Dear Parents,

Our Read-a-thon fundraiser continues through January 21: We sent home instructions on how to activate your child’s personal page, where you can view and record their progress. There will be prizes for the students with the most minutes recorded. Prizes include a “Principal for a Day” award, out-of-uniform passes, and a 5 lb. chocolate bar. Can you donate a box of masks to the school? We go through a lot of them, and can use your help with this. Parent-Teacher conferences are on Thurs., Feb. 10. Students will be dismissed at 11:30. Conferences will be virtual, via Zoom, this year as a COVID precaution. I hope you find this more convenient; you can always schedule a face-to-face meeting with a teacher before or after school if needed. February conferences are at your request or by teacher request. Once again, you will be using Pick-A-Time to sign-up for a time slot. There is no school on Fri., Feb. 11 (staff development day). Family photo: We are going to create a bulletin board that highlights each family at OLC for Catholic Schools Week. All students PK - 8 should bring a photo of your family to their teacher no later than Jan. 28. Include your student’s name on the back, and the photo will be returned. Xeroxed photos are fine. The age of the photo is unimportant. Thank you. Do you want to change your tuition payment date? We can do that for you, but we must have 10 business days advance notice. Email your request to Early bird registration for next school year is 50% off the regular registration price. Register your child now for next year and the fee is $200. The fee increases to $400 beginning Feb. 6. Contact Ms. Candelaria Rosales to register: 708-652-0262 ext. 203 or via email On Feb. 10 we will automatically re-enroll your child for next year and apply the registration fee to your FACTS account. If you do not plan on registering for the 2022-23 school year, contact Ms. Rosales no later than Feb. 5. The registration fee is non-refundable. Get your VIRTUS training so you can volunteer! Go to our website for info: Important dates: Monday, January 17: no school; Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Wednesday, January 19: early dismissal (30 minutes before the regular time) Friday, January 28: family photo due (see above)

Yours in Christ,
