Thank You!

What a great time we all had at the Back to School Bash this last Sunday! We want to thank everyone who was there - guest, volunteers, vendors, staff, etc. - it was because of you that we had a hugely successful day! We look forward to seeing more of you in the future. There's a lot coming up in the Bithlo Transformation process and now is a time that WE NEED VOLUNTEERS - here are some of the details.

                      What's Going On In Bithlo

Front Page of the Orlando Sentinel August 4, 2013

  1. Check out our most recent FRONT PAGE article in Orlando Sentinel by Kate Santich "Florida Hospital, UCF join to transform Bithlo"!

  2. We've fixed the PayPal link issue from the last newsletter for anyone who was trying to donate and couldn't. All DONATE links now work! Thank you for your patience. Orange County Academy will be opening for school August 19 with the addition of 4 new classrooms, a new septic system and a renovated multi-purpose building that will now comfortably hold our 70+ students for lunch. If you have the OPPORTUNITY TO VOLUNTEER please contact Lizi at - our amazing teachers and staff are working very hard to finish preparing the school for opening and could use the help this weekend (Aug. 16-18)!

  3. Parent Orientation (Parent Only Event) is happening this Sunday, Aug. 18 at 6:30pm at Orange County Academy for parents to spend time with our teachers and get to know what's coming up this school year for their children.

  4. Our Back to School Bash was a phenomenal success! Details coming soon! 

  5. We are still working hard to get the DONATIONS we need to finish up school renovations - we can use all the help we can get so please spread the word! Your investment can go towards finishing the installation of our new septic tank which will allow OCA to enroll EVEN MORE students and therefore TRANSFORM MORE LIVES!
