Dear OLMC Community,

First I want to wish all of the Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters and Aunts a very Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you are having a wonderful day as you deserve it!

The beginning of May has started off so beautifully! On May 1st we had our last two Confirmation and First Holy Communion Masses. The children did a beautiful job and I am so thankful for the teachers who worked so hard to prepare them.

Dear OLMC Community,

Yesterday we had our last round of Confirmations and First Communion ceremonies. The children were amazing- it is so beautiful to see them celebrate the sacraments with each other. I am so thankful to Mrs. Abbott and Mrs. Hartley for how well they prepared the children- it certainly showed!

Thank you for all of the well wishes, cards, flowers and drinks for Principal Appreciation! Mr. Groseta and I felt very loved! You are too generous!

Dear OLMC Community,

Thank you to all of the parents who ran for the School Advisory Board. I appreciate their willingness to commit the time to serve on the board. There are three open positions on the School Board. One is voted in by the community, one is chosen by the Principal and the last is chosen by the Pastor. The three new members of the School Advisory Board are Mrs. Stephanie Hicks, Mr. Scott Keppel, and Mrs. Bankston. 

Thank you to everyone who supported the Jimmy John’s Fundraiser. It was by far the most successful food fundraising event. Over $1000.00 was raised for the school.

Dear Parents,

This next week is the start of ITBS week. Children in grades 1st through 8th will be administered the test. The third and sixth graders will take an additional test, the coGAT. We will begin testing first thing in the morning, so please have your child/children to school on time. These are long days for the children. Remind them to eat breakfast and pack a water bottle! They also need sharpened, #2 pencils.

Congratulations to Emma Baker who was the recipient of the 2021 Catholic Community Foundation Scholarship for $17,000! For her eighth grade year $1,000 will go towards her tuition at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and $4,000 a year will be sent to the Catholic High School which she will be attending. What a huge honor!

Dear OLMC Community,

I hope you had a beautiful Easter with your family. As we are moving into the home stretch of the school year, I have some reminders.

  1. Your child needs to pack a water bottle for school. It is getting hot and they need to remain hydrated.
  2. If you come to pick up your child early from school, call the office before you leave the house so we can have your child/children ready in the office. 
  3. Students in grades 1-3 will begin practice ITBS tests this week. The teachers in the upper grades will go over test taking skills in preparation. The ITBS testing week is April 19-23. Please arrive at school on time and try not to schedule any appointments so the children do not miss a portion of the test.
  4. The last day of school has been moved to Thursday, May 27.

Dear Parents,

Thank you to all of the Dads who came out to pull up the sport court for the Easter Masses. I really appreciate your time and strength! 

As for the change in the mask mandate, while it is good to see as more people are getting vaccinated that the numbers are going down, our mitigation strategies have been working, and therefore we are not making any changes. 

Holy Week is upon us! The last collection for the Sisters’ Biblioteca in Peru is tomorrow, March 29th. Please send in your donation with your student. You may also donate online here: Donations for the Sisters

Dear OLMC Families,

There will be a change in the school calendar. Typically we have a day reserved to set up for the festival. We held off on identifying a date as we were unsure if a festival would take place. Since we are not having one, we will take that extra day at the end of the year. Therefore, the last day of school will now be Thursday, May 27. 

Monday morning we will have a fire drill at 8:30am.
