Dear OLMC Community,

Thank you to all our parents who joined us for conferences last week. We look forward to continuing our shared partnership in educating our students. Please remain in touch with us for any questions you may have regarding your student’s progress.

On Friday we will host our annual Taste of Kindergarten presentation from 9-10:30 a.m. If you know of any families who have children and may be interested in joining the OLMC community, please direct them to our website for more information.

We are in the home stretch of our Thanksgiving food drive benefitting St. Vincent de Paul. Thank you to those who have already donated to help those in need.

There are multiple events taking place on campus this month. Our first book fair of the year will take place the week of November 13th and will be held in the Library. On November 18th, the Dad’s Club will host their annual Movie Night out on the field. November 22nd is our annual STEM Day. Registration is also open for the Breakfast with Saint Nick being hosted by our Home and School board on December 10th. To register, please see our website.
