Okemos Education Foundation

Recognizing excellence and promoting innovation in Okemos Public Schools

Okemos Golf Fundraiser 2025

We invite you to join us on May 31, 2025 for a fun event supporting Okemos students and staff.

OEF Awards

The Okemos Education Foundation recognizes excellence in the Okemos Public School District in two ways: our formal awards, given at the annual banquet each November, and the OEF APPLE Awards, informal awards given at any time of the year.

Annual Awards Banquet

Each November we celebrate excellence in our district with a formal awards dinner. Learn More

APPLE Awards

APPLE Awards can be given by anyone, at any time of the year, to any Okemos employee who deserves special recognition. Learn More.

OEF Programs

Grant Programs

The OEF funds approximately 30 curriculum-based grants each year. Requests are received from Okemos teachers in every building and vary each year, based on the innovative ideas and needs of our staff. Learn more about the great things the OEF has funded in the past.

4th Grade Seeds of Science Field Trips

Every 4th grade class enjoys three separate field trips to the MSU Plant Biology building, learning about plant life through a variety of hands-on experiences. Learn more about the program.

Elementary Author Visit

The OEF partners with Horizon Bank each spring to bring an author to each of our elementary schools to meet with students and share how their own stories became published books.

Science Fairs

The OEF offers funding for school science fairs to allow our students to have hands-on science experiences and to showcase their own individual projects. Learn more.
