After-School Skiing At Grand Geneva
Our after-school skiing program at the Grand Geneva will be on six Mondays from January 8th through February 12th.
The next step is to fill out and return permissions slips—one for each student who will be skiing. Permission slips were sent home this week, and are due back in the school office by Tuesday, October 31st, 2017.
*The skiing form you may have already signed and returned was simply a survey, so we could find out if there was enough interest to book the skiing dates. Everything to follow will be official, necessary forms to fill out and return, in order for your child to ski.*
World’s Finest Chocolate Fundraiser
It’s that time! We will be having our 4th – 8th grade World’s Finest Chocolate fundraiser, so that students can raise money for the 6th grade trip to Camp LuWiSiMo, and the 8th grade class trip. You are not required to participate, but if you do not participate you’ll have to pay for these trips entirely out of pocket. Students make a 50% profit on their sales, which goes into an account they can then draw on to pay for the class trips.
The candy sale will be from Monday, November 6th, 2017 through Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018. Information and order forms went home this week!
The following is a list of field trips coming up in the next few weeks. (You can also view the school calendar for the entire year at: http://orlcs.org/orlcs/school-calendar/.)

Before you can drive for a field trip (or volunteer in our school in any way), you must complete a background check through Protect My Ministry. There is a $9 fee to complete the check, and it is good for three years. Go to:
Please consider volunteering to drive for a field trip—many of our field trips could not happen without volunteer drivers!
