Dear OLMC Community,hermie

This week we will host our Kindergarten-6th Grade Curriculum Night from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. The night will begin in the Church prior to moving to the classrooms. Please be reminded that this event is for parents only.

This Monday, August 21st, there will be a solar eclipse that takes place during the school day.  I would ask that you speak with your student(s) about the eclipse and reinforce for them the fact they should not, at any time, look directly into the sun. A RenWeb blast was sent to all families on Friday regarding the school’s plan for student safety during the eclipse.

Please mark your calendars for August 26th when the Dad’s Club hosts the annual Back to School Cookout. The event is free and all OLMC families are invited to come and enjoy food and fellowship.

Any parents who are interested in volunteering at the school must be Safe Environment Certified through the Diocese of Phoenix. The foundation course for those who have never been certified will be offered at OLMC on August 26th from 9 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. If you would like to register for the class, please follow the link below or contact James Salas in the Parish office.  All parents who have taken the foundation course must update their training with a video each year. The update video can also be found using the link below.

Dear OLMC Community,hermie

I want to thank our faculty, students and parents for a fantastic first week of the school year. It has been wonderful to have the students back on campus, interacting with their friends, and working hard in the classrooms.

I would like to thank our Home and School Board for hosting the first Coffree of the year. We hope to see more and more parents join us as the year goes on.

Please be reminded that we will celebrate our all school mass on Tuesday of this week due to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. All students should be in mass dress on Tuesday.

I would ask that parents pick their students up from the parking lot behind school. There is no supervision at the front of the church and students will not be permitted to walk to Rural Road without their parents to accompany them. Also, please make sure to enter campus via the entrance on the south side of the Parish office. The driveway on the north side of the office is for exiting vehicles only.

We look forward to seeing Junior High parents this coming Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. for Junior High Back to School Night. The evening will start off in the church and then move to the classrooms. This event is for parents only.  The Kindergaten-6th Grades Curriculum Night is scheduled for August 23rd.

Sincerely,

Bruce Hermie

Dear OLMC Families,

hermieOn Monday we will welcome all families back to campus for Orientation and Kindergarten-Sixth Grades Meet the Teacher. All families need to attend orientation to fill out forms, learn who their teacher will be for the upcoming year, and drop off supplies to classrooms. Please remember that all students must be accompanied by their parents as teachers will be unable to supervise them during this time. School will begin at 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday. Please remember that we will celebrate the beginning of the school year mass on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. and all students must come in mass dress. As always, parents are welcome to attend our all school masses.

I want to make all parents aware that construction on Rural Road near campus is ongoing. Please budget additional time to ensure you are arriving on time.

The faculty and staff have been hard at work preparing to welcome the students. We look forward to an outstanding 2017-2018 school year. I ask that you pray for our students, teachers and the OLMC community at large as the school year gets underway.

Sincerely,

Bruce Hermie
