Thank you for an incredible start to the school year. Our students are hard working as they master new skills and work toward their goals. We’ve already organized two incredible fundraisers for Autism Speaks and for the hurricane relief effort in the Bahamas. I am always in awe of our incredible students and their supportive families. After an incredible Back to School Night and Home Academy meeting, I am so excited about the events of the upcoming school year. Please continue reading to learn a bit more about what to expect for the rest of the month.
Home Academy Association
Thank you for your AMAZING support and huge turnout during the Home Academy Association’s first meeting last Thursday. In order to create an optimal school environment for our students, we have proposed several committees for parents to join. For example, if you have a passion for taking care of the environment, consider joining the Green Committee to help reduce our global footprint!
To learn more, please e-mail email@example.com to learn how you can be a part of the ever-evolving HAA. Be sure to visit the HAA’s website at: https://olmercyca.org/home-academy-association/ to view the entire list of proposed committees.
At Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy we want parents to get involved in our school community. This platform gives families the opportunity to join in making OLMCA the best it can be. We value your input and need your help to achieve all our goals!
OptionC Parent Alert System
OptionC is our learning management and parent alert system. It provides an online homeroom for students and parents to retrieve information such as grades and attendance records for Grades 1-8.
Our school also uses a parent notification system through OptionC. The system will allow us to send you messages via voicemail, email, and text messages. We will be able to notify you of important information, school closings, delayed starts and other types of emergencies automatically.
A parent survey was distributed last week. It is imperative that you return the survey so that the office has the most up-to-date information about the best way to communicate with your family.
OLMCA School Masses
A friendly reminder that OLMCA school Mass will be the regularly scheduled at 8:30 a.m. on each First Friday of the month.
This will allow students to begin understanding of the Sacred Heart devotion as well as provide a consistent schedule for all involved so more of our parents and families may attend. Following Mass, certain grades will return to school while others will remain for the five minute prayer service for Exposition.
We look forward to sharing these masses with our Parish and school community. Our next monthly school Mass will be on Friday, October 4 at 8:30 a.m. for students in Grades K-8. All dates will be posted on the school calendar.
Seat Availability-Pre-K For All
We still have seats available for Pre-K for All. If you know a family that might be interested in our program, please contact Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy directly. If your child will be 4 years old on or before December 31, they will be eligible for our enriching and fun full day program! We are more than happy to answer or questions or schedule a tour.
Thank you from Ms. Korinne Manno
I would like to take this time to whole heartily thank my Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy family for the donations in honor of my Son Gabriel’s walk for Autism Speaks. This year with the help of all of you I was able to raise $700 for Autism Speaks. With your donation you haven’t just helped Autism Speaks further autism research, increase awareness about autism spectrum disorders, and advocate on behalf of people with autism and their families like myself. You’ve also offered invaluable help and hope to thousands of people who lives are touched by autism everyday. Autism affects 1 in 59 children in the U.S. Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest autism fundraising event powered by love and built on the strength of the community and individuals like all of you! Together we are enhancing lives today and accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Thank you again for your contribution,
“May the Lord now show you kindness and faithfulness, and I too will show you the same favor because you have done this.” 2 Samuel 2:6
Have a great week!
