Student Leadership – Hope

Happy Holy Week!  During this special week in our Catholic faith, it is fitting to celebrate those who show hope in the classroom.  Hope is what allows us to move forward when things don’t go the way we plan.  These students have the hope that things will always get better.  Whatever the situation, it takes hope to always find the best in every situation, and that’s what makes these students stand out.  Congratulations to this week’s recipients!

Preschool Easter Bunny Visit

The OLR preschoolers were excited to get an early visit from the Easter Bunny today!  Happy Easter! 

Student Leadership – Courage

Happy Spring!  We continue honoring students by celebrating those who show courage in the classroom.   They may have the courage to try something new, to stand up for another classmate or even just taking a guess at an answer.  Whatever the reason, it takes courage to do something that makes you uncomfortable, and that makes them stand out from the everyday student.  Congratulations to this week’s recipients!

Student Leadership

As we continue to move toward a return to normal, we are excited to once again celebrate students for their leadership in the classroom!  We will be honoring students each week as chosen by a teacher for a characteristic that embodies what we strive for at OLR.  This week’s characteristic is Faith.  In a world where things seems random and out of our control, it is so important to have faith in not only Our Father and Our Lady, but in ourselves.  Students were chosen this week because of their demonstration of Faith in one form or another that makes them stand out from the everyday student.  Congratulations to all our recipients as identified below:

Oscar Mansky, 2009 Graduate


Oscar Mansky is an actor living in Chicago, IL. His siblings all attended OLR at some point, as well as his Mom, Maureen. Some of his favorite memories include playing basketball during lunch, being given equipment privileges for recess, and playing in the basketball program (even if it was spent mostly on the bench). A couple of his favorite teachers were Mrs. Murphy in 3rd grade and Mrs. Waltz in 7th and 8th grade. He now spends his time in the acting world, and is based in Chicago. He’s most recently been featured in Chicago Fire, as well feature films ‘If You’re Gone’ and ‘Bathroom Stalls and Parking Lots,’ with more movies and shows in the works. He also hosts ‘What Happenedish Podcast’ with his brother and fellow OLR alum. We are so proud of Oscar and all of his accomplishments!

First Grade Animals!

First Grade Animals

The first graders loved to show what they have learned in Science class about the different types of animals by dressing up to present their reports to the class.  You look amazing first graders!

A “Hair Raising” Experiment

The 8th graders did a “hair raising” experiment to better understand static electricity, static discharge, and how electrical charges behave.  Using the Van De Graaf Generator, they could also make lightning in the Science lab.  Amazing! 

Teamwork!

The middle schoolers helped restock for next year’s Santa’s Secret Shop by creating an assembly line to help unload all the goodies.  Thank you for your help!

Helping Our Community

Shortly before Christmas, NJHS assisted Christian Service with organizing the food pantry donations and made up baskets for the poor.  Thank you for your help!
