Fall Fundraiser Kick off! Charleston Wrap & Gifts
It’s ba-ack! Once again we have partnered with Charleston Wrap for our fall fundraising campaign this year. There are over 500 high quality items to choose from, and every purchase you make earns between 30-40% in much needed money for our school. Simply order from the catalog being sent home with your child, or visit the Charleston Wrap website to shop.  Watch the newsletter and the FUNDRAISING link for upcoming information!

Don’t have your student code yet?  Want to track your students online sale progress?  Use this link to get your student code, invite others to shop online, and track your sales progress!  Our goal is to raise at least $12,000 towards our $125,000 annual campaign. The sales end on October 2nd. Thank you for your commitment to OLG school!

 

OLG Spirit Wear
OLG Spirit Wear Order Forms 2017-18 are due Friday September 22nd by the end of the school day. There will be about a 2-3 week turn-around time for delivery.  Get those orders in so your student can wear OLG gear on OLG Spirit Wear Day (Thursday, October 5th).  See the School Calendar for scheduled Spirit Wear Days. You can also wear the gear to cheer on your OLG team during fall sports!
