From the Desk of Mrs. Riley
November 29, 2018
What a wonderful time to be a part of the OLGC School community!! It has been such an exciting week as we listened to our OLGC School Choir on the radio. They were chosen from hundreds of schools as one of the 9 semifinalists in the B 101.1 Christmas Choir Competition. Even though we did not move on, we are so incredibly proud of our students for the hard work, effort, dedication, and determination that went into their performance! We are also so thankful to the many members of our school, parish, and Archdiocesan community who supported us during the competition. Our choir has truly united us as a school community.
Please join us tomorrow at 8:45 for our November Community Homeroom. The following is the agenda:
- November Birthdays
- Box Top Winners
- ARK Winners
- Blessing of classroom Advent Wreaths
Thank you for your constant support and prayers for our school. I encourage you to continue to support our work as we advance our mission to provide a transformative education steeped in academics and faith to our deserving students. There is no greater investment for forming our future saints than a Catholic education!
Please carefully review this week's newsletter for many reminders and updates. We thank you for entrusting your children to us and for the sacrifices you make each day to send your child(ren) to Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic School.
