Our Lady of the Assumption

News Notes for November 20, 2018


THANKSGIVING RECESS – There will be no school Wednesday – Friday of this week in celebration of Thanksgiving. Please join us for mass on Thanksgiving morning at 9 AM. In our parish tradition, bring something from your dinner to put before the altar before mass begins. There will be a special blessing of all food (both present and at home in the oven!)


REPORT CARDS – for the First Trimester will be sent home today. Academic Awards for the First Trimester will be held in the church on Tuesday, November 27 at 9:15 AM.


PARENT CONFERENCES – Parent conferences wrap up today for all grades.


POKER TOURNAMENT - Our Lady of the Assumption School will host a Poker Tournament on Saturday, December 1 in Mulcahy Center, starting at 5:30 PM. Your entry cost of $60 includes entrance, taco dinner, poker chips and a drink ticket. The winner for the evening will go home with a brand new 50” Smart TV! Plan to join in the fun!


Trick Or Treat So Others Can Eat – Congratulations to the winning class at OLA, Kindergarten! They brought in the most food for the collection we did with St. Bonaventure HS. Thanks to ALL our families for their generous support for this cause. All foods were donated to Catholic Charities, who were thrilled at the amount of great food.

Kindergarten will have their PIZZA LUNCH prize next Wednesday, Nov. 28!


PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN training is good for 4 years, then all parent volunteers must take the renewal class.     The next VIRTUS-RECERTIFICATION will take place next Monday, NOVEMBER 26 from 6-7:30 pm.           MUST CALL for a reservation in order to attend: (805)390-1260


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. The front of the church is a not supervised area and we do not recommend that parents have their children wait there.


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:     Congrats to both our Flag Football and Volleyball teams for great seasons. Congratulations to the Girls Volleyball Team for taking the tournament championship last week! The Boys Flag Football Team will play Sacred Heart on Monday, Nov. 26 at 3:30 PM THERE for the tournament championship. GO DOLPHINS!


Box Tops for Education Collection – During the holidays, be sure to keep clipping those boxtops! All your student has to do is: (1) TRIM excess packaging, (2) CHECK that the product code and expiration date are legible, (3) ATTACH the Box Tops on the enclosed Collection Sheet...glue or clear tape only, please! (No staples.)  Thanks again for supporting our awesome school!
