Happy Friday OLOL!
Today we think of and pray for the 8th graders receiving the sacrament of Confirmation this evening. As they become adult members of the church we reflect on the incredible journey of our oldest students and the amazing transformation and growth they have made in their time at Our Lady of Lourdes. We are so proud of all our 8th graders and will keep them in our prayers today in a special way.
To clarify for all our families, there are updates from the CDC, State of MD, and Montgomery County regarding COVID precautions and safety requirements, at Our Lady of Lourdes we will not change our current procedures. We will continue to follow the protocols put in place for this school year throughout our last day of school.
Next week is our last dinner out at California Tortilla! Mark your calendars now and make your plans for dinner out next Wednesday, May 19! See the flyer on our home page for details.
Remember, if you haven't had an opportunity to support this year's Annual Fund you can still contribute. This has been a difficult year for fundraising as we haven't had a chance to come together for traditional fundraising events. We have reached just over $62,000 in donations this year, and about half of that was from our very successful Read-a-thon. If you are in a position to support our Annual Fund this year please consider doing so before the close of this fiscal year on June 30. This summer we will be updating some student technology, repairing and painting in classrooms, and renovating two rooms to create our new art and music rooms. Donate to the Annual Fund today.
Have a lovely May weekend!
