Falcon Five-2

1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Dear OLMC Community,

I would like to thank the parents who were able to attend the Junior High Back to School Night. I know how busy the evenings are, and we appreciate you coming to hear the presentations.

The children began learning Prayer in Motion this week in their homerooms and in Fine Arts. Prayer in Motion is a program that incorporates prayer gestures with movement and music. The children learned the weekly psalm and were able to not only sing the psalm during Mass but do the motions. The children will be learning the upcoming Sunday psalm weekly. They will do the prayer motion during the weekly Mass and hopefully again during the Sunday Mass.

Finally, parents please continue to exercise patience and awareness in the parking lot after school. Please use the crosswalks to cross traffic, and be aware of your surroundings as you back out and pull in to parking spaces. Thank you for your continued efforts in keeping our students safe.

Sincerely,

Kelly Shewbridge

Principal

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School
