Dear OLMC Community,hermie

I want to congratulate our 2nd graders and all OLMC students who completed their First Reconciliation sacrament this past Friday. Thank you to all who prayed for and came to watch the students take this important step in their faith development. I would also like to thank our Home and School Board for hosting the reception that followed.

There is no school on Friday, March 9 and Monday, March 12.

The spring sports seasons are starting up. Please come out and support our Girls Basketball and Boys Baseball teams.

We will kick off preparations for this year’s festival, the OLMC Fiesta, this coming Thursday when festival shirts go on sale before and after school. Please visit the festival website for information concerning the live and silent auction, rides, and entertainment.

Sincerely,

1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Dear OLMC Community,hermie

As we close out Catholic Schools Week, I want to extend a special thank you to all of our volunteers who helped make this week a success. Each of the events the students participated in would not have been possible without the support of our volunteers.  OLMC students had the privilege of celebrating mass both on campus with Father John and at Sts. Simon and Jude with Bishop Olmsted, they learned a new way to pray and center themselves, competed in field day, and had an evening to host their parents and show off the work they have been doing in class for our Sister Cities Open House.  Our week culminated with a service activity contributing to St. Vincent de Paul. I would especially like to thank Father John for his support this week.

Progress Reports will be sent home after school on Wednesday.

I hope all of our families have had a very restful weekend following a busy week.

Sincerely,

Bruce Hermie

Principal

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School
