Happy New Year!
Happy New Year OLR families,
Welcome back! Hopefully your family enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and New Year holiday together. It was exciting to see all our Ravens come back into school this morning all relaxed and ready to start a new calendar year of learning! With the completion of the Parish’s new organ, we will return to our regular Wednesday school mass times starting on the 8th, so hopefully we will see you in attendance those mornings, starting at 8:15. Also, remember to spread the word that we will have our Open House to kick off Catholic Schools Week on Sunday, January 26th from 10 AM – 1 PM. Our best reference for future students is our own families, so if you know of any great additions we can bring to OLR, let them know to come by and visit! Have a great week and once again, welcome back!
4th Grade Retreat
The fourth graders enjoyed their retreat this past Wednesday! The parable of “The Good Samaritan” helped them to explore the topics of kindness and helping those in need. They decorated rocks to share with their classmates to act out the theme “Love Your Neighbor”. OLR learns so much about God at our grade level monthly retreats!
