We have dress down days Monday and Friday this upcoming week. The normal dress down for a dollar day has been changed to a dress down for a quarter day (on Friday) due to end of school year expenses you may be experiencing with all the field trips, bills, etc.

Special congratulations to the five 2nd graders receiving their First Eucharist this Sunday. We recognize Macy Adrian, Sara Beck, Gracie Evers, Tori Evers, and Faith Kempker as they take this most important step in their faith-filled journey. Please pray for these girls and for all receiving their First Eucharist this weekend.

The preschool through 4th graders will be taking their Reading Counts trip to Bonkers, in Columbia on May 8th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. The $4 paid includes admission, a cookie & a drink. We will eat a picnic lunch at Memorial Park in Jefferson City around noon and then come back to watch a movie in the gym.

The sketches are on display in the lunch room, so if you get a chance, check them out!

Many thanks to Jason & Jessica Parr (Corner Market) for the good deals they have been giving the school on pizzas & soda. The Parrs donated pizza for the Student Council to sell at the Book Fair and gave us amazing deals on pizza/soda/ice-cream for the field trip this week. Please support the Corner Market with your business and offer
the Parrs your personal thanks when you see them. We appreciate you Jason & Jessica!

OCTOBER BABY:  This is a fantastic movie offered at Summit Plaza Theater for the next couple weeks, dealing with a young woman who finds out when she is 19 that not only is she adopted, but that she survived an abortion attempt when she was 24 weeks in the womb. It is rated PG-13, but has only one short sequence that is mildly suggestive & no offensive language or violence. It does not touch on the abortion procedure at all, just emotionally how the girl deals with what she has found out. It is wonderful because it speaks to forgiveness and the power that it can give you to go on with life without those burdens. I would suggest it for kids 4th-5th grade on up (?). The cost for adult ticket is $6, $1 of which is donated to the pro-life cause. Times are as follows:  Fri – 4, 6:30, 9; Sat – 1, 4, 6:30, 9; Sun – 1, 4, 6:30; Mon-Thurs – 6:30 pm. It is approximately 2 hours long.

If you see the ladies that teach Liturgical Music – Betty Nally, Theresa Bax (Roger) & Judy Wieberg – please give them your thanks. They have donated endless hours teaching our children to sing in Mass. They come one afternoon a week to prepare the students for Mass each week. They have also been sponsoring an “OLOSs Got Talent”, where the students could sing/perform. Many of the students have received prizes from them this year, and on their last visit, many more received nice gift bags of prizes. Thank you ladies – you are AWESOME – we ALL appreciate you!!!

The last day of school is set for Tuesday. May 15th. This will be a half day – dismissing at 12:00 Noon, with the awards ceremony at 9:00 am. The PRESCHOOL GRADUATION will be in-line with the awards ceremony and will take place at approximately 10:00 – 10:30 am (after the main awards are over).

Remember to return your Friday Folder on Monday.
Have a great weekend!
