Principal Newsletter

From the Desk of Mrs. Riley

December 13, 2018

Dear Parents,

As we enter another week of Advent and get closer to the celebration of Christmas and the birth of our Savior, our school is filled with the spirit of the season. Our Pre-K through Grade 1 students shared the nativity story in our first Little Angels Christmas Social. What a wonderful job they did! A huge thank you to their teachers for all of the hard work and preparation that went into this event.

Please join us tomorrow at 1:30 PM in Church for our annual Christmas Concert and Nativity Tableau. The true meaning of Christmas is being brought to life by all of our students. This is just a reminder that there will be no early dismissals for students after the concert. Please refer to the email that was sent home earlier this week for more details.

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.

God’s Peace,

Mrs. Barbara Riley
