Principal’s Corner – January 15, 2017

hermieDear OLMC Community,

Catholic Schools Week, a nationwide celebration of Catholic education, will take place January 30th through February 3rd. As part of the festivities, we will be holding our second annual St. Vincent de Paul food drive. Your child’s homeroom teacher should have sent home a note this past week outlining what item their class is asked to donate. Last year, we were able to fill over 50 boxes for families in need. We hope to match or exceed that number this year. Students take an active role in filling the boxes and provide written notes and pictures to families. Thank you for your participation in this event.

We are also in need of parent volunteers for Field Day which will take place on Tuesday, January 31st from 1:00 p.m to 3:00 p.m. (lunch starts at 12:15 p.m.). Field Day is a wonderful afternoon full of games and friendly competition for the students. If you are interested in helping, please see the sign-up genius in this week’s newsletter.
