Dear Parents and Guardians,
Here is our weekly rundown of happenings at Our Lady’s Catholic Academy.
OLCA Gives Back: Help for Haiti

OLCA is partnering with Operation Dreamcatcher to collect non-perishable foods and health products for Haitians affected by Hurricane Matthew. The flyer is attached to this newsletter! We hope you are able to help us with this special collection.
United Nations Assembly
Monday, October 24
RB: 9 AM / 128: 1 PM
I am proud to announce that four new flags will be part of our annual ceremony this year: Cameroon, Croatia, Lithuania, and Venezuela! Remember that Monday is a free Dress Up day and that cultural dress is encouraged. Thank you to Ms. Paz, Mrs. Kelly, Mr. Cotto, and Mr. Morales for their help with this event!
Halloween Celebration & Activities
Friday, October 27 – Saturday, October 28
We will carry on with our annual tradition of students being allowed to wear costumes to school for Halloween,. This year, we will have in school activities throughout the day on Friday, October 27, and special events for Grades 4-8 on Friday evening, and for Grades N-4 on Saturday afternoon. Flyers have already gone home for the two events, and guidelines for costumes during the school day are included with this newsletter, along with a permission slip for the haunted house. The same rules apply for the events on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. We will be closed on Halloween (Monday, October 31) for a professional day.
Just a friendly reminder that tuition is due on the first of the month, and that all accounts should be current through the third tuition payment at this time. A late fee will be added on Tuesday, October 25, so please bring your account up to date by then. Thank you to all of the families who are already current.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
Sincerely in Christ,
Kevin John Coyne Debra Eisenbraun
