Dear OLMC Family:
What a gift it is to be back at school with all of the children and staff! It's like Christmas came early for me! Every single child made me a card or decorated my door or prayed (or all of the above) during my illness, and there truly is no greater gift to me than to have the love and prayers of your children. Thank you so much for raising them to be who they are, and for gracing OLMC with them.
This week's Quick Hits are plentiful! Please read them over very carefully.
I would like to also invite all of you to our First Friday Mass this Friday, December 1st, at 9:15 a.m. Our friends in Grade 3 will be hosting the Mass, and they have been preparing so much! Friday's Mass will also include the installation of new children's choir members! Friday is also SCHOOL SPIRIT DAY, as we launch our basketball season! Students and staff may dress down for free if they wear green, gold, both green and gold, OLMC spirit wear, or gym uniforms. Our basketball athletes are asked to wear their jerseys with comfy pants so that they stand out to all of us that day! Many students will be making spirit posters for us to display at our new home court at Holy Angels gym! We can't wait! (FIrst game begins Saturday, December 2 at 10 a.m.!)
Please also note that forthcoming tomorrow is a ONE CALL regarding changes the bus company has just made. These changes will affect many students, so please be sure to pay careful attention to that notice tomorrow. We are waiting until tomorrow due to needed finalized information from the bus company.
Finally, please remember that this weekend begins Advent, the beautiful liturgical season in which we prepare the way of our Lord. Our teachers and children are going to be exploring some special initiatives during Advent that you will undoubtedly hear about from the children. We love this time of year, as it truly reminds us that our school was founded on the teachings of a little baby born in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago. What a miraculous mystery we have to celebrate.
May God bless and keep you healthy!
My love and prayers,
