Principal’s Corner

Dr. SheridanDear Parents,

The thermometer hit 100° this past week.  That tells us many things, one of which is that we are in May.  At OLMC this is one of the busiest months of the school year.

The eighth graders began their march to graduation on Friday with our traditional May Crowning Mass.  (It was as beautiful as ever.)  From now on, it’s final exams, a last trip, a retreat and graduation.  It will go by in a blink.

We will celebrate you parents next Friday.  We call it the Volunteer Luncheon.  It includes most parents because you are so generous with your time and talents.  Please RSVP Monday or Tuesday so that we have enough food.

The third graders will have their special time in May as well.  On May 25 they will celebrate the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation.  They have been preparing for this day for quite a while and are eager to advance in their faith.

The kindergarteners may be our most patriotic class.  On the evening of May 15, they will entertain the audience with their annual presentation of “Stars and Stripes.”  If you haven’t seen it, you might want to.  If you have seen it, it might bring back fond memories.

Of course, in a school dedicated to the Blessed Mother we cannot forget that this is her month.  Starting on Monday and continuing until the end of May, we will gather as a school in the prayer garden after the first bell.  There the fifth graders will lead us in the rosary.  You are cordially invited to join us to begin your day in prayer.

May promises to be busy; However, we shall enjoy ourselves within all the busyness.
