As most OLS families know, we have been raising funds for our new interactive School Library Media Center for the last few months. And, we are absolutely thrilled to say that we are getting very close to our $60,000 goal!
The OLS School Library Media Center will be a top-of-the-line computer lab & library, containing interactive workspaces for OLS students in Pre-K – 8th Grade to build projects, research assignments and more. We believe this media center will allow us to expand on the many STEM-friendly initiatives which the Computer Education and Science departments have been spearheading in recent years, such as roller coaster engineering, computer coding, and so much more. We hope to start construction this summer and open the School Library Media Center to all students in the 2015-16 school year. (2015-16 will also mark the 125th Anniversary of OLS School!)
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the many OLS alumni who have contributed to this campaign. We have also recently received a pledge from an anonymous OLS School parent to ‘match’ up to $10,000 of any future donations. So, with just over a month to go in the school year, we are now only $10,000 away from our fundraising goal of $60,000!
This is an incredible achievement, and now we are asking you to help us get to the finish line. Ten thousand dollars is a sizable number, but if we all do our part, we can make it happen. For example, if every OLS student contributes $50, we will have the $10,000 needed to achieve our fundraising goal. All donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you for your time, and please consider donating what you can today.
