1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Dear OLMC Community,hermie

I want to thank all those members of our community who came out in support of our 8thgraders this past Friday for May Crowning and in support of our Kindergartners who put on their annual performance of Stars and Stripes Forever on Wednesday. Both events were wonderful and a testament to our community and the hard work of our students and teachers to make them possible.

First Communion and Confirmation will take place next week in the Church at 10 a.m. I invite all in our community to come out and support our 3rdgraders as they take this important step in their faith development. Please pray for all our students taking part and their sponsors.

Sincerely,

Bruce Hermie

1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Dear OLMC Community,hermie

As we move into the final month of the school year, I want to take the time to invite you to multiple events taking place on campus:

May 2nd: Kindergarten Stars and Stripes in McCready Hall at 7:00 p.m.

May 4th: May Crowning Mass at 11:15 a.m. in the Church

May 12th: Communion/Confirmation at 10:00 a.m. in the Church

May 16th: 8thGrade Graduation at 7:00 p.m. in the Church

We look forward to welcoming parents and community members to campus in support of the students for these events.

The last day for Learning Labs this year will be Thursday, May 10th.

Please remember that this Friday is a half-day. As it is May Crowning and there is mass, all students must be in appropriate mass dress on Friday. We do not have mass on Wednesday this week and, therefore, students do not need to be in mass attire.

Sincerely,

Bruce Hermie

1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

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.

Sincerely,

Bruce Hermie
