Dear Parents, You once again have an opportunity to participate in the 5Essentials Survey. It takes 15 minutes to complete. Based on survey responses last year, we made important revisions to our school programs at OLC. The link is below. Surveys must be completed by next Friday: 2022 Archdiocese of Chicago Parent Survey Link to survey:

The season of Lent leads us towards the promise of Christ’s new and abundant life. Use the attached Lenten Calendar with your OLC student for daily suggestions for an action, prayer, or contemplation. It’s in English and in Spanish.

We have a great raffle this month in which you can make extra cash: a 50/50 split the pot raffle. Tickets are $20 and they are sold in the office. 50% of the money collected will go toward the winner and the other 50% to our school. The winner will be announced Friday, March 4.

OLC tuition rates for 2022-2023:

1 student: $5956 2 students: $9206 3 students: $12,094 4 students: $ 14,214
