Falcon Five-2


Dear OLMC Community,hermie

Another OLMC Festival has come and gone. I hope all those that attended our “OLMC Fiesta” enjoyed themselves. The Festival is always a wonderful time to come together as a community and celebrate the remarkable relationships that exist as members of OLMC. I thank all our parent volunteers who make this event possible, especially those who chair the various portions of the event, putting in countless hours of their free time to benefit the school and students.

Voting for next year’s School Advisory Board positions will take place before and after school on Wednesday, April 25. Biographies of those parents who turned in nomination forms are included in this week’s newsletter. I encourage all parents to stop into the office on the 25thto vote for the candidates they would like to represent them on the board.

This is the last week for families to meet their FFT minimums for this year. Please stop in to the office this week to purchase your FFT.
