Hello OLR families,
It may just be my second year at Our Lady of Refuge, but it’s amazing to see the difference a year makes in recognizing the returning families at our Parent Night last week! We were hopeful to have another chance to see families at our Ice Cream Social on Friday night, but unfortunately, the weather did not make that possible. In lieu of a new date, we will be giving out the ice cream to all students on Thursday, September 19th during the day as well as providing an opportunity for an extra recess with their grade clusters for their socialization.
Also, we have been tracking student tardies a little closer this year, so please make sure you are leaving enough time in the morning to get your child to school BEFORE the 8 AM tardy bell. There are a few students who are coming in after 8 and that makes for a scattered start to their school day. Additionally, please adhere to the handicapped signs for those families that are in need of those parking spaces due to their circumstances. If you do not have a clearly identifiable reason to use those spots, you may be asked to move.
Have a great week and make sure to keep this Wednesday evening open for our first Parent Club meeting at 7 PM in the Media Center, it’s yet another great way to keep updated with everything going on in the school.
