JUST A FEW DAYS AWAY!!! OLOS students are participating in the Science Fair this year. PACKETS WERE SENT HOME PREVIOUSLY THAT CONTAINED INFORMATION REGARDING PROJECT GUIDELINES. PLEASE USE THIS AS REFERENCE. Students in grades 3rd through 8th are required to do a project, which will be part of their science grade. Younger students are encouraged to do projects for show. Boards are $4 each. If you need a board, please put payment (to OLOS) in a marked envelope and send to the office. Students in grades 6th, 7th, & 8th are required to also do a paper with their project. In these grades (6,7,8) one winner will be chosen to attend the diocesan fair in each of the categories of Life, Physical & Earth Science (3 winners total will go to diocese). Each student in these grades should prominently designate on the back of their board into which category their project should be placed. THE OLOS SCIENCE FAIR IS THIS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22. All projects and papers will be due for display on that day. The diocesan fair will be held March 19th.
The OLOS Student Council will be sponsoring a “Dress In Green” Day for St. Patrick’s Day again this year. We thought we would get the word out early so that you have more of a chance to be creative and find “green” items. We will choose best dressed winners from each class – one boy & one girl.
St. Patrick’s Day is March 17th. Thanks to all who supported our Valentine Candygram sales. You are appreciated!
Change of menu – Thursday, February 24 we will have Pork Roast, Mashed Potatoes with gravy, green beans & bread.
Our thanks to…all the FANTASTIC ROOM PARENTS for making our Valentine’s parties SO SWEET!
