Dear OLMC Community,

Thank you to all the families who supported the Dads’ Club food fundraiser on Thursday! It was a great success! 

Iowa Test of Basic Skills This week the children will be taking the ITBS tests. These tests are helpful and give you (and us) another data point on where your child is academically. Please have your child/children get to bed early, eat breakfast and arrive on time to school! We will begin testing immediately after the announcements at 8:15am. If your child is late, he/she will not be allowed into the classroom until that assessment is complete and will have to make it up later. Make up tests will be the next week and the children will have to miss class to take the tests they missed. It is very important to be on time! Also- please do not pull your children from class early for appointments.

Wednesday, January 26, 2022 marked an anniversary. Though, as anniversaries go, it is one to simply remember, rather than celebrate. It was on January 26, 2020, that Arizona recorded the first confirmed case of COVID-19. Since that time, we have been through a lot! No one would have predicted that 2 years hence, we would still be battling the coronavirus. Even one year ago, January 30, 2021, when the 7-day average for cases in Maricopa County was 2622, we couldn’t have imagined that on January 30, 2022 the 7-day average would be 6075! Yet, there is reason to be optimistic! 6075 cases is a significant decrease from the 13,742 7-day average recorded just two weeks before (EPI Curve).
