Friday Newsletter 1-30-15
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK: Thank you so much to all parents, students, teachers, and volunteers who helped make Catholic Schools Week this year such a success! We cannot recall a year in when we have had so much help from the community with the daily events – especially the staff and senior dinner day. Our standby helpers were here, along with a few new faces! Please know that you are all very much appreciated!
CSW CLOSING: Remember that we are ending up CSW with the potluck dinner and movie after the 5:00 pm Mass this Saturday evening. Please remember that all parish and community members are invited to join us, along with extended family. Food categories are as follows:
Adrian – Evers: meat/main dish
Goetz – Lage: potato/vegetable dish
Lepper – Schrimpf: pasta salad or salad
Schulte – Wood: dessert
ITALIAN FEAST: If you need more tickets, please contact the office. Reminder to families – please send in $5 per child for the classroom baskets (or Mizzou/Cardinals items). Additionally, each family is asked to donate one item of value to place directly on the auction. You can either purchase items or get items donated from local businesses or friends. If you know of someone in direct sales such as Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple etc, this is a great way for them to gain a new customer. Ask them for a donation and be sure to include their business card or catalog. Families may also go together and purchase a bigger item for the auction as well. Please send all money and items into the office. Thank you for your support!
8TH GRADE RETREAT – DRIVERS NEEDED: The 8th grade retreat is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 19th at Folk, MO. We are in need of drivers/chaperones for the ten eighth graders. The cost of the retreat is $7 per student. Please send payment into the office in a marked envelope (checks made payable to OLOSS). We must have all payments and driver offers by Feb. 4th. Please call or send to the office a note with your offer to drive. Thanks to Gina Adrian, our first volunteer. Students will depart from OLOS around 7:30 am and probably return sometime shortly after 3:00 pm.
CATHOLIC BOWL: The three OLOS basketball teams will be involved in the Catholic Bowl tournament, which begins Feb. 16th, in
. If you or
your child would like to order the official Catholic Bowl shirt, you can go
online @ cmpal.org, and order through their website. Orders must be submitted
by Feb. 6th. Good luck Cougars! Jefferson
SCIENCE FAIR: OLOS Science Fair will be held Thursday, Feb. 12th. Students in grades 3-8 are required to do a project (experiment) at home for this, and it will be part of their science grade. Students in 6th through 8th grade are required to submit a paper with their project and are eligible to participate in the diocesan science fair and should make their project in one of the three categories of Life, Physical, or Earth science. We highly encourage all students to work individually; however, if two students work together they must be in the same grade. Students in younger grades may also enter a project in the fair if they so wish. Guideline information was sent from the classroom teacher. Boards available at a cost of $4 per board. Sent payment through the office. (Checks payable to OLOS.)
