School Improvement Drive
The OLG School Improvement Drive looks at our school and highlights projects that we, as a community, can tackle with a shared effort for the benefit of our children. Families who participate in our School Improvement Drive will be honored annually on the Our Lady of Grace School Giving Tree. The Giving Tree, which graces the entry way to our school courtyard, is a visual reminder of the power of grateful giving – from the little or abundance we have. Gifts will be acknowledged on the Giving Tree in four colored leaves. Gifts or commitments received after November 15, 2019, will NOT be acknowledged with a leaf.
Donations to our 2019-2020 School Improvement Drive can be easily made through your school FACTS account or using our online form.

School Improvement Drive Update
We would first like to thank all those families and friends who supported last year’s SID. Thanks to your generous donations, we raised over $96,000 that went towards the renovation of the new Lions’ Lair library space in the east wing and toward the purchase of all new classroom furniture for grades 1 - 5. As we look upon the opening of the 2019 – 2020 school year, we would like to continue with classroom renovations in the middle school, particularly rooms 6, 7, 8, and the computer lab. The SID work for the 2019-2020 school year will happen in two phases. Phase 1 will focus on the purchase of new furniture for those four classrooms plus room 9 for an estimated total of $50,000. This will include new student desks and/or chairs, new teacher desks and podiums, and matching accessories for each classroom. Phase 2 will happen over the summer of 2020 and will include the complete renovation of rooms 6, 7, 8, and the computer lab with new paint, flooring, and new cabinetry. The budget for phase 2 is $50,000, bringing the total SID goal to $100,000 for 2019-2020!
