Letter from Principal Young

Dear OLOL Families,


At the beginning of each school year I’m amazed with the many activities that are going on.   I forget how busy the end of the school year gets as well.  The past couple weeks we had a group field trip to the Weidner center and a group went to Titletown Tech for a middle school leadership conference.  This week we have a group attending a Battle of the Books competition.  Our 2nd graders have 1st Communion on Sunday, April 30th.  We also have Trivia Night this Friday.  


Coming up in May we will be having our Spring Concert, Spanish Night, our annual Spring Awards Assembly, ABC countdown, Field Day and so much more.  Please review the Lourdes Letter and school website for all that is happening.


The Knights of Columbus have a long history of supporting OLOL Catholic School.  They do so many things for us.  They support us financially, with scholarships and academic support.  OLOL 7th and 8th graders recently participated in the KC annual Right to Life Essay contest. We would like to congratulate the students that placed in that contest. They were Margaret Destree, Haylee Huth, Ethan Ditscheit, and Alex Schmeisser.  We are proud of our students that understand that life is a gift from God and place a high value on that.


OLOL Catholic School recently acknowledged a Knight that has a long history of helping our school.  John Mueller has been reading to our elementary students for over 25 years.  Each month, he came into the classrooms and read a story to our students.  OLOL would like to thank John Mueller for his commitment to OLOL and Catholic education.

Spring Concert News from Mrs. Lewis


It feels early, but there are a few important notes about the spring concert that I want to make sure to communicate with you sooner rather than later!


The Our Lady of Lourdes Spring Concert, A Year in Church Music, will be Thursday, May 11. The concert will be held in the Church and will begin at 6:30 P.M. All Kindergarten through 8th grade students are participating in the concert. The concert is a mandatory performance for all students - every voice and instrument matters - their classmates are counting on them!


Students should dress nicely for the concert. Boys should wear nice pants (no blue jeans, no sweat pants, no shorts) and a nice shirt (button down or polo shirt). Sweaters, suit coats, ties, etc. are all fine, but not necessary. Girls can wear nice pants and a nice shirt, a skirt and a nice shirt, or a dress. Skirts or dresses should reach the knee or should have leggings worn underneath. Leggings should only be worn under a skirt or tunic-length top. 


Our concert will be featuring liturgical (Mass) music that we sing throughout the year. In class, students are learning about the church calendar and the various seasons we celebrate. Each season has a specific color (or colors) associated with it. Each class is being asked to wear the liturgical color of their music’s season. From the waist up, students should be wearing a top that is at least 50% the appropriate color. The seasons and color(s) for each class are listed below:

  • Advent - 2nd Grade - purple and/or pink
  • Christmas - 3rd Grade - white
  • Ordinary Time - Kindergarten - green
  • Lent - 4th Grade - purple
  • Holy Week - 5th Grade - purple, red, and/or white **5th graders who are in the middle school choir should wear white so there is no need to change**
  • Easter - Middle School Choir - white
  • Ordinary Time - 1st Grade - green


**Band students who are in the church choir should wear white. Band students who are ONLY participating as band students, can wear whatever color they would like.**


A shirt or dress that is primarily the liturgical color, but also contains other colors is 100% fine. T-shirts may also be worn if needed. Large logos should be avoided if possible.


All band students should arrive at school and meet in the band room by 6:00 P.M. All other students should arrive in church by 6:15 P.M. All students should plan on staying for the entire concert as we will be performing as a whole school at the close of the concert.


If you have any questions, please e-mail Mrs. Lewis at mlewis@gracesystem.org.

Spanish 'Showoff Night' News from Mrs. Eggart


Hola padres,


I am very excited to share with you that Spanish Show Off Night (SSON) will be returning on May 18th at 6:30 p.m.  The last time we were able to have this event was in 2018. For those of you who have never participated in our event, SSON is a night full of laughter and fun.

 

In the Spanish classes, students have been learning to speak Spanish and also about the culture of different Spanish speaking countries. At the SSON, kids go beyond their comfort level to show off their language and cultural knowledge. Kids write their own skits, recite poems, sing, dance, and act for fun. Students will take you around Latin America in one night.


Attendance at the SSON is mandatory. It is part of your child's final Spanish grade. If your child does not attend, they get a zero unless they are excused by their parents. I appreciate an email letting me know in advance if your child will not be attending. 


I will also need some parent volunteers per grade level to make food for that night. In previous years, after the show, we all gathered in the cafeteria and enjoyed great Latin American dishes. An email with further clarification per grade will follow.


Thank you for supporting the Spanish program.


If you have any questions, please e-mail Mrs. Eggart at leggart@gracesystem.org
