Falcon Five-2

1. Principal’s Corner

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.
