Good evening,

The Dads’ Club Movie Night was a success. Thank you to all of the families who came out and enjoyed the movie. Unfortunately, my husband and I were under the weather, so I am sad we missed it! This is always so much fun!

The Book Fair was also a huge success. Funds raised through this event will go to purchasing new books for the library! Thank you to all of the parents who also supported the Teacher Wish Lists for books!

Dear Parents,

Thank you to everyone who helped support the Gala! It was such a wonderful evening! There are so many families who donated auction items, who helped solicit donations, who put the baskets together, set up, cleaned up, and of course attended the Gala on Saturday Night. I am truly overwhelmed by the generosity!

This week the children will have a half day on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (12:30 dismissal). They may wear a spirit shirt and their uniform bottoms all three days.

Dear OLMC Community,

Thank you to Home & School and all of the volunteers who made the Trunk or Treat such a great event! It is so nice to have these community events back at school. It was great to enjoy an afternoon in a safe environment sharing food and fellowship! I think the adults had just as much fun as the children! 

Tomorrow we will have Mass for All Saints’ Day. Please have your student wear his/her Mass uniform. Many of the young men are forgetting their pants and belts on Mass days. 

The first trimester will end this week. Report cards will be emailed home on Tuesday, November 10.

Dear OLMC Community,

Thank you for your continued support for the Gala. The donations are so appreciated! We are still selling tickets to attend the event. Please purchase your tickets at Night to Soar Tickets.

Thank you to all who registered to decorate trunks and have donated candy. Unfortunately, at this time we have very few trunks. Your decorations do not have to be elaborate, just fun for the kids! Please consider decorating your trunk and if you have not donated your bag of candy, please do so!
