While Our Lady of Lourdes school has a multitude of professional teachers dedicated to teaching God's Word through academics, the school itself wouldn't function without the students and parents. That's why volunteering at school is an integral part of your child(ren)'s education. Not only do your child(ren) feel proud to have you at school, but statistics prove that students do better academically with parent involvement.
One of the best ways you can help at school is by helping in your child(ren)'s classroom. Be sure to check with your child(ren)'s teacher(s) to find out how you can help; some teachers may need assistance with reading and flashcards while others could use extra hands changing bulletin boards. The tasks are many, and your help is greatly appreciated.

Shop With SCRIP
OLOL PSA purchases gift certificates or gift cards (scrip) from stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc. at a discount, mostly through Great Lakes Scrip Center (website: www.glscrip.com).· You purchase the certificates from OLOL PSA at face value and use the certificates at the store for face value.· You pay nothing additional and OLOL earns the difference between the discounted price and full price.· The merchants who participate want to support non-profit organizations, and in return ask you to support them by shopping with scrip (gift certificates or gift cards) at their stores.· It is a win-win situation.
Tyson Project A+
Did you know that OLOL is participating in another program similar to Box Tops for Education and Campbell's Labels for Education that requires nothing more than taking a moment to save a label from products you probably already purchase on a regular basis? Sponsored by Tyson Foods, Tyson Project A+™ can help us raise a lot of extra money for our school this year.
All we have to do is clip and save the entire Project A+™ label from participating Tyson products, all of which can be found in your grocer's freezer. Each label we collect is worth 24¢ for our school. Simply send the labels to school with your children and we will send them on their way!
If you would like more information about the Tyson Project A+™ program, visit the Tyson Project A+ Web site.
