Hello OLR families,
Is it really the last full week of October? Time really flies when things are going great, and this year is no exception! A huge thank you to all the families who have returned their Fun Run donation envelopes by last Friday’s due date…it’s amazing to see the donation chart sitting just shy of the $20,000 mark already! If you haven’t turned yours in yet, we’d love to get your support to try and get to our goal of $30,000.
Hopefully everyone is planning to come out this Friday for the annual Trunk or Treat event. Please remember that the festivities begin at 5 and go until 7:30, and that the event is for Our Lady of Refuge families only. The weather looks to be dry as of now, which will be much more fun for everyone if it stays that way!
Lastly, this Friday will also be our October Mission Jean Day. Kindergarten and First Grade chose to have our donations go to The Coffee Bucket. The Coffee Bucket is a coffee shop affiliated with the non-profit organization DRAW (Disaster Relief at Work) which provides relief services to communities affected by natural disasters. Your $1 donation to wear jeans on this day will help them buy supplies that are short on or help provide travel cost for the volunteers who travel to disaster sites and help with the recovery process. Together, we can make a difference!
