    St. Odilia has set our goal to raise $55,000 through this year’s Marathon. The funds raised help to offset the cost of tuition and pay for many school enhancements. 
    Funds are placed in a specific Marathon account and are invested back into the school, its teacher, and its students. Examples of how some of the funds were used:

    For our school, Marathon funds were used to purchase:
    • Supplies and furniture for our classrooms.
    • Enrichment curriculum materials, a supplemental and adaptable math and language arts curriculum, a specialized reading curriculum for students with dyslexia, a curriculum mapping program to ensure we are meeting and exceeding all standards, and other instructional supplies.  
    • STEM activities, keyboards for iPads and other classroom technologies.
    • Marketing for our school and the online conference scheduler.
    For our teachers, we used Marathon funds for:
    • Professional development in Science and Engineering curriculum.
    • Reimbursements for teachers so they do not need to use their own money for classroom supplies.
    • Staff service projects and staff appreciation days.
    For our kids, Marathon funds were used to:
    • Purchase Gaga Ball Pits for the students to enjoy.
    • Fund our Courage, Kindness, and Leaving a Legacy retreats as well as the Digital Citizenship presenter. 
    • Purchase supplies for our middle school engineering partnership with Totino-Grace, and the onsite. 
    • Fund the ExploraDome exhibit.
    • Fund classroom field trips and service projects.
