Our Lady of the Assumption

News Notes for November 6, 2018

Family Movie Night Our Moana Movie Night was a wonderful evening! Thanks to all who attended. Our APA Board, volunteers and cooking crew did a fabulous job. Thanks to Lyndsay Roark for teaching our OLA Moana Dancers two cute numbers. They did their performance prior to the movie. We drew the raffle winners. They are: 3rd prize, $250: the McReynolds family; 2nd prize, $500: the Lee family; 1st prize, $1000: Lisa Cross (school grandparent). Congratulations to all of them and thank you for supporting our school.


Student Raffle Drawing: All students who sold their minimum raffle tickets earned a ticket for an iPad drawing, and additional ticket sales earned more chances to win. We will draw the student winner this Friday at 8 AM at flag salute!


OLA-ST. BONAVENTURE GOLF TOURNAMENTIt was a great day at Saticoy Club yesterday for our second annual joint golf tournament with SB. Thank you to all our golfers, sponsors and workers!


PARENT CONFERENCES – Conference sheets with appointment times will be sent home in the brown envelope today.


TRICK OR TREAT SO OTHERS CAN EAT – Thanks to all our students and their families for the support of this canned food drive. The St. Bonaventure students hauled out crates of food last week! All will benefit Catholic Charities on the Avenue, who greatly need these resources. Stay tuned for the announcement of the winning OLA class…a pizza party will be the prize!


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.


NON-UNIFORM DRESS ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14 – Our Student Council is sponsoring a non-uniform dress on this date. Students should bring either peanut butter or cereal to contribute to the OLA Parish Thanksgiving Food drive.


SAVE THE DATE: Our Lady of the Assumption School will host a Poker Tournament on Saturday, December 1 in Mulcahy Center, starting at 5:30 PM. The cost is $60, which includes entrance, dinner, poker chips and a drink ticket. Plan to join in the fun! A flyer with all the details went home last week.


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.


SPORTS NEWS:     The OLA Flag Football and Volleyball seasons continue. Games and practices continue each week. Check out the Athletics calendar tab on our website to view the entire game schedule.

(No staples.)   Every Collection Sheet turned in equals ONE entry in a drawing for $10 in Scrip Cards.
