Principal’s Corner – May 28, 2017

Dear OLMC Community,

Another school year has come to a close. I wanted to thank our OLMC Dad’s Club for their efforts in putting on the end of the year barbeque this past Wednesday. The event was well attended, and it was a great way to celebrate the end of the school year as a community.

I also want to extend a very special thank you to all of our students, parents, faculty, and staff for a fantastic 2016-2017 school year. As the students looked back on the year through their yearbooks this week and reminisced at class parties, it was evident that they shared many good times, built friendships, and grew as a community. I wish all our families a safe and enjoyable summer. I hope this time away is one filled with joy and family time. We will look forward to welcoming our students back in August. May God continue to bless each of our school families and our entire OLMC community.

Sincerely,

Principal’s Corner – May 14, 2017

Dear OLMC Community,

I would like to congratulate all OLMC students who made their First Communion/Confirmation on Saturday. It was a wonderful ceremony and event.

On Wednesday, we will bid a fond farewell to the graduating class of 2017. I invite all members of our community to join us at 7:00 p.m. to celebrate this milestone in their lives. Please pray for our graduates as they move onto the next phase of their academic lives.

This coming Friday is a half day with a 12:30 p.m. dismissal. Any student remaining on campus at 12:45 p.m. will go to Kid’s Club.

Sincerely,

Dear OLMC Community:

It is hard to believe the last week of the school year is upon us.  We will celebrate our final all-school Mass of the school year on Friday at 11:30 a.m. Parents are welcome to join us. Dismissal is at 12:30 p.m., and any student still on campus will go to Kid’s Club at 12:45 p.m.

This past week I was reminded of the many special things that make OLMC such a wonderful community. On Tuesday, I was fortunate enough to spend time with our graduating 8th graders who took a trip to the St. Vincent de Paul food kitchen in downtown Phoenix. I watched and worked with these young men and women as they gave of their time and talents to benefit those less fortunate than them. The students worked the gardens where the center grows produce, prepped lunch in the kitchens, and helped serve food in the lunch room. Their selflessness and willingness to serve was evident, and I found myself thankful for the experience with them.

This was one example of the way the class of 2017 helped shape the community around them. During their time as students of OLMC, they completed countless hours of service in many other ways. While I am sad to see their time at OLMC come to an end, I cannot help but feel excited about all the good they will do as they move forward into high school.

I invite all our families to attend the end of year barbeque sponsored by the Dad’s Club next Wednesday.  It is a great way to end the school year and have one more opportunity for fellowship before the summer.

Sincerely,
