The Parent Guild
At OLA, we do our best to raise extra money through various
means in addition to the two mandatory fundraisers.
We do this through catalog and Yankee Candle sales as well in school gift sales
for Mother's and Father's Days.
Box Tops for Education and the Funding Factory are two other
ongoing fundraisers that cost nothing for you to be a part of. It's free money!
Read below to find out more about them.
Help support our school every time you go grocery shopping.
Clip the box tops coupons and send them in with your child to put in their classroom
collection box. The class with the highest total of coupons at the end of the
school year will win a pizza party!
Help the earth by recycling used cell phones and ink and laser jet cartridges.
This is another great opportunity to earn money for our school throughout the
year. Please try to collect these items from friends, family and employers and
send them in with your child to place in the collection box in the school lobby
