Principal's Letter
Dear OLG Families,

Welcome to our new school year! We are the Many parts of the One Body of OLG. Staff, parents and parish receive this newsletter weekly. It holds great reminders (like "Spirit Wear" tomorrow) and excellent info (like more about our fabulous pastor in Fr. Kevin's bio). We hope you read it every week, or as you get familiar, at least know where you can find info! It is also published on our website as a "Post" on the front page in case your email goes down.

Tonight, at 6:30pm in the School Hall (entrance of 34th Ave), I look forward to greeting all our K-5 parents and guardians and welcoming you into our curriculum night activities.
Middle School families, we'll see you next Thursday! I'll keep it short today so you have time to read and digest all that this little weekly newsletter holds!

Thanks for a great start to the school year!
Yours in Christ,

Anton Kramer
