocery and gas cards during loss of wages. All proceeds of this fundraiser + any direct donations made via the link below will support the purchase of gift cards for OGMS staff. 

Thanks to a great turn-out, Mike's Drive-in will be donating $316 to OG Supporters in support of OGMS! 

Community Care Day

More than 30 community members, including students, staff, and neighbors, worked together to spruce up the grounds of Ockley Green Middle School, including our basketball court. Thank you to all who lent their time and talents!  

Ockley Green is very excited to invite you and your whole family to see what students are creating in their Social Science classes. Please join us to see their work at the 2nd annual OG Culture & Community Night, Wednesday, April 26, 2023, 5:30-8:00 PM, at Ockley Green.

Here’s a form to tell our teachers if your family can make it (and so we know how much food to order): tinyurl.com/OGCCRSVP23

Thank you for stopping by The Stacks Coffeehouse! They'll be donating  $153.09 to Ockley Green Supporters, based on purchases made during our profit share day. 

Proceeds from this fundraiser will support the OGMS 8th Grade Capstone Dance Team's culminating trip to Vegas. In Vegas, they'll participate in a workshop with the world famous Jabbawockees and also experience a live performance. If you'd like to contribute towards the cost of this exceptional opportunity, but dining out on the 28th won't fit into your schedule, click on the Direct Donation button below to make a donation via Square.

Update: The Tough Luck fundraiser brought in $373, with another $100 being donated via Square. Thank you for your support! 

Thanks to everyone who ordered pizza during the event, Mississippi Pizza will be donating $350 in support of OGMS!

Project Community Care

Project Community Care is an opportunity for community members to create connections with their neighborhood school, while helping to beautify school grounds before students return for the 2022/23 school year.


RSVP is not required, but it would help organizers know how big they should be dreaming! The current wishlist includes:

If you're able to, please bring your own tools and gloves. (Weed whackers and pruners are especially needed.)
