Because any day of the school year is a great day for a special event and to support OLG!
In addition to raising funds to support our school, there are many benefits of fundraising through events. Students gain valuable leadership skills and confidence as many of these events require students to work with each other, as well as their parents and teachers in order to meet their overall goal, and this teaches them teamwork. Students are also taught the importance of community, creativity, caring about others, and improving the common environment. Fundraising also allows parents to get involved and play a more active role in their children’s lives.
The true sense of community, overall warmth and camaraderie that everyone participating in an OLG event gets to experience, is one of the aspects that makes the OLG community so special and unique.
