Dear OLMC Community,

I hope you had a beautiful Easter with your family. As we are moving into the home stretch of the school year, I have some reminders.

  1. Your child needs to pack a water bottle for school. It is getting hot and they need to remain hydrated.
  2. If you come to pick up your child early from school, call the office before you leave the house so we can have your child/children ready in the office. 
  3. Students in grades 1-3 will begin practice ITBS tests this week. The teachers in the upper grades will go over test taking skills in preparation. The ITBS testing week is April 19-23. Please arrive at school on time and try not to schedule any appointments so the children do not miss a portion of the test.
  4. The last day of school has been moved to Thursday, May 27.

Finally, many of the tuition scholarships are open. Please take a few minutes to complete and many of them are free. Over 80% of our families receive financial aid. If you have a child who has a MET/IEP, who has been adopted or in foster care, reach out to me or to Rita Villegas (she handles the tuition billing) at rita@olmctempe.com and we can give you more information about scholarships specific for these children. If you or your spouse are active military there are scholarships for this too. Below is a list of some of the general Student Tuition Organizations:

Looking forward to seeing the children tomorrow!
