Huge thanks to these leaders who are willing to share their time and talents with our awesome OLA Catholic School community.
Keep your eyes peeled for a letter coming home inviting you to join in the opportunities and events at OLA, whether it be to help coordinate, deliver, design, order, prepare, share or guide...regularly or one time events. There are many opportunities to get involved that fit every schedule.
Your child's school life journey and learning is always enriched by your participation!

Children and parents love having Milk programs and Hot Lunch programs at school. These are a few of the big year-long programs we would love to offer and need regular volunteers to make happen. Thank you offering your help where possible.

OLA Sleep Stars
- Being physically active helps our whole body stay healthy and happy. Because sometimes stress can affect sleep, being physically active is extra important. Physical activity helps to reduce our stress levels. Make sure you are getting 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. That means your cheeks should be red and you should feel warm and sweaty for 60 minutes every single day!
- Did you know that our bodies produce a hormone called melatonin, which is our sleep hormone. Our bodies' ability to produce this sleep hormone is affected by light. If you are in front of the bright lights of a television, computer or cell phone before bed, your body will not make enough melatonin for you to get a good night's sleep.
- Have you ever heard about "sleep hygiene?" This is about the things you do to help you sleep. We talked about listening to calming music, reading a book, following your routine every night, and not being in front of a media screen.
- Hitting the snooze button in the morning may seem like a great way to get a little more sleep but it can actually work against you. By only sleeping for a few minutes, your sleep patterns are interrupted and you don't get to either of the 2 types of sleep we learned about. If you want to hit the snooze button because you're still tired, go to bed earlier to hit your good deep sleep patterns for a really good Sleep Star rest.
