BOOK FAIR! Our annual Scholastic Book Fair night will be Tuesday, Sept. 11, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. Students will be able to shop and participate in fun and games and earn bonus reading counts points. Make plans now to attend this fun-filled evening!
GRANDPARENTS DAY! On Wednesday, Sept. 12, we will celebrate Grandparents Day at OLOS School. Please contact grandparents now so that they may mark their calendar. If grandma or grandpa can’t make it, feel free to come yourself or ask a “substitute grandparent” to enjoy the morning with your child. We will celebrate Mass at 8:00 am (students may sit with grandparents at church), then we will move to the school gymnasium for fun and fellowship. Grandparents may also shop the bookfair with their grandchild if they so wish. The morning festivities should conclude around 10:00 – 10:30.
COLLECTION ENVELOPES FOR WEDNESDAY MASS: This year we are asking each student to bring in a bag of change from home to keep at school. On Tuesday afternoons the students will get their envelope ready in the classroom. This could be something the student has earned himself/herself (best) or loose change provided by the parent. We will begin this process after the picnic, so please send in your child’s money before Wednesday, to the classroom, in a marked container or bag. Thank you for your help!
EMERGENCY DRILLS: We will be conducting emergency drills over the next several weeks, continuing with the tornado drill next week. Classroom teachers discuss these drills with students beforehand, but it may be a good idea to discuss these at home with your younger children ahead of time.
HEALTH SCREENINGS: Miller County Health nurses will be here on September 21st to screen the students for hearing, vision, height, weight, to do head checks, and to review immunization records.
PICNIC WEEKEND!!! As we all know, this weekend our parish hosts its annual Parish Picnic. Please pray for good weather (cooler) for this, our biggest fundraiser of the year, and perhaps some rain beforehand to settle the dust and green it up a little. Please see that your children all get to their assigned jobs and remain on duty the entire time they are scheduled. Also, if you are able to help set up/clean up on Friday, Saturday, and/or Monday, please pitch in and help out – which is always so appreciated! May God bless us all and bless all of our guests on this working holiday weekend! Happy Labor Day everyone, and we’ll see you back on TUESDAY!
PLEASE RETURN YOUR FOLDER ON TUESDAY!
HAVE A GREAT LABOR DAY WEEKEND!
