Recognizing excellence and promoting innovation in Okemos Public Schools
Okemos Golf Fundraiser 2023
We had a great day on Saturday, June 3, 2023 at College Fields Golf Club for a fun event supporting Okemos students and staff.
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.
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.
