How About A NUD on Your Birthday?! green-blue-balloons.jpg
NEW this year! Students (and teachers) can now enjoy a No Uniform Day on their birthday! If they have a summer birthday, they can use their birthday NUD on their half birthday. If their birthday falls on a weekend or break, they can select the closest school day before or after the break that they prefer. If their birthday falls on a Mass day, they CAN use their birthday NUD. Other NUD passes cannot be used on Mass days. This NUD birthday celebration will begin on the second day of school. Here is the No Uniform Day (NUD) Policy as a reference. 
OLG Spirit Wear
Available Until 9/10 
Order Spirit Wear! All purchases for Spirit Wear need to be done via the Online Store (see link below). There will be an opportunity to try on the Uniform Approved Sweatshirt during orientation
next week (see us in the gymnasium). In addition, we will have limited attire, Bernies, as well as coffee/water bottles for purchase. Once the store closes, orders cannot be placed until we open "the store" again in October. So please plan accordingly.

classroom.
