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.
