Dear OLMC Community,hermie

The week ahead is brief but filled with activities. We will celebrate our all school mass on Tuesday this week. Please make sure students are in mass attire. On Wednesday, we will have our annual STEM day. Students may wear navy jeans or jean shorts along with OLMC spirit shirts. Wednesday is a half-day with a 12:30 dismissal time. Any students still on campus at 12:45 will be sent to Kid’s Club. As a result of the events taking place, we will not have Learning Labs next week.

As the weather begins to change, please be reminded that students may only wear OLMC sweatshirts in classrooms. Non-OLMC sweatshirts may be worn on the playground. I would also like to ask parents to ensure students are wearing tennis shoes on the days students have P.E. If a student is not wearing footwear appropriate to P.E., they will sit out the class.

I want to wish all OLMC families a very Happy Thanksgiving. May the time be filled with peace and joy for each of you, and if you are traveling during the holiday weekend, we wish you a safe trip and return.

Sincerely,

Bruce Hermie

This week we will have our first Book Fair of the year in the Library. The Book Fair will be open from 7:45-8:05 a.m. in the mornings, and from 3:00-4:00 p.m. each afternoon. Students will also have the opportunity to attend the fair during their regularly scheduled Library times. Due to the Book Fair being held in the library, morning Kid’s Club will be held in McCready Hall next week. Please let your students know to report to McCready Hall if they are on campus prior to 7:45 a.m.

Picture retakes are on Thursday, November 16th. If your student is having his or her picture retaken, they must return the first set of pictures to the photographer. Students who were absent on picture day and are having their pictures taken for the first time must have a picture form. Forms are available in the front office.

If you have a student signed up for the winter sports season, please make sure all forms and payments are submitted to the front office. Students may not participate in their sport until all necessary information is on file.
