Falcon Five-2


Dear OLMC Community,hermie

As we move into the final month of the school year, I want to take the time to invite you to multiple events taking place on campus:

May 2nd: Kindergarten Stars and Stripes in McCready Hall at 7:00 p.m.

May 4th: May Crowning Mass at 11:15 a.m. in the Church

May 12th: Communion/Confirmation at 10:00 a.m. in the Church

May 16th: 8thGrade Graduation at 7:00 p.m. in the Church

We look forward to welcoming parents and community members to campus in support of the students for these events.

The last day for Learning Labs this year will be Thursday, May 10th.

Please remember that this Friday is a half-day. As it is May Crowning and there is mass, all students must be in appropriate mass dress on Friday. We do not have mass on Wednesday this week and, therefore, students do not need to be in mass attire.
