We are off to an amazing start with 368 students in Grades Preschool-8. We held an All-School Assembly to welcome students, explain our theme of “Rise Up, Respect, Rely on God” and empower the children to give their best each day at this, their second home!
Our building just shines, classrooms buzz with student activity and our first All-School Mass was a testament to what drives our existence—that Jesus is at the center of all we do! On Aug. 1, PTO sponsored an Our Lady tradition of the Back-to-School Pool Party for the cool enjoyment of all school families. Hurray! The year has begun!
This week, teachers and parents alike are busy with two informational parent meetings. This sets the tone for clear expectations, strong partnerships, and a relationship supporting student success. We will participate in safety drills and Special Area classes of Art, Music, Physical Education, Technology and Middle school Spanish this coming week.
Of special note is our Child Care Ministry running from 7:15-3:00 each day and with Aftercare picking up from 3:00-6:00 PM, Our Lady provides a safe place of learning, nurturing and friendships for our Preschool and Pre Kindergartners all day, five days a week. Some young families are surprised to learn that Preschool can begin in Sept., Oct.—even Jan. once their little ones have turned 3 yrs. old in August, are potty-trained and show readiness for school. Since July is a bit too soon for some of our children, please keep this in mind as the year progresses and feel free to call me at 812-944-7676. We are pleased with our starting numbers, but I am certain the Preschool, Pre K and Child Care will continue to grow throughout the year.
Dear Our Lady Students,
Thank you for the positive start to the school year. How you have grown and changed in less than 9 weeks! It is so good to be with you again. Please be aware of how many people love you and are praying for you every day. While you study, practice, listen and learn, we are watching, caring, interceding for your well-being and promise. Be all that you can be this year! What a gift it is to be at Our Lady together!
