Hello OLOL families,
We made it through our first full week of school! It really feels like we are getting back into the swing of things now. We have students working hard in classrooms, playing at recess, running cross county, and more. We have energetic and excited HSA parent representatives organizing events for the year. We are just about 5 days from the beginning of fall and before you know it there will be pumpkins, turkeys, and before long Christmas trees all around us (oops, I might have gotten too far ahead of myself with that last one). It is a wonderful time to be part of a school community and we are all so lucky to share in this Our Lady of Lourdes community.
On Monday, September 20, we will have our Back to School Night. Parents are invited to attend a classroom session with their child's homeroom teacher. Please see the information and link below to sign up. We are limiting the size of each session, so it is important for parents to sign up so that we have a manageable number in each space. Since we will not have a general school meeting, I have recorded a video message for you to watch this weekend. (see the video at the bottom of this post) We look forward to welcoming our families Monday Night.
Have a safe and blessed weekend.
May God go with you,
New Information & Reminders:
Back to School Night- Monday September 20
We will offer three classroom sessions starting at 4:30, 5:00, and 5:30. Please use the link below to visit our Back to School Night webpage and to sign up for your classroom sessions. Parents must sign up online for a session.
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT INFORMATION & SIGN UP SHEET FOR SESSIONS
We have the majority of our students in their daily uniform. We understand there have been some delays, so students who do not have the regular uniform should continue to wear the PE uniform until items arrive. Hopefully everything will be available to arrive in the next week or so.
Please remember to have your students in proper shoes and socks (for the fall/spring uniform that is athletic shoes and white socks). If you are missing any uniform parts, please do not substitute with other "similar" items. Students can wear the PE uniform until all items are available to wear the regular school uniform. You can see all the uniform information in the Parent Handbook or on this website page.
Parent/Student Handbook 2021-2022/ Deadline for form submission is 9/30:
The Parent/Student handbook is ready for all families and the link is below. Please read through the entire handbook and share the information with your children as well (as appropriate based on age). We have one handbook for all families and an additional handbook to cover specific information relating to preschool 3's and 4's. Every family at OLOL needs to complete the Handbook Acknowledgment Form by September 30, 2021. We appreciate your prompt attention to this deadline.
See the handbook pdf files at the bottom of last week's post.
