Friday Newsletter 10-30-15
THANK YOU! Thank you so much room parents – for the great activities and refreshments for the parties today! We could not do it without your wonderful help!
SPORTS PICTURES: The volleyball & basketball teams will have their pictures taken (along with clubs, etc.) on Wed., Nov. 18th. We are in need of a volunteer parent from any of those teams to help with pictures. You will receive a $25 gift certificate towards your child’s sports picture. Please contact Rosie in the office if you could help out. Also, volleyball girls – go ahead and turn in your uniforms with your name on them, and we will hold them for the team picture. Make sure to send them back – we want to have the whole team in uniform for the picture. Basketball uniforms will be assigned next week and held in the office until picture day. Order forms for team pictures will be sent home next Friday.
COOKIE DOUGH SALES:
will once again be selling cookie dough. We will be doing this to accrue the
funds to send all of our teachers to the NCEA conference, which will be held in
OLOS School in
the Spring of 2017. This is the first time in many years that the NCEA
conference is so close. We will begin sales on Thursday, Nov. 5, and end sales
on Monday, Nov. 16. Cookie dough will be delivered, to be picked up by the
parents, on Tuesday, December 1st. ALL ORDERS MUST BE PICKED
UP – WE HAVE NO FREEZER SPACE TO STORE IT! St. Louis
COOKIE DOUGH DELIVERY: We will need parent help for filling the cookie dough orders when it is delivered on Tuesday, December 1st. Approximate time for delivery is 12:00 – 1:00 pm. Help will be needed for sorting early and for helping parents find and check their orders until approximately 5:30. Help during any of this time – even if it’s just an hour, is greatly appreciated. Please send a note, or call the office, with your offer to help.
CALLLING ALL MILITARY! All active military and veterans, their families, and the whole community, are invited to join the school children for a patriotic rosary on Wednesday, November 11th, Veterans’ Day. We will begin at 2:15 pm, and meet at the flagpole, weather permitting (alternate site – gym). Please pass this invitation to family, friends, and neighbors. The school children will be wearing red/white/blue and camo that day, and all are invited to do the same, or dress in military attire. We look forward to having the veterans with us on Veterans’ Day and we thank them for their service to our country!
BASKETBALL TEAMS: This year,
will have two teams, one JV boys’ team, consisting of 7th & 8th
grade boys, and one JV girls’ team, consisting of 6th, 7th,
& 8th graders. We will let you know when practices will begin.
Remember, your child must have the following three items turned into the office
to practice or play ball: $20 per
family/year sports fee, athletic form, and a physical. OLOS School
