Dear OLMC Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! As we look forward to the start of the year, there is some general information I want to share to help you and your student prepare for a return to campus.

On Monday, August 6thwe will welcome all families back to campus for orientation and Meet the Teacher. Orientation will take place between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. in McCready Hall. All families need to attend orientation to fill out forms, learn who their teacher will be for the upcoming year, and drop off supplies to classrooms. There will be a used uniform sale, you can purchase yearbooks for only $20.00, and sign up for Fall sports. It is also a credit card day for FFT. Please remember when going to meet the teacher, 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. We will celebrate the beginning of the school year Mass on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., and all students must come in Mass dress. As always, parents are welcome to attend our all-school Masses.

Home and School will be hosting the first Coffree of the year on Friday, August 10thbeginning at 7:45 a.m. Please stop by for coffee, a light breakfast and fellowship after you have taken your child to class. Here you will have the opportunity to meet and get to know the new Assistant Principal, Mr. Groseta.

I am excited to welcome the students back to campus! I hope that all our families have had an enjoyable summer vacation. See you tomorrow!
