Falcon Five-2

1. Principal’s Corner

Dear OLMC Community,hermie

This week we will have our first Book Fair of the year in the Library. The Book Fair will be open from 7:45-8:05 a.m. in the mornings, and from 3:00-4:00 p.m. each afternoon. Students will also have the opportunity to attend the fair during their regularly scheduled Library times. Due to the Book Fair being held in the library, morning Kid’s Club will be held in McCready Hall next week. Please let your students know to report to McCready Hall if they are on campus prior to 7:45 a.m.

Picture retakes are on Thursday, November 16th. If your student is having his or her picture retaken, they must return the first set of pictures to the photographer. Students who were absent on picture day and are having their pictures taken for the first time must have a picture form. Forms are available in the front office.

If you have a student signed up for the winter sports season, please make sure all forms and payments are submitted to the front office. Students may not participate in their sport until all necessary information is on file.
