Dear OLMC Community,

This upcoming week we will have Learning Labs and Enrichment as usual. 

Every month, a different grade brings in food for the I-Help program that helps feed the homeless in Tempe. This month is the 5th graders turn. Parents of 5th graders, please see your email for the sign up- we are still in need of a few food items.

Catholic Schools Week is coming up January 29-February 6. We will open the re-enrollment for current school families during that time and all that enroll before Sunday, February 6 will pay the discounted early enrollment fee of $150.00 instead of the usual $300. After February 6, the enrollment fee will be $300.00. I will email home a link on Friday, January 27.

Dear OLMC Community!

I wanted to begin by thanking everyone for the generous FFT gift for Christmas and all of the kind letters and cards. It was greatly appreciated!

This upcoming week there will be a half day on Friday with a 12:30pm dismissal. As always the children may wear a spirit shirt but their jacket must be OLMC outerwear.

Nurse David has written a Nurse’s Notes this week so please take the opportunity to read this information...CLICK HERE. We are not making any policy changes to our plan as we have been very fortunate as to not have transmission ever at the school. We will continue to do what we have been doing.

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.
