HOME & SCHOOL & READING COUNTS MEETINGS THIS WEEK: Please come to the Reading Counts meeting this Tuesday at 5:30 to help plan the end of year activities for Reading Counts.

Find out what’s happening at our great little school, find your child’s Christmas program costume, and earn a bonus dress down pass for your child as well!

GERBES COMMUNITY REWARDS: OLOSS received this quarter’s disbursement of community funding - $66.13.
SIGN UP FOR GERBES COMMUNITY REWARDS: OLOS is enrolled in the Gerbes “Community Rewards” program. This program offers money back to our school, based on enrolled customer’s spending. It is a really easy process. You just tie your Gerbes shopper’s card to our school account. If you don’t have a Gerbes shopper’s card, it takes less than a minute to get one at the store and also online. All the information needed to complete this process is online. @ www.gerbes.com/communityrewards. Our school code is 48253. It takes just a couple minutes so get all your family and friends to register as well! The school will receive quarterly payments in cash form. We will update you as we receive those funds. This has the potential to be a huge moneymaker for the school – the key is to get many, many people involved. Please pass the word to family and friends and thanks for supporting OLOS School!!!

PROPANE THAT PAYS… This is the time of year when many people like to fill propane tanks or prepay. If you are or would like to be a customer of Capital Energy Co, please LET THEM KNOW that you are a member of OLOS parish (They cannot issue a donation on the customer’s behalf unless the customer tells them they are a member of the parish.) The parish receives a percentage for every gallon the customer buys. Last year the parish received funds of approximately $850. That’s worthwhile! Thank you for your support!
PLEASE RETURN YOUR FOLDER ON TUESDAY.
Enjoy your three-day weekend, students!
