Principal's Letter 

January 17, 2018

 Dear Families,
I was so touched by your generous gifts to the faculty and staff HOT Fund. All faculty, aides, office staff, and extended care personnel were given a gift to go shopping at the OLMC "Scrip Store". The notes below reflect their appreciation for their gift.  Please take a moment to read the gratitude felt by the faculty and staff. Your  spirit and generosity was appreciated by all those who work with your children on a weekly basis. Blessings to all of you in 2018.

Thank you very much for the kindness and support you have shown all of us here at Mount Carmel.  Your thoughtful donations to the HOT Fund were greatly appreciated by my entire family!  A large part of your generous gift went to outfit my older daughter for winter in New York with warm snow boots and thick scarves and sweaters (all machine washable - very important!).  The rest we will use for my younger daughter when she travels to Portland in February for Notre Dame's intercession program.  It's good to know that both of my girls will be warm and comfortable this winter!  Blessings to all in 2018.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity this past holiday season! Here's to a healthy and happy new year! 
Christine Keelan, Classroom Aide 

This year I found I can only keep patching things for so long before I simply can't any more.  I'm referring to my personal electronic devices like cell phone, DSL, portable house phones, etc. which all gave out at the end of the year.  With the help of your generous HOT Fund gift -- thank you -- I'm resigned to actually replace things.  I wish a trouble free 2018 for all of us.  (I'll miss my 2009 Nokia flip phone with its hinge in the middle, although pieces of it had departed earlier, but I simply refuse to give up my Hoover portable vacuum cleaner from 1974.)
Christopher Lane, Tech Support
