The Our Lady of Lourdes Annual School Council Report is attached for your review.
OLOL Year End Message: June 2018
Flames-It has been another wonderful year at OLOL! We would like to take this opportunity to thank our families for your ongoing support and assisting us in making this year a spectacular one.
We look forward to seeing everyone again in September. Our first day for grades one to eight students is Tuesday, September 4th, 2018. Similar to last year, all families are invited to meet us on the blacktop prior to our 8:30 a.m. bell. Our bus students will automatically be directed.
Teachers will be on the back blacktop with grade level signs and class lists. Students simply make their way toward their teacher. Once teachers have their attendance taken they will make their way inside. This assists our students in getting to their new classes quickly, establishing a comfortable classroom environment.
If it is raining our primary students will gather in the gym, junior students will go to the library and intermediates simply head straight upstairs to their class.
I would like to personally take this opportunity to thank our families for the support you have shown myself and the Lourdes community over the past five years. It will be difficult to say good-bye to this incredible group of staff, students, parents and parish members. My past five years at OLOL have left me with wonderful memories and personal connections that will not be forgotten.
Other staffing changes are also imminent as some teachers are moving to new board positions, and different schools. Please join me in wishing the following staff all the best in their new roles: Mrs. Pereira, Mrs. Amorim, Ms. Somerton, Mrs. Kowalski, Mr. Tubbe, and Mrs. Schroeder. We will miss these individuals at Lourdes, yet know they will keep our Flames in their heart. Thank you for sharing your tremendous gifts and talents with us all. Special congratulations to Mrs. Sweeney who has announced her retirement from the board. We wish you much happiness in your new chapter of your life Mrs. Sweeney! You will be greatly missed.
New staffing has not been completely confirmed; yet, we can welcome Ms. Hamilton, Ms. Monahan and Ms. Colacrai to our Lourdes family. We know they will love their new ‘home’.
Although Mrs. DeFreitas will not be returning in September, we are hopeful for her continued recovery and medical treatment. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as we wish her return to OLOL to be as quick as possible.
As our school year comes to an end, please join us, as you can, for these upcoming events:
-Year End Closing Mass: 10:00 a.m. on June 22nd
-Mission Day: 12:30-2:15 p.m. on June 22nd
