OLGC Families,

If you have a desire to be involved with the PTO, please join us at the next board meeting on Tuesday, February 2 at 8:30 AM.  This is easily one of the best ways to meet with Mrs. Jewett, members of the faculty, and parents within our community to discuss new ideas or developments before the broader community.  There are many other benefits with PTO participation and we welcome your ideas on how we can support the needs of our school.  Please contact me if you are interested.

Karen An, PTO President

SCHOOL ACTIVITIES:

  • NEW The Wildcat Fund Steering Committee invites you to save the date as we UNMASK OUR POTENTIAL during this year’s Wildcat Fund Day of Giving on February 10-11, 2021. For 48 hours, we will celebrate our community and all that we have the potential to be as we aim to raise $50,000. This year, Kearney & Company will serve as our Day of Giving Corporate Sponsor; they will generously match the first $50,000 raised to be used towards curriculum enrichment at OLGC that will allow teachers and staff to unmask the potential of the curriculum and transform what it means to LEARN at OLGC. To make a gift to The Wildcat Fund, please visit www.olgcschool.org/wildcatfund; contact Alison McKee with any questions.
  • Used Uniform Collection: The PTO is collecting used uniforms. Please consider dropping off gently used uniforms and spirit wear, in the bin located at the entrance of the building. The next used uniform sale date is TBD. If you have an immediate need, please email Raelene Sok.
  • PTO has some gift cards in stock for purchase.  Please stop by the Parish Admin office to purchase with cash or checks made payable to OLGC PTO.
