SAVE THE DATE!!! Drive-In Movie Night at the Ventura Fairgrounds!!!

Start your holiday season off with a showing of the movie "Elf" starring Will Ferrell


Tuesday, Nov.10th at 6:30 pm (gates open at 5:30 pm)

OLA School is holding a School Fundraiser on the evening of November 10th (note that there is no school the next day, Wednesday, Nov. 11th, as it is Veteran's Day). The cost is $50.00 per vehicle and you can fill your car with as many people as you have seat belts!

Order forms will be coming home soon. PLEASE purchase your tickets through the OLA school office as we will have a special parking section in the fairgrounds parking lot and this is a fundraiser for our school. There will be a short period in which to purchase tickets so please purchase as quickly as you are able - we need to let the fairgrounds know how many spots to reserve for OLA families. Passengers will need to stay with the car in which they came due to Covid safety regulations. 

We are hard at work trying to set up a dinner fundraiser for the same day so you would be able to purchase your dinner and bring it with you to the fairgrounds for a fun and relaxed family evening, all helping to raise much-needed funds for our school! Please see the school website for more information about the movie night. We look forward to seeing many of our families at this fun event!
