Dear OLMC Community,hermie

This week we will celebrate the arrival of the Our Lady of Fatima statue to OLMC on Thursday and Friday. On Thursday at 1:45 p.m., a special video will be shown and will be followed by a rosary prayer session at 2:00 p.m. On Friday, we will celebrate our weekly school mass at 2 p.m.  Please make sure students are in mass dress on Friday. As always, parents are more than welcome to attend these events.

Thank you to all families who have returned their conference slips. You will receive confirmation of your conference times on Friday. Please remember that November 1st-3rd are half-days with a 12:30 p.m. dismissal for conferences. Kid’s Club will be open from 12:30-6:00 p.m. each of those days.
