The 2018 OLMC “Mt. Carmel Fiesta” Festival is right around the corner!  The festival date is Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Each family is required to complete a minimum of six (6) volunteer hours for the festival.  Two of those hours may be completed prior to the festival week and at least four (4) hours must be completed between Monday, April 16 and Sunday, April 22, 2018.

That means all volunteer hours completed between April 16 and festival cleanup on April 22 count toward the festival day requirement.  Students may not fulfill the family volunteer requirement.  However, this is an excellent opportunity for high school students to earn service credit hours.

Please note, preschool ONLY families are required to complete a minimum of four (4) hours for the festival. If families have students in both the preschool and the elementary school, six (6) hours are required.  Please note, per the school contract, if you do not fulfill your required hours you will be charged $100.00 per uncompleted hour ($50.00 per hour for preschool).

We are currently working on the festival signup genius.  Each family was assigned a Family ID. Your Family ID will be included on the festival packets when they are sent home with eldest siblings. This Family ID will be required in order to sign up for your family’s volunteer hours on the festival signup genius. This will help in tracking and reporting all family volunteer hours.  For questions regarding volunteer hours, please email Ashley Hall, Festival Volunteer Coordinator.
