Be it known to all who enter here, that Christ is the reason for this school. He is the unseen, but ever present teacher in the classrooms, the model of its faculty, and the inspiration of its students.

“He has done all things well. He makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.” MK 7:37

What are School-Wide Learning Expectations?

School-wide Learning Expectations are defined as, “what students should know, understand, value, and be able to do by graduation.” At Our Lady of Las Vegas, our goal is to develop active faith-filled Catholics who are life-long learners, effective communicators, responsible decision makers, and culturally aware/global citizens.


We believe that through meaningful and authentic learning experiences over time, students will become highly developed in these areas. Learners will be able to exhibit a culmination of their learning in a real world context that has significant purpose and meaning for them and others (adapted from Fontana USD). Our instructional program is driven by these learning expectations.


Acquisition of these Learning Expectations drives the instructional program and fully supports the operations and goals of our school.

School-Wide Learning Expectation of The Week: Effective Communicators Who Speak Well

By the time our 8th-grade students graduate from Our Lady of Las Vegas, they should be able to prioritize connections related to decisions and apply concepts and reasoning to support decision-making.


This week will emphasize making good choices, including "see something say something" and treating one another with respect.

School Picture Day

School picture day will be here before we know it. Picture Day will be held on Wednesday, September 8th. Please remember that all students are to wear their WINTER uniform, including their sweater for picture day. Students may wear shorts and black tennis shoes instead of pants and dress shoes. If you have questions regarding the winter uniform, please see page 24 of the Parent-Student Handbook.


Students will only be wearing their school sweaters for the picture as it is still quite warm outside.

Please stop by after school on September 13th & 14th to meet the new PTO leaders and learn more. They will have a table set up in the courtyard near the main entrance.


The grade with the most parents signed up to join PTO by September 16th, will earn an ice cream social.
