Dear OLMC Community,

This upcoming week we will have Learning Labs and Enrichment as usual. 

Every month, a different grade brings in food for the I-Help program that helps feed the homeless in Tempe. This month is the 5th graders turn. Parents of 5th graders, please see your email for the sign up- we are still in need of a few food items.

Catholic Schools Week is coming up January 29-February 6. We will open the re-enrollment for current school families during that time and all that enroll before Sunday, February 6 will pay the discounted early enrollment fee of $150.00 instead of the usual $300. After February 6, the enrollment fee will be $300.00. I will email home a link on Friday, January 27.
