NO SCHOOL THIS MONDAY, MARCH 12, DUE TO DIOCESAN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
STUDENT DAY: WE HAVE A DATE! We will celebrate our final (delayed!) day of CSW 2018 – Student Day – on Monday, March 19th. We will be bowling and enjoying movies and fun activities throughout the day. This will be a dress down day.
IMPROMPTU DRILLS: OLOSS will be having several emergency drills throughout the next weeks. If your child mentions them (or even if they don’t), you may take the opportunity to discuss the subject. We have tornado, fire, earthquake, and intruder/lockdown drills.
EASTER EGG HUNT: We will have our annual Easter Egg Hunt on Wednesday, March 28th. Each child in grades PK – 6th should bring in one dozen candy-filled eggs to the classroom, marked with your child’s name. Please wait until Monday, March 26 before sending those in. The 7th & 8th graders will be hiding the eggs for the classes, so you may remember them with some treats as well. Candy that doesn’t melt easily is best. We also have students with peanut allergies, so we ask that no peanut product be sent. Thanks so much!
WEDNESDAY – Changed from a dress down day to a dress down SPIRIT day, due to visit by KRCG that day.
MASS CHANGE: We will have Mass on Monday, March 19th (the feast of St. Joseph), and we will not have Mass on Thursday, March 22nd. 2nd grade will do the ministry on the 19th.
PHOTOGRAPHER NEEDED: Traditionally, the 8th graders take a day out in April for picture taking. We are looking for a parent or someone willing to take the pictures. Please let Mrs. Pleus or Rosie know if you would be willing to help out, along with some dates that will work for your schedule. Thanks!
