Dear Parents & Students of OCMS,
The Oconee County Middle School Parent Teacher Organization (OCMS PTO) provides support to our school in many ways. Each year, the PTO, with the assistance of faculty and staff, identifies where we can provide money to assist and impact our students and staff the most. Last year taught us many things, and one of the most important lessons was the value of outdoor spaces.
Our GOAL for this year is to build new OUTDOOR CLASSROOM SPACE - including benches and tables, canopies and landscaping.
In the past, we have raised money by selling discount cards or coupon books. This year, we would like to shift our efforts in another direction. We believe that seeking direct donations for the benefit of our school, instead of selling something, will enable us to keep 100% of the income we earn! We have seen our elementary schools use this method very successfully. The more successful we are now, the less we’ll have to fundraise later! We’d love to see this be our ONLY fundraiser this year!!!
We are excited to have a great impact on our student’s educational experience at OCMS! Our 2021 Fundraising goal is to collect at least $20,000. Please review the attached OCMS PTO “No Sell Fundraiser” Flyer for goals, instructions, suggestions and student incentives.
Donations will be accepted July 31st through August 20th. We are grateful for your support and hope that you will join us this year in helping our school!
