OLOL HSA Newsletter

Fall 2019


Hello OLOL families,

We are well on our way into the 2019-2020 School Year and have celebrated in so many ways, and we have so much more in store to help continue celebrating the spirit of Our Lady of Lourdes School. We hope you will jump in, get involved and catch the OLOL spirit.

A great way to start being more involved is to volunteer during recess or hot lunch service. Please use the sign up buttons below if you are interested in volunteering.

Festivities and Activities Already Held

We started off the year with the Back to School Picnic, followed by Back to School NIght, then onto our 1st Annual Tailgate Fundraiser which was great fun and brought together current school parents, parents of OLOL alums, alums, faculty and staff for a fun evening of games, food, football and s'mores by the fire pit.
