Aldersgate UMC is forming a new partnership with the Olathe Public Schools, check out ways to support them throughout the year!
Summer Reading Programs
We are collecting books for two different groups:
Olathe School District Summer Reading Program provides enrichment or children ages 5-11.
Reach Out and Read Kansas City provides books for children, birth through age 5, in low-income families.
Back to School Outreach
We are collecting gift cards for students returning to school in the fall. Please contact the office for more information.
For several years, Aldersgate has looked for ways to support Westview Elementary, a 60-year-old Title 1 school with a diverse student population.
We’ve enabled students to take special field trips, provided Christmas gifts for Westview students and their families and baked homemade cookies and provided a soup and salad meal in appreciation of Westview teachers.
Ways to Help:
- There will be ways to help as we get closer to the school year
Please check back here to find out about other ways Aldersgate is reaching out to Westview students and staff.
The Great Plains United Methodist Conference encourages churches to find ways to work with local schools.
