Weekly Bulletin - June 24 , 2022

LEADERSHIP MESSAGE-HAPPY SUMMER!

As we reflect on our year at OLMP, we are filled with enormous pride in our entire staff and student body. This has been a fantastic year of learning and growth. A big thank you goes out to our parent community for all of your support this past school year. We wish our students all the best through the remainder of the exam schedule.


We will be saying good-bye to some staff members and wish them well. Ms. Chizawsky has accepted a transfer to another school next year in Ft. Saskatchewan. Ms. Woitas and Ms. Burke have accepted positions in different schools as well. Mrs. Ganske has accepted a new position at St. Pat's in her role as an Educational Assistant. Mrs. Zimmer will not be returning as a contracted Cosmetology teacher next year. We thank them for their service to OLMP!


As we wrap this year up, we continue to plan for the 2022/23 school year. We can confirm that we will begin next year with staggered entry on the first two days of school next school year:

THURS/FRI Sept. 1 & 2- Staggered start (half of each class/grade each day) Info. to follow in August.

TUES Sept. 6- First full day with all students in the building.

This will allow staff more time to connect with students, adjust schedules and options and go over any new changes to our school year. More information about this and the school year startup will be sent towards the end of August.


Report card marks and comments will be available through PowerSchool for viewing on Wednesday, June 29th by the end of the day.


We will send our last Smore of this school year on Wednesday, June 29th with any up-to-date news/reminders to share before our staff leave for Summer.


We wish you all a wonderful summer and look forward to welcoming you again in the Fall. God bless all of our families during summer break.


Blessings,


OLMP Admin Team
