December Newsletter

Our Lady's Catholic AcademyDear Parents and Guardians,

As we enter the Christmas season, please note the following reminders and updates.

Report Card Conferences

Friday, December 7: 3 PM – 7 PM

First trimester report card conferences are only two days away!  Please note the following:

  • Grades N-5 will meet in the classrooms
  • Junior High teachers will meet parents in the auditorium
  • Students in Grades 3-8 are expected to attend conferences with their parent or guardian
  • Students in Grades N-2 are welcome to attend, but not required

An important reminder: to receive your child’s report card, you must have paid the first five tuition payments (August – December.) If these payments have not been made, please visit the office first, as your child’s report card will be there until the balance is taken care of.  Remember that you can check your balance online through FACTS or Option C at any time!

Christmas Show

Thursday, December 13: 6:30 PM

Our annual Christmas show is almost here! In response to parent feedback, we are not doing reserved seating this year.  We will have more than enough seats to accommodate all tickets sold in advance and some at the door. To ensure that you receive a seat, please order your ticket using the form distributed today and arrive before the show begins.  Additional forms are available in the school office.

Home Academy Association presents a Christmas Celebration

Saturday, December 15

 

Planning is underway for the latest event from our HAA, with the next meeting scheduled for Monday, December 10 at 6 PM in the main office.  The HAA Halloween event was a big success, and we are looking forward to another fun day of games and treats.  If you can’t attend the meeting but still want to volunteer or donate to the event, please e-mail the HAA at parents@olcacademy.net .

Breakfast With Santa

Wednesday, December 19: 9 AM

Santa Claus will make his annual trip to OLCA very soon. As always, this is a free event and breakfast and gifts will be provided to all of our students, Nursery through 8th Grade.  Parents are welcome to attend and take as many pictures as they like.  This is a free dress up day.

Honors Assembly

Grades 3-8

Thursday, December 20: 9 AM

Students who have made the Honor Roll for First Trimester will receive their awards on Thursday, December 20. This is another free dress up day, and again, parents are welcome to attend and take as many pictures as they like!

Christmas Liturgy

Grades K-8

Friday, December 21: 10 AM

Our final day before Christmas Recess begins will be a ½ day dismissal on Friday, December 21.  Please note that there is no after-school on this day. We will celebrate a school liturgy at St. Teresa of Avila Church at 10 AM. This special free dress up day has a “festive sweaters” theme.  A big thank you to Ms. Paz for organizing this day.

We will return from Christmas Recess on Wednesday, January 2, 2019.  As always, the administration of Our Lady’s Catholic Academy counts the families of OLCA among their greatest blessings. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Sincerely in Christ,
