Congratulations!! It's our last week of school, we did it!! I would like to send a big thank you to all the students for all their hard work they have done this year, and to the parents for all their help. It was a pleasure getting to know all of you and I have truly enjoyed having you all as my first students at OLM school! I hope to see you all when you drop off your books! Please remember to bring all your textbooks, Library books, and class Library books. I'm missing our class book "A Dog's Purpose" so if you borrowed it, please make sure to return it.
