1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER
Dear OLMC Families,
On Monday, August 6thwe will welcome all families back to campus for Orientation and Meet the Teacher. Orientation will take place in McCready Hall from 9 a.m. to noon. All families need to attend orientation to fill out forms, learn who their teachers will be for the upcoming year, and drop off supplies to classrooms. Please remember that all students must be accompanied by their parents, as teachers will be unable to supervise them during this time. School will begin at 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday, August 7th. Please remember that we will celebrate the beginning of the school year with Mass on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., and all students must come in Mass dress on the first day. As always, parents are welcome to attend our all-school Masses.
On Tuesday, August 14thwe will have Back to School Night from 6-8 p.m. for grades kindergarten through 6th. We will begin the evening in the Church and then transition to the classrooms for teacher presentations. On Wednesday, August 22ndwe will have Junior High Night from 6-8 p.m. Again, we will begin in the Church and then move to the classrooms. Both Back to School and Junior High nights are for parents only please.
On August 18ththe Dad’s Club will host their Back to School BBQ. This is always a great community event, and I hope to see you there!
The faculty and staff have been hard at work preparing to welcome the students. We look forward to an outstanding 2018-2019 school year. I ask that you pray for our students, teachers and the OLMC community at large as the school year gets underway.
