You can donate online or mail a check made out to "School Annual Fund," 23 W. Prospect Ave., Moorestown NJ 08057. Checks can be sent via backpack to Principal Chiarelli. Please include your email and home address so we can thank you! Please share our link on your social media so we can spread the word quickly! We've already raised more than $5,300! We want to have the equipment in place for Christmas so DONATE NOW!


Please note that after our 3:00 pm dismissal, all car/walker students are under parent's supervision.  Any child left without a parent pickup is to report back into the building.  These students will report to Aftercare, and the normal fees will apply.  Any student that remains in the parking lot must be under parent supervision.  The school will not be held liable for students unattended.
Students/Parents must use the CROSSWALK.  We were notified that students/parents are crossing in the middle of the streets, and must be using the designated crosswalks.

Please Join the PTA Board in Giving to Families in Need this Christmas Season. What​ ​is​ ​needed​: Target, Supermarket or other department/visa gift cards, any denomination. How​ ​to​ ​give​: Send cash​ or gift cards by Dec. 8 to Christine​ ​Dash​ ​c/o​ ​Gabrielle​ ​8B *reference​ ​PTA​ ​Gift​ ​Drive​.


Save the date for our annual Nativity Play, to be held on Dec. 18 at 1:15 pm in the gym. In addition to the relatives of those performing, we are inviting families with young children to attend so they can enjoy the show and see what OLGC is all about! Spread the word and warm some hearts!


Three of our very own 8th graders (James, Dylan, and Gabe) are hosting a gently used Shoe Drive to help provide much needed medical supplies, surgeries, and food for cats and kittens.  Any type of shoe can be donated (sneakers, boots, etc.)  Drop-off points will be in the Main Office, Gym, and Cafeteria. The Barrington TNR can provide further information:

Please spread the word about our biggest fall fund-raiser via social media! Buy your tickets now! Raffling off a full tuition and half tuition. You can get tickets online or through the backpack. You do NOT need to be present to win. Click on GO FOR THE GOLD for all the information.

We are collecting names and email addresses of all OLGC Alumni so we can invite them to join us for a special Christmas festivity and also our annual Alumni Mass. Please visit our Alumni Page on our website and take 5 seconds to give us your current email address. We miss you!


AS A REMINDER:  In an ongoing effort to keep your children safe, please be advised that your child is not permitted to wait by the school entrance doors before 8:05; there is no supervision before this time. Please note temperature drops with winter coming and other weather concerns. Names of students waiting outside prior to 8:05 will be taken and parents will receive warnings.

What a busy week for the PTA!
