Newsletter – November 5th
Hello OLR families,
October ended with fun filled Halloween celebrations and November kicked off with an energetic All Saints Day Mass that showcased many students dressing up to honor a Saint of their choice! Thank you to all the students and families that so generously dipped into their candy reserves to donate to the Thanksgiving baskets through Christian Ministries! Another fantastic example of how our school shows kindness to those in need.
This afternoon is our monthly celebration of students K-5, so please be here by 2:30 if you are attending. There is also a Dad’s Club meeting tomorrow evening at 7 PM in the Social Hall. Also, remember that we have an early release for conferences this Wednesday afternoon as well as conferences on Thursday morning. There will be no school on Friday and picture retake day will be on Monday the 12th.
Lots of stuff happening! Have a great week!!
Newsletter – November 13th
Hello OLR families,
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, there’s a lot to be thankful for here at Our Lady of Refuge!
One thing I’m thankful for all our wonderful parents who came to conferences and helped us strengthen the partnership between home and school. It’s only because of fantastic families that we can provide the stellar educational experience during the day!
Another is the focus on our school theme of “being kind” and how we show that to one another on a regular basis, primarily on this day being “World Kindness Day”!
Lastly, I’m thankful for the wonderful programs we are able to share with our students, like the Red Wings Assembly taking place this Friday afternoon.
Have a great week and hopefully we’ll see you either at the weekly Wednesday Mass, our Parents Club meeting tomorrow at 2 PM (Wednesday the 14th) in the Social Hall or at the Coffee Talk for parents this Friday at 8:30 in our middle school science lab!
