November 21 to December 13
OLMS is supporting a coat drive sponsored by footprints foundation.
The winter chill is here and your used coat and winter goods can make a difference in a child's life today! Please help by donating your child's gently used winter coats, hats, gloves and boots to a child in need.
Just look for the drop off container in the front lobby at OLMS. All donations will be taken to COTS Detroit and the Detroit Rescue Mission where they will be used to keep a child warm this winter.

Support Our Schools
Dear Friends of the West Bloomfield School District:
Thank you very much for your support of the West Bloomfield Educational Foundation (WBEF) for the past 10 years. The WBEF was established in 2002 in response to inadequate school funding from the State of Michigan. Your generosity over these years has allowed the district to purchase textbooks, teaching supplies, instruments and many useful technology tools as well as fund an anti-bullying campaign and the FIRST Robotics Program at West Bloomfield High School. In addition, over $150,000 in grants have been awarded to classroom teachers for innovative projects that support student achievement.
Last year, the SOS Campaign combined with a number of family-oriented events raised over $30,000. Our goal for this year is to surpass last year’s level and provide even greater support for academics, the arts and athletics. We cannot do this without you! Donate today! Our children are counting on your continued support. Please choose one of the following ways to donate:
· A DOLLAR A DAY EACH SCHOOL-AGE CHILD IN YOUR FAMILY
· A DOLLAR A DAY FOR ONE YEAR FROM YOUR HOUSEHOLD or
· A GENEROUS ONE TIME DONATION
Several family-oriented and creative fundraising events are again being planned. The 2nd Annual Festival of Music, $10 for 10K Raffle, and Night of Laughs are all in the works. Committees are also being formed. We welcome and encourage parents and community members to serve on any of these committees. All of our fundraising efforts focus on maintaining the outstanding quality of education in the West Bloomfield School District. Watch for additional information on these events in the weeks ahead.
On behalf of the West Bloomfield Educational Foundation and our 6,000 West Bloomfield students, we thank you. You are making a significant difference in the lives of these students. Please continue to support them.
You can make your donation today on-line at www.wbef.org , call 248-865-6463 or fill out the attached pledge form.
