Dear OLMC Community,hermie

This week we bring first semester to a close and prepare for Christmas break. I hope you can all join us at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday night for the Christmas program in the church. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. Students should report to their classrooms at 6:30 p.m. Please remember that students will not be supervised on campus until 6:30 and must remain with a parent until that time. Students must be picked up from their classrooms after the show ends.

We will celebrate our all school mass on Wednesday at 2 p.m. next week. This is a change to the original school calendar. Please make sure students are dressed in proper mass attire.

Next week our Student Leadership group is hosting spirit week on campus. The parameters for dress were emailed home via Renweb, are included in this newsletter, and were sent home with students. Please make sure any student participating is dressed within prescribed guidelines.

For any of you still looking to complete your Christmas shopping, FFT will be available Monday-Thursday before and after school. FFT will also be sold before and after the Christmas program in the office.

On behalf of the administration, faculty and staff at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May the coming year be full of many blessings for each of our families. Thank you for allowing us to work with your children and partner with you in support of their growth and the growth of our community at large. May God bless you all during this Christmas season.
