Our Lady of the Assumption

News Notes for October 9, 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! Volunteers are needed for setup, cleanup and to work at this event. Get Parent Hours! For more information, contact Jill Capra at (805)256-5455.


SNACK SHACK: As part of the good eats at Movie Night, we will have a Snack Shack with movie snack goodies for purchase. We ask every family in grades K – 7 to donate $5 toward the Snack Shack. Please send this in to the office. Grade 8 will also sponsor and run a baked goods booth.


Raffle Tickets: Every family is responsible for 20 raffle tickets ($40 total) for the Movie Night, for which your student gets one chance in our iPad drawing. You may purchase these yourself or sell them. For every additional 5 raffle tickets sold, the student gets an additional chance in the raffle.

Would you like to sell raffle tickets to our wonderful parishioners after a Sunday mass? Father Leon has given our students the okay to sell at the exit doors of the church or at a table at Friendship Sunday on the weekends of October 14-15 and October 27-28, after each of the masses: 5:15 PM Saturday and 8 AM, 9:30 AM, 11 AM and 5:15 PM Sunday. They may choose to sell after mass outside one of the church doors or at a table in Mulcahy Center. Students wear their school uniform, and bring their own tickets, change, extra tickets from the school office (GET IN OUR OFFICE AHEAD OF TIME). Parent volunteers are welcome to come also and may earn parent hours.  Sign up sheets are on the counter in the school office for a maximum of 7 students per mass.


STUDENT ENTERTAINMENT AT MOVIE NIGHT- Dance Instructor Lyndsay Roark will be teaching students a routine to tunes from our movie Moana. Signup sheets for students to be a part of this were sent home last week. They will practice during school time and will perform on November 3 prior to the movie.


PROGRESS REPORTS for the middle of the First Trimester are coming home today.


PARKING LOT REMINDERS - If you park and walk in, 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. A growing number of students whose parents have designated them as “walkers” after school leave the school area to walk to the front of the church to wait. At least once a day, our office gets reports of one or more of those students seen fooling around, walking around the lot or back to the school…parents didn’t arrive yet, talking to friends, forgot a book, etc. The front of the church is a not supervised area and we do not recommend that parents have their children wait there.


Makeup Picture Day – will be Friday, October 26.


OLA-ST. BONAVENTURE GOLF TOURNAMENT– Get your foursome together and make plans to join us for the second annual OLA-St. Bonaventure Golf Tournament on Monday, November 5 at Saticoy CC. Information and online registration can be found on the OLA website, the St. Bonaventure website and the OLA Parish website. SIGN UP BY OCTOBER 16 TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE EARLY BIRD PRICING AND RAFFLE! Volunteers are also needed for the day of the event. This is a great way to earn lots of parent hours. For more information, contact Gina Ravenscroft in our school office.


Ballet Classes – OLA mom and ballet instructor Lyndsay Roark started after-school ballet classes last week. Still interested? Additional flyers are in the school office. Instruction is on Wednesday beginning at 3 PM.


NAMING OPPORTUNITIES ON OUR SCHOOL PLAZA – We invite all school families and alumni to consider a donation to the school plaza. There are still opportunities for donating to this project, including numerous opportunities to give. This is a chance to invest in the school and have your family and childrens’ names on pavers to always be at the school. Please consider a gift in memory of a relative, school graduate or grandparent.
