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. Contact Gina Groberski for information.
Progressive Dinner – This annual fundraiser is held on a Saturday evening in October. At this 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 your house assignments for the Dinner course that you will be at for 2 hours; and for the Dessert course that you will be at for the remaining 2 hours of the event. Thanks to the generosity of the volunteer hosts and hostesses, all proceeds from this event go to the Olive Mary-Stitt PTA. Contact Jen Ortman or Melissa Teuscher for information.
Shoparoo – Shoparoo is a free app for iOS and Android phones that allows participators to take pictures of their shopping receipts to earn cash donations for Olive-Mary Stitt PTA. It is a very simple, easy to use app and truly is hassle-free fundraising. Just visit the App Store or Google Play to download the Shoparoo App. Please visit this link for more information http://www.shoparoo.com. Contact Liz McDonnell or Becky Hany for 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 Liz McDonnell or Becky Hany for information.
