Next Wednesday October 31st is our annual Dance-a-Thon. This is a fun event and our only fundraiser. Money raised from the dance will be used to pay for field trips, special guests and other educational events for the students. We ask that each child bring in a minimum of  5 dollars. Families with more than 2 children attending Our Lady of Mount Carmel are asked to bring a family rate of 10 dollars. The more money you bring in the better your chances of winning one of many amazing prizes.

There will also be a cake raffle with tickets for 25 cents each or 5 for a dollar. Snacks will also be sold so be sure to send in some extra money for a special treat at the dance. Students are allowed to wear costumes to school but we ask that any accessories, toy weapons, or masks be left at home, although a costume is not a requirement to participate in the event.
