Conner O. shares his thoughts
at the 8th grade retreat today
Dear OLG Families,
It's our first day of Catholic Schools Week !!! Each day this week we focus on a different group in our community. Thank you to parents and volunteers today! See the Catholic Schools Week webpage for each days events plus links to Our Virtual Open House/tour held from yesterday! We hosted many newcomers to our community and it was a great opportunity for teachers and inquiring families to connect. As we transition back several of our classes to offering in-person instruction (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade this week), then we know there are many exciting changes taking place. Families who are staying remote, please understand the complexities of the "first day of school" after 11 months that our teachers are working on.
A special huge thank you to the Kuhn, Peck, Neary, Panpradid, Nickerson, and Estigoy families who were able to pop in for a quick workparty last Thursday afternoon to help get our classroom and campus ready! It is through Faith, Service, and partnering together that we continue to offer Excellence in our OLG School. I encourage you to connect with me personally as well in my M/W/F 2pm "Office Hour" zoom link (on the school calendar) for further communication connections! Read on for more info!

Postcards for the KIds!
The 2nd grade and EDC students produced some AMAZING nautical postcards which we have mailed to some of OLG’s Favorite celebrities. As we wait for these postcards to be returned to us (with much excitement), we wondered just how far can we spread word about OLG and our virtual auction?
We would love for you to contact family and friends, and to ask them to send a ‘Postcard to OLG’. Wishing us the best of luck for our auction, tell us where they are writing from and what their connection is to OLG. Will we receive a postcard from every US State? From every country? Can we reach the other side of the world? Let’s see just how far and wide the global OLG community reaches.
Postcards to be sent to OLG, 3401 SW Myrtle St, Seattle, WA 98126
