3rd Place… Zoe Hawkins (5th Grade)


Grades 6-8


1st Place….J. Benjamin Louis (Grade 8)

2nd Place…Joanna Berrios (Grade 7H)

3rd Place…Mason Fong (Grade 6) and Maximilian Lanzarone (Grade 7H)

Field Day Thanks!

OLMCA’s Field Day was a tremendous success! Thanks to the parents and staff, you made it possible for our students to enjoy a fun-filled day at the Fleet Street Fields. I am so grateful for how many parents volunteered to supervise, donate water, set up, and clean up. I would like to acknowledge the HAA Executive Board for coordinating Field Day for our students. The HAA Executive Board spent countless hours behind the scenes working to make this such a smooth day for the students. From organizing volunteers to working with Soccer Friends, it would not have been possible without the vision of the HAA! OLMCA is extremely fortunate to have such a dedicated parent community. We truly hope to make this a new Mercy tradition!

Students may begin to wear their summer uniform on Monday, May 15th. Please be sure to refer to the Family Handbook for uniform guidelines and use the time now to ensure that you have all the necessary components for a complete uniform.

Thank You

Thank you so very much for remembering me on Principal Appreciation Day. I was truly touched by the outpouring of love from the entire OLMCA community. I absolutely loved reading the cards!  The students know me so well! Lots of Mercy symbols, pineapples and doodles! A wonderful way to start new month and another reminder of how amazing our school community is. A tremendous thank you to the OLMCA faculty for organizing this special day and keeping it a surprise!
