Dear OLL School Community,
The start of a new quarter provides an opportunity to set a goal with your student.Working toward a goal can energize your student, and if the goal is a good one, can create a sense of excitement.
Here are a few points to remember when setting a goal for your student:
-Ask your student to think of the one thing he or she would like to accomplish this
year-a goal must be something your student believes in and wants. Then write it down!
-A goal must say exactly what the student wants to accomplish.
-Be sure the goal will stretch the child, but also be attainable.
-Set a reasonable time frame for achieving the goal.
Be sure the goal is really the student’s goal. Allow for effort and satisfaction, and sometimes even disappointment and frustration. This as all part of the learning and growing process. If you need help in deciding a goal for next quarter you can visit with our fine teaching staff.
Thanks to the OLL Booster Club and all the coaches for the many hours spent in preparing and coaching our students. Every night and weekend there are coaches doing their best to make sure our students learn new skills and represent us well. This effort is indeed noticed and appreciated.
The student government continues to go smoothly and provides student input about our school. I appreciate the sincerity and dedication that the student government has shown and the effort put into the school store and lollipop sales. Last month the officers of the student government took the profits from the school store to the grocery store and did a great job of buying products for the St. Vincent DePaul Center.
The Church will soon move into a new season, Ordinary Time. In it the priest wears the color green which symbolize growth and life. Ordinary Time celebrates all aspects of our faith.It provides a time to focus on the healing, hopeful, and saving mission of our Church. Ordinary time continues until lent, and then once again after Easter. It is the longest of the Church seasons. Ash Wednesday is March 5th.
Thanks for all you do for our school.
