Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we prepare for the end of the school year, here is one final newsletter of reminders and updates!
Final Payment and 2018-2019 Registration Reminders
Yesterday, we sent home our final payment reminders for those families who still show a balance in Option C. Please submit payments as soon as possible. If there is an error on your bill, please call the office or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will make the necessary changes.
We will be sending out final registration reminders on Thursday to current families who have not yet re-registered. At this time, in Grades PK, K, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, we have less than five seats available per class. Because of a high number of new families that have already registered, we do not have enough seats left for all current OLCA students to return in September. Please, if you are planning to return, reserve your seats as soon as possible.
Home Academy Association and the Year End BBQ
We want to thank the Home Academy Association Leadership Committee for their extraordinary work organizing our Year-End BBQ, and I want to thank the parents who generously donated food, drinks, and their time! Because of your generosity, all OLCA students were able to enjoy activities and food at no cost, and we were able to raise nearly $2,000 for initiatives identified by OLCA parents as a priority for next year: an Early Childhood Playground and a STEM Robotics Program.
Early Childhood Inclusive Playground
In addition to the funds raised by the HAA, a grant written by our Nursery teacher, Mrs. Maria Lourdes Evans, secured an additional $10,000 in funding for a new Inclusive Playground in the lower level of the schoolyard, adjacent to the Early Childhood Center. This new playground will be installed in the coming weeks. Again, we thank the HAA, as well as Mrs. Evans, for their leadership and efforts in making this dream a reality.
OLCA Summer Brainstorm
Finally, registration is still underway for OLCA Summer Brainstorm, our ninth annual summer program that features academics in the morning and games and activities in the afternoon. Registration forms are available online and in the office.
We thank all of you for your support and your feedback during this transitional year. Your commitment to Catholic Education at Our Lady’s Catholic Academy continues to motivate, challenge, and inspire us. It remains our greatest blessing to serve in this ministry. From Many, We are One.
Sincerely in Christ,
Kevin John Coyne Debra Eisenbraun
