Thursday, April 22: We are having a virtual meeting with parents on the topic of “Helping parents navigate the digital generation” at 7pm via Zoom. This 45 minute meeting (in English) is open to any OLC parent and any other adult you would like to invite. Our presenters, from Project B3, will identify best practices for parents in this new digital generation. You will gain a better understanding of how your child engages online, and learn to implement a less restrictive approach to mentoring them. The presentation will include a review of top trends on social media. Look for registration info as the date approaches.
Friday, May 7: confirmation for 6th graders at 7pm. The child’s sponsor and two guests may attend. The ceremony will be in the church.
