The year of the pandemic can't stop Santa Claus from visiting his friends at OLOL. We had a great Saturday morning with Santa. Merry Christmas OLOL! Thanks Santa and all our 8th and 7th grade elves! A special thanks to Mrs. Reilly and her team of parent helpers from the 7th & 8th grade!
Traditions have taken on a new meaning during 2020 and at OLOL we were determined to keep our Grandparents Day and reflect on all that we have to be grateful for this year.
See our recorded event below.
Thank you for your support of this year's Book Fair! We earned $500 to spend on books for the library and our families purchased 102 books for the classrooms from our teacher wish lists! These books will be shipped to the classrooms in early January. It was different this year, like everything else, but we have great books to put in our classrooms and more to purchase for our library thanks to the generosity of our OLOL families. Thank you!!
Even though the Book Fair push is over, the site remains open if you want to purchase any books and 15% of the proceeds go to OLOL.
Congratulations to 8th grade student, Christopher Walsh! Over 300 essays were submitted, the competition was stiff and OLOL is so proud of Chris and his accomplishment. We are thankful to the Catholic Business Network and their support of Catholic school students pursuing Catholic high school. Chris has been awarded a one time amount of $1,500 that will go toward his freshman year at a Catholic high school.
His winning essay can be read in the attached file below. OLOL is so proud of you Chris!
This year again the students in grades 3 to 8 competed in an essay contest, "Why I Love My Catholic School". The submissions were outstanding! The students wrote wonderful things about their teachers, friends, and the influence of faith in their lives. A winner was chosen from the 3rd-5th group and the 6th-8th group. The winning essays were written by Maria Foley in the 5th grade and Jude McGroarty in the 8th grade.
Maria Foley- Grade 5
Jude McGroarty- Grade 8
