It seems that January has flown by and we are now in a spring-like beginning to February. The groundhog might be right that we are in for an early Spring. At OLOL we are getting ready for the Spelling Bee and Talent Show, finishing up our Read-a-thon, and Lent is fast approaching. So many wonderful things have been going on including an outstanding Catholic Schools Week, a lovely Faculty & Staff Appreciation Day (filled with cards, food and a half day!), a great day to celebrate our Students, and a Faculty vs. Students volleyball game! Not to mention, we had a spectacular Multicultural Night filled with delicious food, beautiful dancing, and sharing our cultures with one another as the OLOL family. Thank you to everyone for sharing with the community. This has become a well-loved and favorite event over the past two years.
Our Read-a-thon has been an outstanding success so far! The students are reading and recording their minutes, and families and friends have been supporting the cause financially. We are just about to reach over $21,000 and donations keep coming in! The Read-a-thon continues through Friday, Feb. 7. Thanks for all the support of this wonderful event!!
