We received some sad news over our Easter Break. Mr. Vince Benjamin passed away unexpectedly. He was a long supporter of OLM school who volunteered everyday to help with the lunch yard duty, help with school events, coach and referee. Our school will be having a memorial service tomorrow at 8:15 am. All are welcome to attend. Mr. B was a role model for our students and he will be greatly missed. There is a letter from Mrs. Blackburn regarding his service to the school along with Rosary and Funeral arrangements.
On another note we only have 7 weeks of school left. With that being said we still have a lot to complete in a short amount of time. Continue to encourage your child to do their best in and out of class.
In our Social Studies Unit we are discussing landmarks in the United States. The students are very excited about the subject so I wanted to have them do a project about a Landmark. Your student has will choose a landmark tomorrow. A letter will be sent home tomorrow regarding our landmark project. In the past we have had great success and will display them in the library for Grandparent's day. The project is not due until May 2nd.
