Dear OLMC Community:hermie

Next week we will have picture day on Wednesday, September 27th. Students should be in mass uniforms for pictures. If you have any questions, please contact the front office.

The fall sports season is in full swing. I invite all in our community to come out and support the Falcon volleyball and football teams as they compete in their respective CYAA leagues.

Our How to Afford a Catholic Education information session scheduled for October 3rd in the school library is filling up fast. There are still spaces available. Please RSVP to our Advancement Director, Mrs. Kelly Kubicki, at if you would like to attend.

OLMC has received our disbursement from the Fry’s Community Rewards Program! fry's rewards

The latest cycle ran from June 1, 2017 through August 31, 2017. Thanks to OLMC families and friends, the school has received a check for $1,750.39!

In order to receive a tuition rebate on your Fry’s purchases, you must turn in a printed copy from your Fry’s account that reflects the amount of your donation. Please drop off your statement in the school office or send it in your FFT envelope.

Forward this information to any family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors that may be donating on your behalf, and have them give you copies of their statements as well. Please notate your student/family name on all statements. 

Please turn in all statements by October 13th. 

If you still shop at Fry’s, please use Visa cards, now available in $50, $100, $250 @ 1.25%.  We are hoping that everyone switches to stores that support our school and education.  Hopefully, the loss of our business will wake Fry’s up and they will join our program again someday.

Link as many VIP cards to OLMC as possible!
