1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER
Dear OLMC Community,
On Wednesday we celebrate the beginning of the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday mass. We invite all in the OLMC community to come and share in this special mass with us.
With Valentine’s Day approaching this week, the FFT office is selling candy boxes. If you are still trying to meet your FFT minimums, stop in and see what they have to offer.
Information regarding registration for the 2018-2019 school year will be sent home with students next week.

2018 Festival News – “Mt. Carmel Fiesta”
The 2018 OLMC “Mt. Carmel Fiesta” Festival is right around the corner:
Saturday, April 21, 2018
12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Each family is required to complete a minimum of six (6) volunteer hours for the festival. (Preschool ONLY families are required to complete a minimum of four (4) hours for the festival. If families have students in BOTH the preschool and the elementary school, six (6) hours are required.) Two of those hours may be completed prior to the festival week, but at least four (4) hours must be completed between Monday, April 16 and Sunday, April 22, 2018.
Students may not fulfill the family volunteer requirement; however, this is an excellent opportunity for high school students to earn service credit hours.
Please note, per the school contract, if you do not fulfill your required hours you will be charged $100.00 per uncompleted hour ($50.00 per hour for preschool only).
We are currently working on the festival signup genius. Each family was assigned a Family ID, which will be included on the festival packets when they are sent home with eldest siblings. This Family ID will be required in order to sign up for your family’s volunteer hours on the festival signup genius. This will help in tracking and reporting all family volunteer hours. For questions regarding volunteer hours, please email Ashley Hall, Festival Volunteer Coordinator.
