Wrong Again!

Clearly, summer has not let us out of its firey grasp even as we head into the middle of October. This week we will see highs in the mid-90s. Who's ready for some seasonal weather?

Thanks to all who came out to support the Parish and School Fall Festival. We appreciate your help and your company! We hope everyone had a great time.

How would you like to get reminders about important events and other school news? We have several ways that we are reaching out to our families. See the section below called "Get Connected" to learn how you can be "in the know" at all times.

Please let us know if you need any assistance, as we are here to serve you!


Did you know that YOU MUST BE CERTIFIED through our Safe Environment Program before you are eligible to volunteer for school events such as field trips and Parade of Lights?

The next class being held here at OMM will take place THIS THURSDAY, October 15th at 6pm in the School Library.

DO NOT DELAY in getting this certification completed. All parents and family members who are to be earning participation points for your family MUST BE CERTIFIED.

If you are not compliant with our Safe Environment policies, you will be receiving a notice sent home with your child this week. Please take the necessary steps to get current with your training.

Please contact the office if you have any questions. You may reach Mrs. Allen at or Mrs. Malinowski at
