Principal's Letter
Dear OLG Families,

As we move ahead with returning more students to in-person learning then our Catholic Schools Week is getting even more exciting than normal! This Friday (1/22) our staff is coordinating and working through many of the complexities of providing the best hybrid instruction (meeting both in-person and remote learning needs). Thursday, Jan 28th & Friday, Jan 29th the 1st thru 5th grade teachers are specifically working on the curriculum, packets, communications, desk setups, and more to be prepared for students to return in the classroom. Please let us know if your are staying remote so teachers can plan for the hybrid needs in their classroom. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this time of transition.

Special volunteer opportunity is available Thursday (1/28) afternoon for some physical prep of our spaces (signup here). Also, attending the Fulcrum Celebration (Free event) on Friday the 29th is another way you can support the many great things happening in our school and beyond. There are also parish volunteer events listed below!

There is so much to celebrate and get excited about! Read on below, and also keep an eye out for the separate detailed auction emails.
Yours in Christ,

Anton Kramer

2021 Annual OLG Auction- Registration is OPEN!

It's time to register for "An Evening at Sea with OLG" and we couldn't be more excited! Don't wait to register – our two Silent Auctions open on Feb. 22 and this year's Live event kicks off on March 6 at 7 p.m. sharp. We encourage you to make a night of it via our Red Carpet Zoom event and fun food and drink add-ons from Cure Cocktail!

Introducing Cure Cocktail
When you upgrade your Auction tickets this year, you're not only supporting OLG, you're supporting Cure Cocktail! Cure has been a Seattle staple for more than 10 years. A message from Cure: "With the closure of hundreds of Seattle restaurants, we want to inspire the small-business community by staying strong in times of hardship. Every purchase you make today and during the next few weeks will define the future of small businesses, from our family to yours."

Featured Auction Item: Two nights at the Coeur d’Alene Resort
Three words: lakeside infinity pool. The Coeur d’Alene Resort is located in northern Idaho on the north shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene, acclaimed by National Geographic as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. And the resort's famous golf course has the world’s only floating green. A FLOATING GREEN, folks. But that pool, though…

Fund-a-Need

Old fixtures that don't work, doors that don't lock, dented metal stalls, bubblegum pink/baby blue walls – sound familiar?  We have the opportunity through this year's Auction Fund-a-Need to update the bathrooms our children use every day. The more we raise, the more we can do – imagine being able to surprise our kids in the fall with bright, modern bathrooms on every floor (and fully-locking stalls). Make your Fund-a-Need donation here!
