Dear Parents, Happy New Year to all of you. We look forward to a brighter year ahead, and may God’s love always surround us on our journey. Please let me know if there’s ever anything I can do to make your OLC experience in 2022 the best one yet.

We are having a Read-a-thon fundraiser this month: this fundraiser is very different from others as it is academically focused, and should get our students excited about reading. Our Read-a-thon starts Mon., Jan.10. Earlier this week we sent home instructions on how to activate your child’s personal page, where you will be able to view and record their progress. We encourage you to activate your reader’s account today by clicking on and following the simple instructions.

Do you want to change your tuition payment date? We can do that for you, but we must have ten business days advance notice. Email your request to

We hope that everyone is returning to OLC next school year. On Feb. 10 we will automatically re-enroll your child and apply the registration fee to your FACTS account.
