Dear OLG Families,
Rock & Roll Jog-a-thon is this Friday! Here are some updates from our awesome Jog-a-thon Coordinators, Sarah Housknecht and Linda O’Keefe…
Reminders for Students:
FREE Dress Day! Please wear clothes appropriate for running. Dress a little Rock-n-Roll. Wear bright colors! Crazy socks! Have some fun! Please No Hair Color.
Wear RUNNING shoes.
Bring extra clothing! Rain is always a possibility in Seattle, but the show must go on. Layering your clothing is the best option.
If it is sunny, please put on sunscreen before coming to school. You can also wear hats and sunglasses.
Bring a water bottle with your name on it to the field.
Turn in PLEDGE SHEETS before you run!
Reminders for Parents:
Please return pledge sheets to your child’s teacher (Both yellow and white)
List all pledges on the form including online donations. Any pledges received by 9:00am on Friday will be included in your total. (Runners must turn in a pledge form to qualify for prizes.)
Remember to use the website for flat donations and to pay invoices after the event. This is also a great way for out-of-town relatives to support the jog-a-thon.
Canine friends should remain off the field and away from the runners during this event.
If you have volunteered for the event, you will receive a separate email from the chairs.

Youth Migrant Project Summer Mission Trip For Teens
St. James Cathedral, St. Mary’s and St. Anne’s are collaborating on a summer mission trip called the Youth Migrant Project and they’ve invited teens from OLG to join them! Mr. Santos and Jennifer Ibach will help lead this fun and life-changing week. We will be joining the group for the second half of their trip (July 5th-July 8th). The trip is open to all graduating 8th graders (14+) through graduating high school seniors. We stay at St. Charles in Burlington and work in a variety of migrant ministries in the Skagit Valley, including distributing food and clothing, creating a fiesta for the children in a camp, and attending Mass in a camp. In addition to serving, we will learn about migrant life and reflect on our faith in light of these realities. There are two mandatory preparation meetings on May 22nd and June 12th, both at 6:30pm at St. James Cathedral. The cost of the trip is $200 but scholarships are available. Because there are four parishes participating, space is limited. If you are interested in attending or have questions, contact Jennifer Ibach at 206-935-0358 x.120. Applications are available in the parish office and online and are due Friday, May 13th.
Our Lady of Guadalupe School & Parish acknowledges that we are on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish People past and present, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe.
