1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Dear OLMC Community,

I wanted to end the school year by thanking everyone for a wonderful first year. I have been so fortunate to work with a supportive staff and so many parent volunteers who give their time and talent. Please know these efforts do not go unnoticed.  As we move into the summer, the next newsletter will be published toward the end of June.

As the remodel has already started please help support our portion of the $2.8 million dollar grant with a donation. You may send a check to the school, donate online at our website, or donate at the Church. We are also willing to do payment plans. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. We are still about $140,000.00 short of what we need. Thank you for all those families and staff members who have already donated.

Additionally, the physical office will be closed until August, but we are still working! If you need assistance, please contact Mrs. Watson at ginawatson@olmcschool.info or me, Dr. Kelly Shewbridge at kellyshewbridge@olmcschool.info.

Have a safe and blessed summer!

Dr. Shewbridge

1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Dear OLMC Community,

If you did not have the opportunity to celebrate Confirmation and First Holy Communion with the children this week, you missed a beautiful Mass. One of the many blessings we have here at Mt. Carmel is our faith formation and ability to worship together as a community. I am so thankful to be a part of this.

It is hard to believe this is the last week of the 2018-2019 school year! Please remember the change in calendar for this week. Thursday we will dismiss at 12:30. This will be the last day for Kid’s Club and the last day the children will be allowed on campus. Our “official” last day of school is Friday, May 24th. We will attend the 9am Mass ONLY. There is no morning care and the campus will be locked. Please bring your child to Mass at 9am. See you there.

Since the campus will be closed there will be no VBS this summer. In lieu of VBS several OLMC families have joined together to organize some family nights. Attached to this email is a flyer for these events.

Thank you to all of those who purchased coffee and drinks from the Full Circle Coffee Shop this past Friday. We appreciate your support! We are hoping to do this on a regular basis next year.

See you in the morning,

Dr. Shewbridge

Principal

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School

Dear Parents,

As we are nearing the last two weeks, we have a lot coming up! I wanted to first express to the mothers a heartfelt Happy Mother’s Day! Next, I wanted to extend a thank you to Home and School along with the families who made Teacher Appreciation Week such a great week for all! Thank you for your kindness.

This Friday is a Spirit Day. We will have a 12:30 dismissal. This is the last Spirit Day of the year.

Later this week, parents will receive an email about a new app-based scrip store. When using this store, you will be able to charge your scrip! Read the attached letter for more information and how to sign up. Please contact Cindy Younger at 480-967-5567, ext. 2 or cindy@olmctempe.com with any additional questions.

This Friday, the Full Circle Coffee Shop will be open in McCready Hall if you are interested in purchasing coffee. They will begin selling coffee starting at 7:30. If you have not purchased a drink from them after Mass, stop by because you will not be disappointed! The prices are reasonable and the drinks are delicious.

Remember we will have a half day on Thursday, May 23rdwith the end of the year parties. This will be the last day for Kid’s Club. On Friday, May 24thplease bring your children to Mass with you at 9am. We will dismiss from the Church for the summer. This will be our last day of school. No one will be allowed on campus after Thursday until the construction is finished.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend,

As we clean out this year’s old school supplies, we are asking everyone – students, teachers, staff, and parents, to donate old markers to Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing program devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills!

A drop-off box will be located in the office to deposit the markers. All around OLMC, please collect used markers that are ready to be discarded. Also, please bring in any used markers you may have around the house – even non-Crayola brands! Highlighters and dry erase markers can also be included.

Thank you in advance for participating! For questions, please contact Annemarie Mulligan or learn more at http://www.crayola.com/colorcycle.
