,The OLM Preschool Staff is very excited to begin the school year with your children! The first week has gone really well as the students have learned the classroom routine. They have gotten to know their teachers and are beginning to explore their environment.
Next week, the Pre-K classrooms will be attending Mass on Wednesday, August 15th for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is a holy day of obligation and we look forward to celebrating the Mass with the older students.
Just a reminder~ if you have not turned in your child's physician's report, it must be in by August 31st. This is a licensing requirement and needed for your child to attend school. Thank you for your cooperation.
OPEN HOUSE is on Sunday, August 19th from 11:00am-1:00pm. Please plan to visit the school and see what your child has been learning these first 2 weeks of school! There will be a Tri-Tip/rigatoni dinner offered by the 8th grade class in the auditorium. If you are interested in buying dinner tickets, please see Mrs. Mary.
School Pictures will be Wednesday, August 29th and Thursday, August 30th. If your child does not attend on Wednesday, his/her picture will be taken on Thursday. Order envelopes are due back to school by the 28th.
Please take time to read the teacher's blog, the bulletin boards, and newsletter to keep up on what it happening in your child's classroom.
Thank you for choosing OLM Preschool!

The September newsletter went out in your family envelope, but here are a few follow up items.
Vision screenings-Screenings did take place on Wednesday, September 13th. Your child either received a refer or pass. If you have a referral for your child, I have more information at the desk. Most importantly, this was a screening. It is imperative that you follow up with your child's eye doctor.
Safe Environment Training-You must be Safe Environment trained in order to volunteer in the classroom. If you would like to regularly volunteer, you must have your TB, Flu Shot, MMR, and Tdap immunizations up-to-date. You will also need to be fingerprinted through the State and Diocese of Fresno. These requirements are mandated by the Diocese and Community Care Licensing.
All School Mass and Pancake Breakfast-The all school Mass is 9:00am Sunday, September 24th at St. Patrick's. Tickets are on sale for the pancake breakfast taking place right after Mass. This fundraiser is for the 6th grade camp.
