March 3, 2015

On March 10th at 6:00pm the school will host a Town Hall meeting.  Come and hear representatives from San Joaquin Memorial and Fresno High Schools share information about how OLV students do in their programs.  I will give a short presentation on how our students performed on the IOWA test.   Lastly the parent club will share the progress and needs of our final fundraisers- the golf tournament, cash raffle and carnival.  The town Hall meeting begins at 6:00pm and end at 7:30pm and attendance will count for one parent hour.  Please come!

Thanks to the generosity of several school and alumni families- we have already received donations toward the golf tournament.  They have provided the water, fruit and the cost of the trophies.  We are still need:

  • 15 cases of soda
  • 150 small bags of chips
  • 150 cookies
  • Condiment packages of mustard and mayonnaise
  • Five parents or volunteers to run the event
  • Golfers!

Contact the office if your family can donate any of the above items. Also if you are planning to join in the fun please have your registration in by March 13th to make sure you will have a shirt to wear on the tournament day. Go Rebel golfers!

On a final note… there are many in our community who are ill with a variety of aliments.  Please keep your student home if they are ill and have a fever and keep those who are sick in your prayers!  Go in peace and don’t run in the halls!
