Home & School would like to thank John Becht, Pat Brennan, Bill Delaney, Brent Gamble, Joe Lance and Dustin Ward for running another great Beef and Beer! The evening was a huge success! Great job, guys! Special thanks to all who were able to join us – we appreciate your support!
Also, thank you to Angela Merkle for your help getting Eagles tickets donated and to Shannon Lawson for getting the signed Eagles jersey and football! Eileen Carpenter won and is looking forward to taking her son to the game! Marie Gaynor sold the winning ticket! Thank you, Marie, and to everyone who helped sell chances– together we made almost $1900.00 on the Eagles chances alone!
We’d also like to thank Mrs. Bush and her third graders for making the “thank you” signs for each table as part of their “Random Acts of Kindness” project! They added a nice touch and received many compliments! Thank you for your hard work!
Finally, we’d like to wish our OLA family a Happy Thanksgiving - thank you for all you do!
A message from BLOCS:
The situation of
the Pennsylvania budget impasse has reached critical status for families
receiving need based scholarships. Governor Wolf has chosen to not release
approval letters for thousands of donors in the Commonwealth even though
legally these credits must be given per the Tax Reform Code. Many companies are
now rethinking their commitments to donate through the Educational Tax Credit
Programs in fear that they will not be able to utilize these credits for their
This means that BLOCS could lose over ten million dollars of scholarship
funding for the 2016 / 2017 school year. Although there is never a guarantee that
you'll receive a scholarship year after year, it would be almost certain that
you would not receive a scholarship next year.
If you have not received a BLOCS scholarship in the past, please know that
BLOCS works diligently all year long to increase funding. The current decision
of the Governor could be a huge blow to our efforts.
We are imploring you to contact the Governor's office and demand he release
these approval letters immediately to secure BLOCS scholarships can continue.
