1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER
Dear OLMC Community:
Recently, the first graders hosted their grandparents for Grandparents Day! We were honored to have them as our special guests. They visited with their grandchild, enjoyed some refreshments and listened to the children sing some songs. After the celebration they walked to the church and celebrated mass with the entire school community. It was wonderful to see so many generations praying and worshipping together!
Next week we will have picture day on Wednesday, September 26th. The photo order forms came home Friday with the children. Students should be in mass uniforms for pictures. If you have any questions, please contact the front office.
