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.
- Your child needs to pack a water bottle for school. It is getting hot and they need to remain hydrated.
- 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.
- 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.
- The last day of school has been moved to Thursday, May 27.
