Falcon Five-2

1. Principal’s Corner

Dear OLMC Community,hermie

This week we look forward to welcoming parents to campus Wednesday-Friday for conferences. Please remember that each of those days is a half-day with a 12:30 p.m. dismissal time. Any student not picked up by 12:45 p.m. will be sent to Kid’s Club.

Next Friday is a First Friday half-day. Students may wear jeans and OLMC spirit shirts. Jeans must be blue in color and may not have rips or tears. As always, students may wear their uniform that day if they like.

Thank you to all the members of the community who came out to celebrate the Our Lady of Fatima events with us on Thursday and Friday. It was truly a unique experience and it was wonderful that our community was selected to host the statue and participate in these events.

OLMC, in conjunction with Dr. Alan Curtis and Curtis Orthodontics, is once again sponsoring the Halloween Candy Buy Back program. Students may turn in their candy  on November 1st and 2nd. The money raised will go to our Works of Mercy Campaign, and Dr. Curtis donates all the candy he “buys” back to our troops overseas via Operation Gratitude.
