Principal's Letter
Dear OLG Families,

Don't forget this Friday is our "Early-Bird Donation Deadline" for Auction procurements. Get your Amazon gift certificates, cash, or donated items in this week and this helps all the hard working Auction Team make this event the best it can be!!!

This weekend is full of events at OLG: CYO Dinner on Saturday night, CRS Fair Trade Sale (with 3rd graders selling baked goods), auction announcements at Mass, and the Over 65 Dinner put on by our 5th grade class! Thank you to all the many hands at work this weekend, sharing and serving our community.

Next week we have a shortened week. Remember the half-day of classes on Wednesday (EDC and ELC available regular times), and full-days off on Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving Holiday. And we have much to be thankful for... a thriving community, excellent teachers, and fabulous friends to name a few. You'll be receiving a letter this upcoming week kicking-off our School Fund Drive. You will be invited to join together in recognizing what it takes for our school to continue to Grow in the Light. Let us all be thankful for the gifts we have and what we can share with others!
Yours in Christ,

Anton Kramer
