1. Principal’s Corner
Dear OLMC Community,
In setting up the field trip transportation schedule this week I was reminded of one of many great benefits of our FFT program. Your efforts in using the program thus far this year are greatly appreciated. Money from the FFT program not only provides for the cost of field trips, but this year it has also helped us update various projectors and document cameras on campus, pay for subscriptions to supplemental instructional materials for all classes, and enhanced the overall learning environment of the school. Thank you to all families who are working to meet their FFT goals. If you have not started yet and would like additional information, including information on the Shop With Scrip app available on your phone, please contact Cindy Younger at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
On Tuesday, October 3rd, we will be hosting a seminar on How to Afford a Catholic Education. This seminar will provide helpful insights into using CEA and the Student Tuition Scholarship Organizations to help pay the cost of tuition. If you are interested in attending the session, please find the RSVP link on our website. This information will be helpful to current, future, and prospective families alike. If you have questions, please contact our Development Director, Kelly Kubicki, at email@example.com.
