Dear Parents,

8th grade graduation is tonight at 7pm, and our school year is quickly coming to a close. We continue to closely follow guidelines from the Archdiocese to see what COVID related changes are in store for next school year; I will keep you posted. Here at OLC this year, we prioritized the safety and security of our students to provide them with a high quality, faith-filled education in a stable learning environment. We had our challenges along the way, but overall the year was a success. Thank you for your support.
