I would like to announce our final faculty hire for the new school year. Mrs. Andrea Bergeron will be our Gr. 6 Literature and Language Arts teacher. She will also teach Religion to students in Gr. 5. Andrea is a Clarksville native and a member of St. Anthony’s. A recent grad of IUS, Andrea brings high energy, a love of reading and writing along with a background in supporting learning differences. Her close family connections and love of her Catholic faith add a strength to our roster of educators. Andrea joins our middle school team as we continue with 2 classes at each grade level.
Mrs. Vicky Edelen will join Connie Andres and Barbara Aemmer in the school office. Vicky fills the position vacated by Dots Wild as receptionist at Our Lady. Dots is looking forward to expanding her duties as grandmother this fall so we wish her the best and welcome Vicky to our hospitable, productive school office. Vicky worked in the school office for 19 years at Providence and is a member of Holy Family Parish. Ivy Tech Early Childhood student, Megan Howe, joins our Child Care Ministry staff working closely with Angie Troutman and Amy Naville to give Preschoolers child-centered, play-based learning during their time not in Preschool or Pre K classes. Thanks for your warm Our Lady welcome of Andrea, Vicky and Megan.
Dear Our Lady Students,
Eighth graders are busy reading Ender’s Game for Mrs. Russell-Read while seventh graders should have started their copies of the Outsiders. Your teachers are reading this summer, too, as we all keep our brains busy and learning. Look for the next edition of the Parish Newsletter—it will be filled with stories about the school ministry. With letters from Maria Popson, Bryce Carl and more. Here’s to a wonderful Fourth of July weekend and great times with God, family and friends! I’ll see you at mass this weekend…

Our Lady has been working with School Commission and PTO this past year to have a more precise dress code and cost-effective uniform. PTO does not mark-up any uniform items. A small profit is made by PTO on spirit wear clothing.
It has been reported throughout the year that all polos must have the Our Lady logo for 2016-17. If any Our Lady families have a hardship with purchasing uniforms, please contact the school office and we will work to offer some assistance.
The full Dress Code for 2016-2017 is available under Handbooks/Policies/Forms.
