News and Information

Fall 2022 — Welcome Back!

I know, I know, I know—the end of summer leaves many of us wistful, and I’m right there with you. I also know many of us are excited to get back to school. For real! But did you know that you can feel both ways and that’s pretty common? Sure you did, because you’re smart!
While I’d love to continue the blissful freedom of summer, I am also looking forward to seeing all of you. We’re going to have a fun year. We’re going to laugh while we learn. We’re going to solve problems and grow in our understanding of each other and the world. Before you know it, the seasons will turn and you’ll be right back in June, but with greater knowledge of who you are. Not complete, of course, but a greater one. I’m looking forward to learning with you.
Here’s some news for the start of school.

Supplies Drop Off Night
Come by on Wednesday, August 24 at 5:30 p.m. to drop off your wet wipes, ziplocks, paper towels and tissues (if you have them). Otherwise, please bring the rest of your supplies on the first day of school. Thanks!

First Day of School
We’re back on Tuesday, August 30! Bring any supplies you didn’t bring on Supplies Drop Off Night. Please make sure your name is on everything! We’ll have mass this day and dismiss at NOON.

Forms to turn in
As the year begins, there will be some forms and things to turn in, including:

Electives Sign Up
Our opt-in classes are: Band, Spanish, and Choir. I encourage students to enrich themselves by signing up for any or all of these. Additionally, for non-band students, there will be new enrichment courses offered, graded and taught by the middles school team and guest instructors. More information to come.

Drop-off / Pick-up
Same as last year. Drop off and pick up in the north lot by the gym. Students may enter the building at 8:15 a.m. If they arrive any earlier without a parent, they will be sent to EDC. Please pick up students between 3 p.m. and 3:10 p.m. After 3:10, students will be sent to EDC.

Uniform Update
We are returning to our handbook dress code regarding OLG uniform sweatshirts only in the classrooms. CYO or non-OLG hoodies are no longer allowed in class. Thank you!

Middle School students are allowed to wear P.E. Uniforms to school on Friday for the entire day (unless it is a Mass Day).
