 Halloween Grams are BACK!

To celebrate the season and the upcoming OLG Halloween Carnival, we’ll be selling Halloween Grams before and after school outside, anytime in the front office, and in the cafeteria during lunch on select days for one week between Monday, Oct. 15 and Monday, Oct. 22. For $1 (cash), you can write your children (or your children can send their friends) a sweet or festive message. The card and a Halloween surprise will be delivered to recipients during school hours on Wednesday, Oct. 24!


Beers & Brats: Oct. 20th, 2-5 pm
On Saturday, Oct. 20th, parent volunteers from the first-grade class will be grilling up dogs, pouring frothy brews, and welcoming both veteran parents and those brand new back to school for another great year at OLG. More details to come, but word is this Octoberfest-themed party will include polka music, mini-pumpkin carving, a cornhole tourney, and a not-so-quiet place to fill out Halloween Grams!  E-mail hilary.j.reeves@gmail.com.
B&B tickets available online through Oct. 19th at 5 pm

OLG Halloween Carnival: Oct 27th, 4-7 pm 
Come back the following Saturday for the annual OLG Halloween Carnival on Oct. 27th, at 4 p.m. Get excited for all your favorites: inflatables, professional face painting, live DJ, all your favorite games, and a bigger and better Trunk or Treat! New this year are an indoor dunk tank (which teachers might take a turn in the tank?)

2019 Masquerade Ball Auction
Saturday, March 2nd, 2019
Walmesley Center
We’ve had many questions regarding Family Procurement Requirements!
Each OLG Family is required to contribute to the annual Auction, either in a $200 cash/check/Amazon SCRIP contribution, or in item(s) valued at no less than $200 by Nov. 30th, 2018. (Early Bird Deadline is Nov. 16th!)
The OLG auction enables our teachers to access resources that enhance creative lessons and develop leadership in our children. As a core fundraiser for the school, our auction enables the fabulous service opportunities and faith development that our community is known for.

 

Next Auction Team Meeting: Nov. 13th @ 7pm – Please join us if you’re interested in helping, and we’ll put you on a team! Or email olg.auction.chair@gmail.com for more details.

 

Auction Volunteer Roles (still available):
  • Sponsorship Coordinator – Role includes communicating with past sponsors; Identifying and engaging with new potential sponsors; detailing benefits; collecting sponsorship donations; and gathering logos/art/promotional items.
  • Bank Chair ‘Night of Auction’ – Processing transactions the night of the Auction; Learning to run Maestro (via tutorials), delegating to volunteers additional check in/check out table duties. Filling this role will save the school $1000 that will be a direct benefit!
