We Need You! From social gatherings, like our pig roast and father/daughter dance, to outreach efforts like our open houses and tours, to service projects like caroling at Victoria Mews and blessing bags, we always welcome your input and participation! Click HERE for a month-by-month calendar of events. As each event approaches we will send out more information and dedicated sign-up forms.
OLMC Parents are invited to contribute to this year's photo collection! Below you'll find a link to a shared Google folder that is accessible to all OLMC parents and staff (for privacy, only those with this link will be able to view the contents). The purpose is to collect and share the pictures we take throughout the year with one another -- by June, we'll all have a lot to look back on together.
As you'll see, we've created categories for your convenience, but if you have pictures that don't seem to fit into particular folder just upload them to the general folder. So whenever you take OLMC-related pictures, please remember our shared folder and upload them so everyone can enjoy! (Please note - some pictures might be used in displays around the school and church. If you'd prefer not to have your pictures used in public spaces, please make a note of it to: email@example.com)
Share Your Ideas for Future HSA Initiatives
We want to hear from you! We know our community is blessed with many people of tremendous talent who have great ideas for the school, and we greatly value your input. In order to keep the process for adding new initiatives as efficient and manageable as possible, please use this form to share your thoughts. You can drop it off to Mrs. Rotondo at the front desk or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll address it at the next HSA meeting. Thank you for your enthusiastic participation!
Guidelines for Events Held on the OLMC Premises
Our school is growing by leaps and bounds and becoming more tight knit than ever - and that’s a great thing! As social gatherings become increasingly common, it becomes more important than ever to provide families with a set of shared rules for student conduct in order to ensure the safety of all children and safeguard our common spaces. To that end, we have adopted clear guidelines for the benefit of everyone.
Please review these guidelines and discuss them with your children. Please remind them that our school’s expectations of civility and good conduct apply whether or not they are in uniform. Most importantly, please impress upon them that these rules are in place to safeguard their wellbeing.
