Better Together

We are so excited to begin a new school year and welcome all of Our Lady of the Angels students back! At OLA, we strive to ensure our students feel loved, safe, and respected at school. From our dedicated teachers to each member of our school staff, we work hard to make sure students feel connected and that we model kindness every day. We are all partners in your child’s education, and as a team, we will work together to ensure a great education for your student. We are available if you have any questions or need some support. Please reach out to us. We invite you to meet the staff on September 15th at the Meet the Staff BBQ.

Mrs. Yuzdepski (Principal) Ms. Bennett (Assistant Principal) Mrs. Preville (Secretary)
