Dear OLL School Community,
I should thank you, parents, more often for all you do for OLL. I know Catholic education can be a difficult financially and a sacrifice. But I firmly believe that what we are doing at OLL is special. We are combining Catholic ideals with high academic expectations. We are working to form the future leaders of our Church and community. We can teach the students solid academic skills and also what God wants us to do. So thank you to all our parents and all supporters of OLL for all you do.
Progress reports can be a powerful tool for parents. These reports let you know how your student is doing right now in their studies. Also, 3-8th grades have constant access to scores through Engrade. I know that in the 4th quarter it can be difficult to keep the focus on school with so much going on. Yet, we are academically rigorous so our teachers will teach until the end of the year and cover as much material as possible. So parental commitment to keeping students focused on school will be vital. You can use the progress reports as a tool to help make goals for the rest of the year. Perhaps homework or studying need a greater focus. Are in-class behaviors hurting the scores? It will help your student to have an academic goal for the end of the year. If you don’t know what that goal should be feel free to ask one of our fine teachers.
As you buy uniforms for next school year please remember all uniform items are to be purchased at a uniform store, or uniform section of a department store.So pants, shirts, and shorts should be uniform pants, shirts, and shorts, not just the correct color.Uniform clothing is cut and styled in such a way that makes it appropriate for our school setting. And uniforms give off a silent message of solidarity and respect, and even minor violations of the policy can be subject to disciplinary action. Also, the optional red shirts for K-6 are on sale at Alamar. Alamar is the exclusive vendor for the red shirts. Alamar is also working with us to create a cardigan sweater option with an embroidered logo for next school year.Keep your eye open for that! Thank you for your support.
If you know a family that would be a good fit here at OLL please have them contact the office. Also, if you are interested in helping with the Home and School Association next year please contact the office.
