Falcon Five-2


Dear OLMC Community,hermie

I want to congratulate our 2nd graders and all OLMC students who completed their First Reconciliation sacrament this past Friday. Thank you to all who prayed for and came to watch the students take this important step in their faith development. I would also like to thank our Home and School Board for hosting the reception that followed.

There is no school on Friday, March 9 and Monday, March 12.

The spring sports seasons are starting up. Please come out and support our Girls Basketball and Boys Baseball teams.

We will kick off preparations for this year’s festival, the OLMC Fiesta, this coming Thursday when festival shirts go on sale before and after school. Please visit the festival website for information concerning the live and silent auction, rides, and entertainment.
