Weekly Wrap Up

Posted by Dawn Lorenz on 2/21/2020

Dear OLV Preschool Families,

It's a busy time at OLV Preschool! I hope you are watching our Facebook and Instagram to see all of the wonderful things our students and teachers are up to. This wrap up contains a lot of new/updated information, so please make sure to read all of it. 
Next week we begin open registration. The best gift you can give our school is your referral. If you know someone who is considering preschool for their child, please have them contact us for a tour. Notification of class placements for priority enrolled students will be sent home the week before spring break. 
Box Tops for Education
Keep your eye out for those paper box tops! We can still accept unexpired paper box tops until February 24th! Drop them off to Ms. Gigi.
OLV Preschool Color-a-Thon 5k and Family Fun Run 
To guarantee a shirt, sign up online before March 27, 2020 at http://shop.schoolathon.org/191633. Use group # 121049. When you register your student there is no registration fee due at sign up. Registration as a student lets you customize your own fundraising site to send to friends and family and share on social media if you wish to solicit donations. 
We will offer two events--The Family Fun Run will be only on church property. There will be four color stops to run through, face painting, and soccer shots! For preschool children participating in the Fun Run on church property, there is no need for parents to sign up (and pay for) their participation. We invite all families to come out to this event together. If your child raises over $60 other family members or friends can sign up as part of their "color crew". Color Crew members also receive a t-shirt and color packet. There will also be a 5k. If you plan to run the 5k, however, please sign up separately and pay the registration fee. Because this is a fundraiser, we need everyone's help us raise money for our school. Our goal is $10,000. Because tuition only pays for teachers and the school, we need this money for school supplies, field trips, school wide events, and classroom updates. 
We are grateful for our very generous families, individuals, and businesses that help to support our school!
