1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER
Dear OLMC Community,
I wanted to thank the Dad’s Club for a hosting their movie night this weekend. I appreciate all the work they put into organizing the event. The movie was cute!
As we begin the Advent season, we will start praying together in the morning before school and lighting the Advent Wreath. The 7thgrade students will lead us in prayer. This will begin at 8:05 am. If you have a few minutes, please stay and pray with us.
Friday is a half day with a 12:30 dismissal. The children can also wear jeans and a spirit shirt.
As Christmas break approaches, I would invite all families to use our FFT program for all your gift card and present buying needs. Thank you to all our families who have met their FFT minimum and continue to use the program to benefit the students. There are currently a number of bonuses that can be taken advantage of, and FFT will be sold at the Christmas play on December 19th.
I would ask all parents help in cleaning up a couple of issues in the parking lot. When dropping off students in the morning, please do so on the south side of the lot so parishioners exiting from morning mass and staff members entering for the day can navigate the north side safely. Also, as you enter campus, please enter slowly and be aware of pedestrians crossing and cross traffic moving to the front of the church at the exit. Please park on the south side of the parking lot in the afternoon. It is dangerous to exit through the north side as the children are waiting there. When leaving at the end of the day, please use the crosswalk so the children remain safe. Thank you for your diligence in making the pick-up and drop-off processes safe for all.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School
