School News

Our eighth grade class is undertaking a wonderful program called Virtue Stars. Each week, each 8th grade student will hand out one star to a student that has demonstrated a “virtuous” behavior. The 8th graders will then go into the classrooms each week to award the stars to the recipients. At the end of the month, names of all students receiving a star will be entered into a drawing to be given out at our Monday morning assembly and prayer. Included in the envelope today is an announcement of all those receiving stars so far this year.

After much discussion within the Home and School Board and with approval from the School Advisory Council, Home and School will be holding only one major fundraiser, the Lourdeswalk, for the school year. Lourdeswalk will be held on Friday, September 29. We are blessed to have the financial support of our parish community. The parish contributes generously to the cost of educating each student. The cost is over $6,000 to educate a student at OLL. Revenue from tuition covers only about one third of the total income necessary for school operation. Therefore, we ask each family for additional financial support as well as service to our school in order to keep tuition affordable. The School Family Budget Obligation for the school year 2017-2018 is $350.00. Home & School will offer one fundraiser to help you meet your obligation. Each year our Home and School Association has a commitment of $32,000 dollars that goes directly into the school’s operating budget. We allow for the opportunity to fundraise for this additional financial commitment instead of just raising tuition, allowing the donations to be 100% tax deductible.


A friendly reminder that tuition and preschool payments are now due for September.

Applications for free/reduced lunches for the 2017-18 school year are due by September 29. Please do not hesitate to apply for this program. The number of students that qualify for free/reduced lunches help fund other programs in our school, such as the ACE Scholarship Program as well as our Title I teacher, Jerry Ferderer.
