Falcon Five-2


Dear OLMC Community,

This past week we celebrated the Pet Blessing. Mr. Salas sang for us and Father blessed the pets. Thank you both for this special celebration blessing pets on the feast day of St. Francis.

The first quarter ends this week on October 11th. Report cards will be emailed home on Wednesday, October 17th.

There is no school on October 12thdue to a Diocesan-wide teacher inservice. We will also have a brief Fall Break, so the school will be closed October 15thand 16th. We will return on the 17th.

The Home and School Board will be hosting Trunk or Treat on October 27th. Thank you to the families who have brought in candy. If you are interested in decorating your trunk, please send in your completed form. I look forward to this fun, family friendly OLMC community event!

We are beginning to collect food for the Thanksgiving St. Vincent de Paul community food drive we participate in annually. Included in the newsletter is information suggesting what each class is to bring.

As cooler temperatures approach, please remember that only OLMC sweatshirts and jackets can be worn indoors. When students are on the playground, they may wear a non-OLMC sweatshirt that is school appropriate. We will be selling the OLMC sweatshirts again towards the end of the month. More information to come!

Have a wonderful weekend!

The Trunk or Treat Candy Drive is off to a great start! Now don’t forget to register your trunk for OLMC’s FIRST annual Trunk or Treat! Get your form here, and return to the office by Monday, October 22, 2018.

Decorate your vehicle for Trunk or Treat fun! Be creative as you decorate, but please be sensitive to the age range of our students as well as our Catholic values; please do not make your trunk frightening or gory.

  • Trunk decorations can be simple or elaborate. It’s up to you!
  • Trunk decorations must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
  • Trunk decorations may not contain weapons.
  • There will be no electricity so please keep that in mind.
  • How it works on Trunk or Treat day:
    • Vehicles will be admitted to the playground staring at 1:30pm on Saturday, October 27th to set up. Trunk or Treaters will be allowed to enter at 3:30pm. A parent must be with the vehicle at all times during Trunk or Treat from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. A parent or guardian must also be with their child while Trunk or Treating. For safety, children who are not members of your family should not enter your vehicle during the event. If a child is lost, hurt, or in need of help, please contact the nearest staff member so they can assist the child.
    • Interested?!? Great! Sign up today! Each vehicle will need to have a completed registration form to participate. After completing the form, kindly return to the School Office by October 22, 2018. You will then receive confirmation prior to the event.
