20th Annual Autumn Breakfast a Success!

Nearly 800 district supporters gathered on October 6 to hear Superintendent John Allison’s State of the District address and to celebrate the contributions of the Olathe Public Schools Foundation to the success of Olathe students and teachers.
 
Guests at the 20th Annual Autumn Breakfast helped raise more than $180,000 which will directly benefit Olathe students and teachers though Foundation programs, including classroom grants, various need-based funds, and college scholarships.  This year, the Foundation highlighted the role of community collaboration and a key Foundation-supported program, STEM Connection
 
New this year, the Breakfast featured a live, online text-to-give opportunity.  Guests could donate or pledge via their mobile phone and see the overall donation amount grow on-screen in real time.  This new addition to the program raised more than $10,000.
 
Be on the lookout for a Save the Date for next year's Breakfast.  For sponsorship or individual ticket sale information, please contact Katie Beaudin, Development Specialist at 913-780-8203 or kbeaudinnlsc@olatheschools.org.
