Ways Home & School has used FFT Profit:

  1. Computers and technology enhancements for the staff and students
  2. All school field trips and cultural arts
  3. Supplies to the nurse’s office
  4. Sacraments
  5. Educational expenses
  6. Art Masterpiece Program
  7. New playground equipment for kindergarten and 1st grade
  8. Chairs, desks, and classroom supplies
  9. Music department instructional materials
  10. Physical Education/Athletic equipment
  11. Library books and supplies
  12. Campus improvements
  13. School communications
  14. Events
    (i.e. the Christmas Program, STEM day, Catholic Schools Week, Parish Festival, Field Day, Coffrees, etc.)
  15. Scholarships/tuition rebates
  16. Preschool expenses
  17. Extracurriculars
  18. Refreshments for various school functions
  19. Staff and volunteer functions
  20. So much more!

The income from the FFT program allows OLMC to do things for our students and the campus without the hassle of fundraising (i.e. selling magazines, wrapping paper, and candy bars).  Most importantly, the FFT income helps keep our tuition from increasing dramatically. See last year’s totals>>
