Falcon Five-2


Dear OLMC Community,

Another school year has come and gone. With it have come many experiences, memories and accomplishments that our students will take with them into the summer. We look forward to welcoming the students back to campus in August. The first day of school next year will be Tuesday, August 7. Orientation for all grades will take place on Monday, August 6th.

I look forward to an exciting 2018-2019 school year and continuing to partner with OLMC families to provide an outstanding learning environment for our students. I wish each of our families a blessed and wonderful summer break. See you in August!
