Dear OLG Families,
So far, our March Mathness (think staff members in OLG jerseys dribbling basketballs as a lead-in to Josh Sutton’s Oscar-worthy video about the importance of coaching students of all skill levels to achieve their potential!) Fund-a-Need has brought in $29,850. Wow! That will go a long way in fostering math skill development, problem solving, and real world application experience for all of our students – through support and enrichment programs during and outside of the school day. If you missed the auction, we’re still accepting donations, by check or credit card, to expand our reach in math enrichment and support, starting in 2014-15.
Lent began this week, with a wonderful Ash Wednesday Mass. At school, we’ll be taking 5 minutes of silence, school-wide on Mondays during Lent and every day during Holy Week, as well as delving into the richness of our faith tradition in our classrooms and through the Stations on April 4, led by our 7th grade. I invite you to look through the Lenten Opportunities flyer and consider setting aside time for one or more of the prayer or faith enrichment opportunities here at OLG during the season of Lent.
Please see the “Important Dates” section of this week’s newsletter for information about important upcoming events.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!
