The office is experiencing email trouble. The account firstname.lastname@example.org had been hacked. That problem has been fixed, but now I have not been getting some emails that I should be getting. Parents have been telling me that they get the message “rejected by server”. As we try to get this issue resolved, please send any emails to email@example.com followed by a phone call to the office. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
All prospective Preschool and Kindergarten parents: Remember the Informational Meeting scheduled for this Tuesday, March 27th. This short meeting will run from 6:30 to 7:00 pm. Hope to see you there!
Thanks to Missy Beck & Laura Schulte for volunteering to coordinate the 8th grade graduation reception. More help would be appreciated. Please contact someone in the office with your offer to help. All 7th grade parents may be contacted to provide refreshments for this event.
8th grade parents: Cap & gown fees are $8.50, which can be paid at any time. Guidelines for dress: Boys – dress pants, collared shirt, dress shoes, tie is optional; Girls – dresses, no more than 2 inches above the knee, no spaghetti straps showing (may wear shawl to cover). Students will be wearing cap/gown for graduation and awards portion of the reception.
Along with 8th grade graduation, we are looking for an 8th grade parent (or other family member/acquaintance) to coordinate the slide show. Let us know if you or someone you know would be able to help out with this. Sheila Adrian has volunteered to help. Also – 8th graders will need to send in 8 pictures of themselves (generally from little on up to present) or a CD with these images. These will be needed closer to the end of the year.
IT’S TIME TO BUY SOME EGGS!: The preschool through 5th grade students will be enjoying the annual OLOS School Easter Egg Hunt on Wednesday, April 4th. We are asking each student to bring in one dozen candy filled plastic eggs (no chocolate or anything that would melt please). We thought we’d let you know ahead of time so that you can pick them up some time when you’re at the store. We will announce in these notes when we would like them sent in to school. Thank you!
Mark your calendars: The Golf Tournament date has been set for Friday, May 18th. Please see enclosed letter to parents regarding this important fundraiser.
Gardening Committee: It is time again to be getting the school grounds in shape for spring. We will be watching the weather and planning a work night in the very near future. In the meantime, we are hoping to once again come up with a list of “willing workers” – those who will volunteer to water during the summer and pull a few weeds. In previous years we have been able to schedule a person/family for each week during the summer. We hope to get enough volunteers to do that again so that everyone has to do once or twice through the summer. Please write a note, email, or call the office with your offer to help. Lynn Morgan has volunteered to help. Thanks so much for all you do to support OLOS School!
We will be attending Stations of the Cross every Friday throughout Lent at 2:15 pm. Students may leave from church with parent or grandparent, but only with a note from the parent to the classroom teacher. The teacher will then allow the student to bring his/her book bag to church with them.
