Dear Parents and Guardians,
It has been amazing start to Catholic Schools Week. Thank you to all the families that attended our Catholic Schools Week Mass and Open House on Sunday. Our Scholastic Book Fair and fun events were a tremendous success thanks to the leadership of Mrs. Orlov and her volunteer team of parents, students, and teachers. This year, we had two new events during the Book Fair including a “Grand Event” for the grandparents and special friends of our Nursery, Pre-K, and Kindergarten students. We also had a Tie-Dye workshop for our students in Grades 3-8. The students can’t wait to show off their shirts on Mission Day!
We look forward to a successful rest of the week filled with fun events for our students and teachers. Please remember to also “like” us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram to see photos from each event.
Please read on for pertinent information about the upcoming weeks.

Come cheer on our students as ALL students grades K – 8 are invited to compete in relay races that test the physical fitness and cognitive strengths they learn throughout the year in gym and recess with E3 Sports and OLMCA’s teachers! * All funds go towards supporting our school’s $40,000 “tuition gap” fund.
*Race challenges include hula hooping, dribbling, cup stacking, jump roping, kicks and more. Teams assigned upon arrival. Healthy snacks will be sold! Free water refills if you bring your water bottle
SPONSOR A STUDENT! Unable to attend? Want to know how else you can help? This year each student can sign up for one individual sports challenge and compete for the most reps in one category…jump roping, soccer goals, basketball dribbles, hula hoops, jumping jacks and more.

This is a friendly reminder that all visitors to the building must check into the main office before going to their destination. All visitors must sign into the Visitor’s Log and take a “Visitor” sticker. As part of our Crisis Management plan, all staff is expected to question any visitor to the building without a pass. Any visitor without a pass can cause the school to go into a soft lockdown. We thank you for your part in making our school a safe learning environment.
Progress Reports will be distributed to students in Grades 1-8 on Thursday, February 6. We ask that you sign and return the reports by the following Monday. The teachers will keep these reports on file until the second report card conference. I would like to remind you that all grades are regularly posted on Option C!
Re-registration for 2020-2021
Priority registration for current students and their relatives began on Tuesday, January 14. Families must be current on this year’s tuition to register for next year. It is imperative that you return the form as soon as possible to ensure that your child has a seat for the 2020-2021 school year.

Once you have registered for next year, you can apply online for a Diocesan scholarship. Families who apply during the first round are the only ones eligible for the maximum scholarship.
