1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Dear OLMC Community,

I want to thank our faculty, students, and parents for a fantastic first week of the school year! It has been wonderful to have the students back on campus, interacting with their friends, and working hard in the classrooms.

I would like to thank our Home and School Board for hosting the first Coffree of the year. It was great to see so many of you there!

Wednesday is a Holy Day of Obligation, the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The parking lot will be very full on Wednesday, so please be extra patient at dismissal.

We will begin Learning Labs on Tuesday, August 14th. Learning Labs are open for students in grades 4-8 from 3:15 to 3:45 to go to their teachers for extra assistance if needed. Learning Labs are every Tuesday and Thursday. Please pick up your student at the classroom at 3:45. Those students not picked up will be signed into Kid’s Club.

We look forward to seeing the Kindergarten-6th grade parents on Tuesday, August 14th for Back to School Night. There will be a short presentation in the Church, and then everyone will move to the classrooms. This event is for parents only. The Junior High Back to School Night is scheduled for Wednesday, August 22nd.

Finally, Saturday, August 18th is the Dad’s Club Back to School BBQ. The BBQ will begin at 5:30pm. This is always such a fun night of food, friends and fellowship! This year there will be BINGO, too! Looking forward to seeing you there!!

Sincerely,

Kelly Shewbridge

1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Dear OLMC Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! As we look forward to the start of the year, there is some general information I want to share to help you and your student prepare for a return to campus.

On Monday, August 6thwe will welcome all families back to campus for orientation and Meet the Teacher. Orientation will take place between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. in McCready Hall. All families need to attend orientation to fill out forms, learn who their teacher will be for the upcoming year, and drop off supplies to classrooms. There will be a used uniform sale, you can purchase yearbooks for only $20.00, and sign up for Fall sports. It is also a credit card day for FFT. Please remember when going to meet the teacher, all students must be accompanied by their parents as teachers will be unable to supervise them during this time. School will begin at 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday. We will celebrate the beginning of the school year Mass on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., and all students must come in Mass dress. As always, parents are welcome to attend our all-school Masses.

Home and School will be hosting the first Coffree of the year on Friday, August 10thbeginning at 7:45 a.m. Please stop by for coffee, a light breakfast and fellowship after you have taken your child to class. Here you will have the opportunity to meet and get to know the new Assistant Principal, Mr. Groseta.
