Nearly 800 Olathe School District supporters came together Friday, November 2 to support the Olathe Public Schools Foundation at the Annual Autumn Breakfast. Breakfast attendees were entertained by Olathe South High School band students and the Madison Place Elementary Special Chorus. Superintendent John Allison presented the State of the District Address.
Breakfast sponsors and attendees helped raise close to $200,000 to support Olathe students and teachers. Of that total, $30,000 was donated to the Azalia Morales Career and Technical Education Fund established in honor of recent Olathe Advanced Technical Center (OATC) graduate Azalia Morales. Learn more about Azalia.
The Foundation partnered with Olathe Health to present the breakfast and to help fund classroom grants and student mental health and wellness programs with the proceeds.
Special thanks to Investing Sponsors Mainstreet Credit Union and Major Saver Holdings, Inc. for their support of the 21st Annual Autumn Breakfast, helping ensure that every dollar raised will go directly into classroom grants and special programming for students.
