O Come, O Come Emmanuel

The Faculty, Staff, and Administration at Our Mother of Mercy pray that you have a blessed Advent and Christmas Season! Please remember us and each other in prayer as we prepare for the holidays. We pray for safe travels and a restful vacation for our students and families.

Our last week of school before vacation is upon us and it is packed with activity! Please help us out this week by participating in our celebrations and making sure your child is ready and on time for school each day.

On Wednesday we have our annual Christmas Program. Students are to report to their classroom no later than 5:30pm to prepare for the performance. They should be dressed and ready to go. The performance will begin at 6pm in the church. Students will walk over with and sit with their classes. The performance should only last about an hour.

At the end of the performance, your child will be dismissed to your care. PTO will be serving refreshments in the school cafeteria immediately following the performance. We invite all students and families to attend.

On Thursday our classes will have their Christmas Parties in their rooms. Your child's teacher should contact you regarding what needs to be brought for the party. Please direct questions about your child's classroom party to their teacher.

On Friday we will have an early release day. Dismissal is at 12:30pm. We do not have After School Care available on this day. PLEASE BE PROMPT IN PICKING UP YOUR CHILD. We will charge a late pickup fee if your child is left here beyond 12:45pm.

Reminder - Re-registration for the 2015-2016 school year is just around the corner. Please keep that in mind as you budget for January.

If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know!
