OUR LADY OF CHARITY SCHOOL WEEKLY NEWSLETTER

November 5, 2021


Dear Parents, Veterans! Fr. Sergio will celebrate a special Mass for Veterans at 1:00pm on Veterans Day: Thursday, November 11. This will be an all school Mass (grades 1 - 8); family members of students who are Veterans and all parents are invited.

Financial aid: Tuition and payment related questions may be directed by email to our operations director, Becky Cornacchia: finance@olc-school.org. This includes, for example, inquiries related to payment date changes, delinquency, aid amount, financial aid available, etc. Finance office hours are Monday and Thursday, by appointment, from 8:30-3:30. If you prefer to call, dial extension 102.

Empower Illinois’ reservations for a 2022-2023 tax credit scholarship will open Wednesday, January 12, at 6:30 pm. As in previous years, the reservation will be a two-step process: at 6:30 pm, the reservation form will open, giving families time to enter their information before submission at 7 pm. Once families reserve their time stamp, they will receive an email to log into their EmpowerXChange portal and complete the application when it opens on Friday, January 14.

OLC will begin a new registration process for the 2022-2023 school year: you will no longer have to come in and register at the school office. Early bird registration will run from January 3 - February 5. At that time you may login to your FACTS account and pay the discounted registration fee (50% off). You’ll be able to download the registration contract from our website (www.olc-school.org) and either email it to enrollment@olc- school.org or drop it off in the school office. If you do not plan on registering for the 2022-23 school year, be sure to contact our marketing director, Ms. Candelaria Rosales, no later than February 5. If we do not hear from you by that date, your child will be automatically re-enrolled via FACTS on Thursday, February 11.

Volunteer hours are mandatory. Go to our website for all the info: olc-school.org

Important dates: Thursday, November 11: Veterans Day Mass at 1pm. Parents and all Veterans are invited. Thursday, November 11: High School Fair at OLC, 6:00 - 7:30 pm. All the area Catholic high schools will have representatives to talk to parents and students in Halpin Hall. Friday, November 12: no school; teacher staff development day Wednesday, November 17: early dismissal (30 minutes before the regular time)

Thursday, November 18: VanGogh photo retakes (previously scheduled for Nov. 10). Retakes are for students who were absent on picture day on October 5 or for parents who would like a retake of their child’s photograph. If retaking, please have your child return the original picture package (not yet distributed to students) to the photographer on Nov. 18.

Wednesday, November 24 - Sunday, November 28: no school; Thanksgiving break Tuesday, November 30: due date for Thanksgiving Collection for the Homeless service project donations.


Yours in Christ, Frank S. Zárate, Jr., Ed.D. Principal (708) 652-0262 fzarate@olc-school.org
