The Spring Fling is OLM’s biggest social event and fundraising initiative of the year. The funds earned each year at the school’s Spring Fling play a critical role in the school’s ability to continue to provide enriching activities that enhance a student’s educational experience. Programs like band, robotics, drama, and mock trial, to name just a few, are possible because of the heartwarming generosity of our families and local businesses. Proceeds from this fundraising campaign also help fund the advancements in our technology department, which allow our teachers to incorporate the latest technology-based educational strategies into their classroom curriculums.

The Art and Science Funds in Need 2015
If you are not attending the Spring Fling and would like to participate, our Fund In Need initiative is a great way to contribute to the success of our biggest fundraiser of the year. Consider a direct donation into either the Science and Technology Fund or the Art Fund. Your generosity is what allows the PTG to continue to help offset the expense associated with many of the activities our children benefit from on a daily basis.
Kites for Kids 2016
Kites for Kids, a highly successful fundraising campaign at OLM, helps to get our “season of giving” off of the ground. Please join the PTG in supporting this meaningful cause by making a tax deductible donation on behalf of your family or business.
Enjoy the opportunity to mingle with other OLM parents and faculty at this year’s Spring Fling on Friday, April 1st at 6 p.m at Quidnessett Country Club. The evening begins with a cocktail hour, hors d’oerves and a fabulous silent auction that will feature some new and exciting items, and the return of the cherished Art Masters projects produced by each class. Partygoers will want to watch those bid sheets closely while socializing with friends!
Immediately following the closing of the silent auction, a sit-down dinner will be served, followed by dessert and coffee. Then the excitement truly begins with our Live Auction. Auctioneer Jack Martone and Master of Ceremony Gene Valicenti keep the energy high and the bids even higher as parents vie for items like golf packages, Red Sox tickets and OLM favorites like Front Row at the Christmas Pageant.
The night continues with dancing to the tunes of the Boston Premiere Band. Guests are invited to join Father Healey & Father Connors outdoors on the patio for our first “Father’s Cigar Emporium”. Whether you are new to the school or have been to too many Spring Flings to count, we welcome you and look forward to seeing you there to support our wonderful school!
