Our First Five-Day Week!

Sixth grade will once again be in charge of parking lot duty this year. We will continue to update the schedule as needed. Safety Schedule updated 9/1. I still have two holes that need to be filled if anyone is kind enough to volunteer, please email me at nystrom@olabruins.com.

MON SEP 14 is free dress for those who brought in a Western Dinner Dance dessert item and/or for those who went to Mass in uniform this weekend. There will be a 3rd grade bake sale on TUE SEP 15 and the Mixed Bag fundraiser goes home. The Catalogue fundraising is due WED SEP 16. October hot lunch menus are expected to go home THU SEP 17 and Parent Education Night is at 6pm in 8th grade. FRI SEP 18 we will have Assembly at 8am and it is free dress for $1. The Iowa assessments will start MON SEP 28. There are no makeups for these tests, so the school asks that you please reschedule appointments for the afternoon starting the 28th and for the following two weeks. Thank you.
