In an effort to make sure every student has O-E Blue and Gold for our "Blue and Gold" Fridays, Ovid-Elsie clothing is being collected to pass out to students who do not have O-E clothing. Please dig through your closets and look for clothing that is gently used and does not have names that you are willing to donate to the cause. Please drop off to Dana Blank at 2130 N. Hollister Rd. (there will be a bin there) or drop off at Ovid-Elsie High School in care of Ms. Blank. She will help distribute these items so ALL kids come to school dressed in Blue and Gold EVERY Friday! Go Marauders!
