Falcon Five-2

1. Principal’s Corner

Dear OLMC Community,hermie

The week ahead is brief but filled with activities. We will celebrate our all school mass on Tuesday this week. Please make sure students are in mass attire. On Wednesday, we will have our annual STEM day. Students may wear navy jeans or jean shorts along with OLMC spirit shirts. Wednesday is a half-day with a 12:30 dismissal time. Any students still on campus at 12:45 will be sent to Kid’s Club. As a result of the events taking place, we will not have Learning Labs next week.

As the weather begins to change, please be reminded that students may only wear OLMC sweatshirts in classrooms. Non-OLMC sweatshirts may be worn on the playground. I would also like to ask parents to ensure students are wearing tennis shoes on the days students have P.E. If a student is not wearing footwear appropriate to P.E., they will sit out the class.

I want to wish all OLMC families a very Happy Thanksgiving. May the time be filled with peace and joy for each of you, and if you are traveling during the holiday weekend, we wish you a safe trip and return.
