May 27, 2022

Dear Parents, Please remember to take a few minutes to pray with your children for the victims of the violence in Uvalde, Texas. See our school website or Facebook page for additional tips for parents. This Memorial Day weekend, we honor and pray for the men and women who have courageously laid down their lives for our freedom. May God grant them mercy and welcome them into His heavenly kingdom (NCEA).

Congratulations to our graduating 8th graders, OLC Class of 2022! God bless them as they begin their high school journey. Olympic Day this week was a big hit! I would like to thank these three: 1. Mrs. Peg Sweeney for making it possible! 2. You parents, for all your generous donations of time and food! 3. The 8th grade class, for their leadership and maturity!

Be sure to keep your PowerSchool email address, phone number, and mailing address up to date. For School Messenger emails, PowerSchool automatically pulls from the “Guardian Email Address” listing, so please look at that.

Our lost and found is packed. If your child misplaced an item at school, stop in to have a look (room 104).

Students may come out of uniform on the last day of school, June 3 (no charge).

Refer a new family to OLC, and we will waive your tuition for one month next school year. The new family must enroll a child to qualify for the waiver.

Take advantage of the summer months to update your VIRTUS training so you can volunteer next year.

The school supply list for next school year will be emailed to you in the next couple of weeks.

Our summer office hours begin on Monday, June 6: Mon. - Thurs., 8:00 - 12:00.
