Yearbook Cover Design Competition - Grades 5-8

Share your artistic talents with us and help us design the year book cover for the 2022-23 yearbook!

Designs should be submitted electronically to by Friday, May 19.

The design should be for both the front and back cover - total size is 11" x 17". Copies of past yearbooks are available in the library if you need inspiration.

Shoutout to my amazing PTO board members for showing the teachers all the extra appreciation last week during OLMC’s Teacher Appreciation Week. We had a fun week filled with snack carts, coffee carts, breakfast, giant cookies, and a gift card giveaway. The teachers also enjoyed a fiesta luncheon on Friday thanks to a fantastic group of volunteers!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the families that have already made their $100 donation to PTO this year whether through RaiseRight (SCRIP) or by check. Your generosity allows us to fund 100s of activities throughout the year as well as purchase thousands of items from the Teacher’s wish lists every summer. There is still time to donate if you have not already done so. Continue using RaiseRight to purchase gift cards or feel free to send in a check with your student. Families that meet the $100 goal receive a $25 discount off next year’s book bill!! DEADLINE for donating is May 18th!

SAVE THE DATE for FIELD DAY! I have been working with Mrs. King and Mrs. Gardner to come up with some amazing ideas for this year’s event. Please stay tuned for volunteer opportunities. We will need a lot of parents to help make this day amazing! In the meantime, mark your calendars for May 30th. Our goal is to hold the event OUTSIDE so we will reserve May 31st as our backup😊 Thank you in advance for making this an amazing send-off for our students.
