Leadership Newsletter


Dear Parents and Guardians,

We hope this letter finds you well. As we prepare for the Thanksgiving Recess and the end of the first trimester, here are some important updates:

Parent Alert System

 Today, we had our first lockdown drill of the year, which went very well. In case of an actual emergency, we will use the Option C Parent Alert system to notify parents and guardians. At this time, you should have received several texts and e-mails from this system. If you have not, please contact Mrs. Gilbert immediately at (718) 641-1316 and she will update your information to ensure you receive all future parent alerts.

OLCA Gives Back Dress Down

Thursday, November 16

Tomorrow’s dress down will be for a special cause: the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF.) This collection is in support of one of our diabetic students, and contributions collected will be given toward her family’s fundraising walk for this organization. The dress down is $1, but any additional funds are welcome, and 100% will be donated to the JDRF.

Boy Scouts Meeting

Thursday, November 16: 6 PM

If you are still interested in joining the Boy Scouts, it’s not too late! We have another meeting coming up tomorrow evening at 6 PM. All are welcome. The meeting will be in the 2-1 classroom, right across from the Main Office.

Thanksgiving Luncheon

Tuesday, November 21

To all of the parents and guardians who have already signed up to donate, thank you! At this time, we have enough paper plates, napkins, and cups. We still need turkey more than anything else, so if you would like to cook a turkey, we will provide one using the funds collected so far. Please call Mrs. Ciriaco at (718) 641-1316 if you are interested, and please keep signing up for food and drinks. We are also happy to have parent volunteers, so you can sign up for that, too!

December 2017 Bills

Today, you should have received your bill for tuition and fees due as of Friday, December 1. This reflects all payments that must be received by Wednesday, December 6 to receive your child’s report card on Thursday, December 7. We are sending this bill out early for your convenience.  If you have any questions about your bill, please call the office at (718) 641-1316.

Thank you for all of your constant support and consideration, and we wish all of you a blessed Thanksgiving.

Sincerely in Christ,

Mr. Kevin John Coyne & Mrs. Debra Eisenbraun

Principal & Assistant Principal
