There are many ways for Overlake parents to get involved and connect with the Overlake community:
Overlake Athletics Club (OAC)
The Overlake Athletics Club (OAC) initially formed in 1994 under the name Overlake Booster Club. With over 75% of our students in grades 6-12 participating in Overlake Athletics, the OAC’s role has never been so vital. The purpose of the Overlake Athletics Club is to support Overlake Athletics and the Athletic Department through fundraising, promotion of athletic events and enhancing school spirit. OAC's income comes from the sales of Overlake promotional items (sweatshrits, shirts, etc) and donations from parents.
The time and energy parent volunteers give to the Overlake Athletics Club and our student athletes is impressive. With over 45 Overlake teams, volunteers are needed as team parents, photo coordinators, uniform trackers, promotional item sales people, fundraiser assistants, and varsity recognition event planners. All parents are invited to “Give A Hoot” and join us in Helping Our Overlake Teams!
Overlake Friends of the Arts (OFTA)
Overlake Friends of the Arts (OFTA) provides volunteer and financial support for all of the Arts programs at The Overlake School. OFTA volunteers: Raise funds... Dance, music, theatre, and visual arts courses all benefit from OFTA's support.
Parent Education Seminars
Sponsored by the PFSA, the Parent Education Seminar Series brings speakers on a variety of topics relevant to parenting in the 21st century.
Parent / Faculty / Staff Association (PFSA)
All current parents and guardians, faculty, and staff are members of the PFSA. The purposes of PFSA are:
- to facilitate communication between parents/guardians of students, faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees of the school;
- to provide supplemental funds for the school through various fundraising events;
- to facilitate the establishment and maintenance of an effective learning environment for Overlake students, and
- to support the school and its programs.
Developed at The Overlake School in 1996, ParentNet is a national program that facilitates discussion of everyday parenting topics, encouraging parent networking and mutual support, and enhancing communication between parents, students, and schools. Grade-level meetings are held twice a year—in the Fall and Spring.
