Dear OLMC Community,

This next week is a very busy week! We will be kicking off Catholic Schools Week. Below is a schedule and I have attached a printable schedule to hang on your fridge to easily refer to! 

We will be collecting new toys for a Diocesan-wide drive for St. Vincent de Paul. Please bring in any new toy!

Home & School Needs oranges for the children for field day. Please bring your donation to the kitchen in McCready Hall on Thursday so we may wash & cut for the event! If you are able to wash and cut them before you drop them off it would be very helpful, but if not, that’s okay too!

Dear OLMC Community,

Please remember School starts at 8:05am. There has been an influx of late children. When your child is late it not only impacts him/her it also disrupts the entire classroom. The teacher needs to repeat instructions, your child has missed announcements, the other children are distracted, etc. Please be accountable and respect the classroom environment by being on time.

Dear OLMC Community,

It was a wonderful week back to school. The kids have grown so much in the two weeks they were gone! Looking towards this week:


You will be receiving an email about Early Enrollment. We will be giving a 50% discount on the enrollment fee from Monday, January 9 until Friday, January 27. We will then open enrollment to families outside our current school community. Please take the time to read the email in its entirety. There will also be a short video explaining the change in tuition. There will be a 3% increase in tuition and the fees that are usually paid separately in June will now be rolled into tuition. The fees are the same, the tuition increase is 3%. Please see the email tomorrow!

Dear OLMC Community,

Last week we had our Accreditation visit. We received the top-level accreditation status, so they will not return again for six years- this is the best result you can get! They could not stop raving about the children, teachers, staff and community. 

I want to say a special thank you to the Home and School who provided exceptional hospitality to the visitors. 

There will be no Learning Labs this week.

Thank you to so many families who came out for the Movie Night on Saturday! I appreciate all the hard work the Dads’ Club put into making this evening a success. 

Thank you to the Home and School Board who served wonderful lunches to the faculty and staff this week before conferences. The teachers really enjoyed it! 

They also enjoyed meeting with all of you to discuss your child’s/children’s progress during conferences. 

Our Taste of Kindergarten was a success and we are excited to begin enrolling the new kinders for next year. The “big school” will begin the enrollment process before Christmas this year for returning families. More information to come!
