Movie Night - OLA Fall Movie night is scheduled for Saturday, November 2 featuring the movie Inside Out. Movie Night paperwork and raffle tickets are included in today’s envelope. Each family is responsible for $40 (20 tickets) in raffle ticket sales. Be on the lookout for opportunities to sell at Masses throughout the month of October. A reminder that families who turn in their minimum required raffle sales by Friday 10/4 will receive extra raffle entries as well as stay tuned for more raffle incentives! We need volunteers and Movie Night is a great way to knock out those parent hours. Please return the volunteer interest sheet. We are also looking for individuals or businesses that are interested in becoming a Movie Night sponsor. These sponsorships are so important in helping us make our fundraiser a financial success. If you have any questions please contact Jill Capra at

Scrip News - We have scrip (gift cards) for sale...check out our inventory in the office, or place an order from our large list.  Use the convenience of our office to purchase gift cards for restaurants, Starbucks, Vons, Smart & Final, many fast foods and more.  Our school earns money for every sale of scrip. Scrip is available during office hours Mon-Fri. Every $200 purchase of scrip = 1 parent hour.

Volley Ball -  The Girls Volleyball team has their first game today against St. Augustine. Come out and support our Girls. 


Lunch Helpers Needed: Parents, we can use your assistance every day with lunchtime supervision (12 noon until 12:45 pm).  The school staff supervise the lunch tables and play areas, but we can use additional helpers. It’s a fun way to spend some time with your children and assist us too. Consider coming at lunch any full school day.  Simply sign in by the office, pick up a Lunch Helpers Guide, wear a name tag, and check-in with Karen for directions. Each 45 minute lunch period you are here earns you one parent hours. We ask that all parents assisting at lunch or in a classroom take the Virtus Protecting God’s children class offered by the parish.  


OLA Front Gate: Please remember to make sure the gate closes behind you. Thank you for keeping us safe.

Protecting God’s children is the initial VIRTUS training session required for adults who come into contact with children in their ministries.  The program covers the requirements for an effective prevention program. The training is good for four years. We ask that all school volunteers take the training.  For questions, call Dea Boehme at (805) 390-1260. It is also recommended that parent volunteers be Livescanned for the school.
