OKE has many opportunities for you to be involved in as much or as little as you want. We have programs for stay at home parents, working parents and grandparents. These programs are only possible because of parental involvement are run by volunteers like you and I. We encourage you to volunteer any way you can. Volunteering will excite your child, keep them involved in their learning process and encourages pride in our school.
