    Family Solutions Center

    The Orchard Park Central School District and the Town of Orchard Park have come together to assist the families of the community by opening the Orchard Park Central School District Family Solutions Center, located within the Orchard Park Community Center at 4520 California Road. The Family Solutions Center will support district and community families with school-age children by providing direct counseling services to families, hosting parenting classes, and providing resources. The mental health professionals at the Family Solution Center will work with families to promote problem-solving strategies to develop healthy relationships using solution-focused communication. By recognizing the family as the most significant influence in the development of a child, mental health professionals will optimize student success by empowering families. The Family Solutions Center is not a mental health clinic but provides counseling to families to address parenting, school, social/emotional and behavioral issues that interfere with a family's well-being.

    OPMS Students Become FAA certified Recreational Drone Pilots

    Mr. Gill, OPMS Technology Teacher, offered his 8th grade students an opportunity to take the FAA Recreational Drone Pilot exam. Already, approximately 50 middle school students have become FAA certified Recreational Drone Pilots and more students have pledged to take the exam soon! This means that the students have the basic understanding to safely fly their drones for non-commercial purposes. With the immense access to drones that students have outside of school, it is wonderful that so many students will now have the knowledge of how to conduct safe drone flights when they are flying on their own.
