Dear Alumni, Families and Friends of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School,
As the new principal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School – an extraordinary Catholic elementary school – I have been busy getting to know all 301 charming students and our amazing faculty and staff members. Every day I meet parishioners, graduates and family members of students from our school past and present, from all walks of life, and I am so impressed with the love and commitment you all have for Our Lady of Mount Carmel School and Parish, where we educate young people to live with integrity, love like Jesus, and learn with purpose in a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive community.
Today I invite you to make a tax-deductible contribution to Our Lady of Mount Carmel School. Did you know that more than 20% of current students’ families qualify for tuition assistance based on family income? Throughout the years, our Tuition Assistance Program has enabled students from modest income families to attend Mount Carmel, where each child is encouraged to achieve his or her full potential. In fact, many of our recent top graduates and recipients of fully funded high school and college scholarships were able to obtain a foundational Catholic elementary education here with the help of financial aid from the Tuition Assistance Program. I pray that we can again fund at least 35-40% of the identified financial need of our current students, which means raising about $50,000. Any donation that you can contribute will make a positive impact toward achieving this goal.
While Tuition Assistance is our primary focus, you are welcome to designate your gift for any purpose. We rely on donations and fundraising efforts to cover 20% of our operating budget so that we can keep tuition affordable and still provide the best well-rounded, education possible for all students.
You may donate by mail (OLMC School, 301 Grand Street, Redwood City, CA 94062), in person or on-line. On behalf of the students of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, I thank you for your generous support, and will continue to keep you in my prayers.
With my deepest gratitude,
Deborah A. Farrington Ed.D.
