Dear OLMC Community,

What an AMAZING Catholic Schools Week we just had! If you are not following us on social media, please do so as we posted so many fun shots from the week! Between the Bingo, Falcon Fun Run, Field Day, Mass and the Eucharistic Procession, it was a pretty incredible week. It wrapped up with Casino Night on Saturday, and then our student led Masses on Sunday. Thank you to everyone for making this Catholic school so special. The Fun Run fundraiser winners will be announced at school on Monday and we will post our fundraising total next week.

The Mother/Son Kickball is this coming Saturday! It is always a lot of fun!

The Dads’ Club is having a Fundraiser at Peter Piper Pizza on Fri, Feb 17 from 4:00-8:00pm. They make heart shaped pizzas, a whipped cream eating contest, raffles and other fun activities. Essentially it is a small party just for OLMC! We also have SCRIP at 10% rebate. Pick some up before you go!

The 8th grade will be selling Valentine's Day Candy Grams before school Monday, February 6th through Friday, February 10th. Buy a candy gram for your friends, teachers and children to share how much you care about and appreciate them! They will begin selling at 7:40am. The candy grams are $1.00 each.

Conference slips were sent home on Friday or will be sent home on Monday. February conferences are not mandatory. Please sign and return even if you decline a meeting. 

There is a Home and School Coffree this Friday at 8:15am. Mr. Groseta will be talking about the Universal ESA Scholarship. 

The Spirit Store is open through Tue, Feb 7, we are taking orders for some fun new hats and many other spirit items!

The Eucharistic Miracles Display will be in the school Library the week of Feb 13-17. Parents are welcome to view the exhibit Tue, Feb 14 - Fri, Feb 17 from 7:30 to 8:05 in the morning. After that, it is closed for the students to view. It will also be open on Sat, Feb 18 and Sun, Feb 19 in McCready Hall if you are unable to attend in the morning. In addition, as a fundraiser, the St. Therese group will be selling St Carlos Acutis shirts & stickers that may be purchased through the link. The proceeds from this sale will go towards the new crucifix in the Adoration chapel. 

Have a great week!
