OLMCA is proud to announce our

13th Annual Race for Education!

Nursery thru Kindergarten: 9:00-9:30am

1st thru 3rd Grades: 9:30-10:15am

4th thru 8th Grades: 10:15-11:15 am

 

This year’s Race is dedicated to upgrading our Technology Lab! We hope to raise $20,000.00 to purchase 25 new laptops, a new JTouch SmartBoard, and new software and apps. With your help, we can make this a reality!

 

Donate here:

 





 

Each student will raise funds by asking sponsors- friends, neighbors and family-to donate a (tax deductible) fixed amount. Please collect pledges from friends and family and turn them in by Monday, May 20!

Students will walk or jog the quarter mile around school as many times as they are able in their grades’ allotted time. They will compete for prizes based upon the number of laps completed.

Please note that this year after the Race for Education we invite everyone to join us for hot dogs and refreshments on Juno Street! All race participants will be receiving a voucher for a hot dog, water, and ice pop! Additional vouchers may be purchased! Also, this year all race participants will be receiving a NUT card!

How the Race Works

In previous years, we mailed flyers via the U.S. Postal Service. This year to save trees, postage and time, we are once again asking parents to e-mail the flyers to their families and friends. We are also providing hard copies. Please inquire in the office if you are in need of additional copies.

Potential sponsors may be family members, relatives, friends and neighbors. Christmas card lists are a great resource for this event. Special emphasis should be placed on out-of-state relatives and friends. Your coworkers may also be a good source of possible sponsors.

We will have paper copies of the flyer available for those friends and family members who do not use  e-mail.

Also new this year, donations may be securely made online at our academy’s website: www.olmercyca.org through Pay Pal. Once you get to our website, you will see it on the Home Page or click on News & Events to donate. Please  remind the  donors  to list  the  student’s  name  under  “Instructions   to Merchant”  when  donating  via  PayPal!  In  this  way,  we can  keep  an  accurate  record  of donations.

Of course, we will gladly accept cash, checks and money orders at the office!

 

Prizes and Incentives

·        Students, return your sponsor list by Monday, April 15 to receive THREE NUT CARDS with a minimum donation of $25.00. Make sure that the student’s name is written on the form.
 
·        Return your sponsor list by Friday, May 3 for TWO NUT CARDS with a minimum donation of $25.00 Make sure that the student’s name is written on it.
 

•         Each class with 100% return (names and funds from all students) will receive a pizza party!

Sports Night is Thursday!

Are you coming to Sports Night this Thursday, April 4?

A reminder that Thursday is our FIRST Sports Night event from 6-8pm. The purpose of this event is to celebrate our students’ physical education advancements by hosting a healthy, exciting competition of relay races, as well as raise funds for the program. Unlike most other events, Sports Night NEEDS the students attendance in order for the games to be fair and complete. We urge you to make arrangements so that your child can attend and compete with their team. Youngest students will compete first, starting with Kindergarten at 6:15pm and ending with 8th grade by 8pm. Students have been assigned to a BLUE or YELLOW team. Winning teams will receive a smoothie party, free dress down day and an opportunity to plan activities during one gym class!
