I hope this letter finds all of you well. Here are a few OLCA updates:
Parent’s Night Out/Winter’s Ball
We are postponing this weekend’s scheduled Parent’s Night Out event because of feedback that it was difficult for parents to find supervision for their children. We are working on an event later this year that will address this issue. Int the meantime, we hope all OLCA families will attend our second annual Winter’s Ball on Saturday, February 18! This is an event where all family members can attend, and will feature wonderful food and great music to dance to. Look for the flyer for this event to go home at the beginning of next week.
2017-2018 Registration and Scholarships
It’s hard to believe, but it is almost time to begin registration for the next school year! Priority seating will go to all returning parents who register before March 31, 2017. The scholarship process has already begun, and returning families must apply by March 31 at mytads.com to secure the best possible scholarship. Look for registration papers to go home the week of January 29th, when Catholic Schools Week begins.
The Home Academy Association is sponsoring a Drama Club that will run on Saturday afternoons for several weeks. Permission slips will go home Monday, and the program will begin on Saturday, January 28. Look for more information about this exciting new activity at the beginning of next week!
Parking Lot Safety & Courtesy
We are blessed with a large student population, but I know that it can feel like less of a blessing when you are dealing with the traffic at arrival and dismissal! We are having issues with parents double parking and releasing their children from double parked cars, which is a safety issue that concerns me deeply. It is better to arrive five minutes late than to get hurt. Wall of Fame is not worth the risk! Please be patient and kind with each other as well. I understand the frustration, and we will be addressing possible changes to arrival and dismissal procedures at our next Home Academy Association Meeting.
Well Wishes for Mrs. Eisenbraun
As some of you may be aware, Mrs. Eisenbraun was injured last week and has been recovering at home. Her absence has been deeply felt across the school community, and I have never been more aware of how indispensable she is as I am in her absence! We are hoping she will be back soon, so please join me in wishing her a speedy recovery!
Sincerely in Christ,
Kevin John Coyne
