Our Lady of the Assumption

News Notes for October 2, 2018

Family Movie Night - On Saturday, November 3, OLA will host our annual FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT, featuring the movie” MOANA”. Plan to join us for an evening of fun, friends, good food and entertainment! Information on this great event, food info and raffle tickets are coming home today. Volunteer signups are also included – get parent hours checked off.


GRADELINK – Parents, we suggest that you check Gradelink regularly to keep up on your child’s grades. Gradelink is used to verify grades for eligibility for sports and activities, with weekly grade checks beginning next week. Having difficulty logging in? Reach out to our office for assistance.


PARKING LOT - As a reminder, there is NO LEFT TURN from Dunning Street into the carline in the morning or afternoon. This stops traffic and is unfair to cars patiently waiting in line. If you come in from Telegraph Road to Dunning, please go around San Luis Street and join the end of our carline. For safety, be sure to use the crosswalk to walk your child across the lanes.     Morning drivers, please do not stop and let children out in the drive lane of the parking lot. Our valet lane moves quickly and is safer for our children.


Makeup Picture Day – will be Friday, October 26.
