We extend a huge thanks to Rikki McGuire and the Main Event Committee, Our Lady Men’s Group and our own middle school students who racked up some House points for their service at Sunday’s First Annual Family Fun Fest. What a beautiful day and great turn-out! A happy time was had by all with grilled burgers and hot dogs, bouncy houses, the dunking booth, games of Bingo and most importantly, genuine fellowship!
Bravo to our brave souls who took one for the team in the dunking booth, our wild and crazy teachers: Christy Russell-Read, Christine Castleberry, Amy Naville, Matt Stemle, Bob Hornung, Brandy Balser, Pat McGuire, Terri White, Kristie Ferree, Anne Woods and Sonja Russell led by our fearless leader, Pastor Fr. Eric! You added to the excitement of the day and we are grateful for such a fun-loving parish school family! Congratulations to the cake walk winners and thank you to Brent Rogers for being DJ Extraordinaire with his good-natured banter and song. If you missed it, plan for next year—this is sure to be a repeat! Also, mark your calendars now for Main Event 2017 on Sat., March 4 right here in Our Lady’s gymnasium. If you would like to join the Main Event Committee, please let us know as we welcome the fresh ideas of many to make Main Event a stellar success!
Our seventh graders thank you for your support of the mum sale for next year’s eighth grade trip to Washington, DC. Seventh grader, Cade Carver, had the highest sales total selling 120 mums and winning an I-tunes card! Mrs. Balser’s Kindergarten class had the highest percentage of sales at $618 and receives an out of uniform day!
We’ll see you on Tues., Sept. 27 for Candace Meyer’s Minds in Motion Talk from 6:30-8 PM in the gym. Child Care and food are available—just RSVP to the school office or online to PTO. Then, our last event before the start of Fall Break is PTO’s Our Lady Zesto Day on Friday, Sept. 30. Ice cream sounds like an awesome way to end the first nine weeks to me!
Dear Our Lady Students,
It’s your time to shine and show off your great work to your parents as we hold Parent-Teacher Conferences on Monday and Tuesday. If you got a slow start, the next quarter offers time to renew efforts and learn from the beginning of the year. I am glad you are here and so happy we have three quarters to make a difference and keep learning together.
