Read-a-thon

We held our first Read-a-thon in 2015 and it has quickly become a favorite fundraiser for the year.
This fundraiser helps to foster and encourage a love of reading for our students. Supporting our young readers is simple. All sponsorships are completed online.

Great American Spellcheck

Since 2017, we incorporated our participation in the Scripps Regional Spelling Bee competition into a fundraiser.  We hold classroom spelling bees and a school spelling bee and the top winner goes onto regionals... (nationals in Washington D.C. is after that for the winner of regionals.
 
In preparation for the Spelling Bee our 1st-8th graders participate in the Great American SpellCheck!  Students learn 50 spelling words and gather pledges for each word spelled correctly.  Help us raise money and cheer on our young spellers by pledging toward a student, a class, or a flat school donation.

Pledges can be in the amount of 25 or 50 cents, or $1.00 or $2.00 per word (x 50) or a flat donation.
 
The Great American SpellCheck will take place in January into February.

Walk-a-thon

Started in 2002, our annual Walk-a-thon is always a highly anticipated family event for the OMGC Community. In 2011, we began pairing our students with their "School Buddies" to venture out into Los Feliz Village. In 2020, we hosted a virtual and interactive Walk-a-thon that streamed live online.

UNFULFILLED FUNDRAISING
  1. Parents are billed for any unfulfilled fundraising obligations.
  2. Grades and diplomas may be held if all financial obligations are not cleared.
  3. The school may also deny 8th grade students of privileges and graduation in cases where financial obligations are not met.
The school is grateful to all parents who take their financial obligations seriously and meet them in a timely manner. Fundraising is part of the family commitment, as tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a student.  It is imperative that parents who are unable to fulfill these obligations for any reason contact the principal at (323) 664-2131 immediately to discuss the matter.


Optional FUNDRAISERS
Help support our school by ordering items from the pre-sale Catalog Fundraisers (Fall - Christmas gifts and wrap & Spring - Easter See's Candy).  These are optional ways to earn service hours, fundraise for the school, and do some holiday shopping!
