Miss.McGrath's Prep News

Hello June...

Happy June OLG Families!

The 2015~2016 school year is officially coming to an end. Even though we have enjoyed many laughs, memories, and great educational experiences this school year; We are all ready for a well deserved summer break. Your child has worked incredibly hard this year and should be very proud of the strides they have made, I sure am :)

Thank you families for your continued support in your child's education. I pray each and every one of you have a restful, safe, and exciting summer break.

Cheers to a terrific school year!

~Miss. K McGrath
