a message from your parent council

OLA's Parent's Council organizes different events and initiatives through various fundraising efforts during the school year. We've been working hard behind the scenes to fundraise for multiple projects and activities, including the outdoor classroom, Halloween Dance, Valentine's Day door decorating and much more. Stay tuned for some exciting activities in the next few months, including a Spring Dance and the annual Readathon. The ever-popular Break the Rules will be back to dominate the classroom once again this spring. More info to follow soon!

If you have any ideas or event suggestions, please email the Parents Council at schoolcouncil.ola@gmail.com.

We hope to see you at our next meeting on Thursday,
