There’s so much happening on campus at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel! We, at Home & School News, are always on the look out for stories to share to show our community the exciting things we do.
Welcome Sisters! Thanks for Giving!
This past week we welcomed the Sisters, Servants of the Plan of God, celebrated the Feast of All Saints with an all-school Mass, and kicked off our Thanksgiving and November food drives. If you see our Sisters around campus, be sure to say hi, and consider giving generously to our Works of Mercy campaign drives.
Our junior high had a superhero-themed dance. From Marvel to DC, a good time was had by all! On behalf of our junior high students, thank you to all who helped put this event together!
Preschool on Parade
On Monday, the students of the preschool showed off their costumes as they filed through our classrooms for their annual fall parade. Seeing our littlest falcons all dressed up, was the highlight of the day, especially for their 5th grade buddies.
Breakfast with the Saints
The kindergartners celebrated their annual breakfast with the Saints, in which each student comes to school dressed as his/her favorite Saint. The festivities included a light breakfast, and the children had the opportunity to share a little about their Saint.
Dia de los Muertos
Mrs. Carmody, our 4th through 6th grade Spanish teacher, set up an ofrenda in the school office for Dia de los Muertos, commemorating the Feast of All Souls. Students may send in photos of their deceased family members or friends to offer prayers for our faithful departed during the month of November.
Sweet Rewards for a Worthy Cause
Thank you to all those who donated candy to our Candy Buy Back drive. As a school we amassed 100 pounds of candy, which student council delivered to Curtis Orthodontics who in return gave $100.00 to our Works of Mercy campaign. Curtis Orthodontics plans to ship the candy oversees to service men and women through Operation Gratitude.
