Book Fair – Held in the spring, book fair is a great way to update your personal library, or help support libraries of the OMS teachers. Contact Nicole Arguelles or Melanie Varrato for information.

Box Tops/Labels for Education – We collect eligible box tops and labels for education in order to raise funds for the PTA and purchase merchandise for the school. We run two class by class challenges each year (October and February). The classes with the highest point total get to select a prize or reward for their class. A number of volunteers trim, sort and count the box tops and labels and we submit them for cash and points. 

Just Jump! Jump-a-thon– Contact Joy Chaplin or Michael Thompson.

House Hop – This annual fundraiser is held on a Saturday evening in the fall. At the event you will enjoy food and drinks at the homes of fellow OMS parents. It’s a great opportunity to meet new OMS families and reconnect with the people you already know. On the evening of the event, you will receive house assignments which includes a rotation between two houses for two hours each.  Thanks to the generosity of the volunteer house hosts, all proceeds from this event go to the Olive-Mary Stitt PTA. Contact Kevin Allender for more information.

Spirit Wear – Every fall our PTA sells Olive spirit wear. The sale begins the first week of school, ending a few weeks later. There are a variety of items for sale, from sweatshirts to t-shirts to pants, all with an Olive school logo on them. Each year new items are chosen to keep your spirit wear new and up to date. The sale is online only but samples are on display at Olive for help with sizing. Contact Joy Chaplin or Michael Thompson for information.

Trivia Night – We are still looking for Committee Chairs to help make this fun and fantastic fundraiser happen!  Please contact if you are interested!
