Whether it’s singing happy birthday to classmates through a zoom meeting or working hard from kitchen table work spaces, our students continue to show dedication to their studies, and more importantly, to each other!
Dr. Suess recently visited the preschool rooms to celebrate National Reading Month! We hope that these pictures brighten up your day, OLR!
Hello OLR families,
As you may have seen, the Archdiocese of Detroit has commented on the topic of COVID-19 (click here to view the WXYZ broadcast) and Our Lady of Refuge is promoting the practice of good hygiene which includes:
- washing hands regularly, particularly after using the bathroom and before eating
- using hand sanitizer after touching other people/items
- not sharing drink or food with others
- staying home if symptomatic (coughing, fever, runny nose)
- wiping down items commonly used by other students
Per the above strategies, if you are able and willing to donate hand sanitizer or wipes for your child’s classroom, please contact the teacher to let them know you can send items in for the students. Please DO NOT just send items in without checking first, because we do not have storage for excess amounts. For other information on this topic, use this link to get the latest details from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Remember, COVID-19 is simply a more aggressive virus, so following good safety protocol will go a long way toward keeping this and any other virus from spreading!

The first graders are enhancing their science learning experience by dressing up as the animal they have researched. Great job on your animal reports!!

Bianca Kizy (Jiddou) is a 2003 OLR graduate. She went on to Mercy High School and then to get her doctorate from Wayne State University. Bianca is an ophthalmologist. We love a Raven success story!
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!
The middle schoolers are creating maps and coding Ozobots to follow a specific route on them!
