Week 11

Double Mass Week

On MON NOV 2 we will celebrate All Souls Day with a School Mass. Full uniform is required for all. You may bring PE clothes and change into them after Mass.

There will be no snack or lunch sold through the hall on TUE NOV 3 due to elections being held within. Candle orders are due.

You and the rest of your family can have free dress on WED NOV 4 if you have your Golf fundraiser money turned in.

The 8th grade will be going on a field trip THU NOV 5. Since we’re already going to Mass on MON and FRI, we won’t be going THU. You will see Mr. G from 8:15-10:15 for science and social studies, then have me at the regular 10:30-noon time. In the afternoon you will practice for Friday’s Mass with Mrs. McConnell.

6th grade will be hosting the First FRI Mass on NOV 6 at 8:15am. Noon dismissal and “Monsters, Inc.” in the hall.

Reading Boards are due MON NOV 9.

In an effort to make myself more available to our students after school, I’ll begin posting on my Edmodo page again. If you’re not a member already, please follow this link to join my group: https://edmo.do/j/wtr95q Using Edmodo you can ask questions about anything OLA related and I or a fellow Bruin will help answer those questions as soon as possible. Parents, please send me an email if you’d like to join the Parent group within Edmodo and I’ll send you an invite.

Gradelink is our most important form of communication. Please check it weekly at a minimum. If anything needs clarification, my email address is nystrom@olabruins.com. First trimester will be over before you know it, so keep an eye on grades and talk to your teachers!

iPad apps to download (so far) include: Duolingo, Spelling City, Google Drive, Stock Market Game, Yahoo Finance, iPad Calculator, Edmodo, Handouts, The Pope App, and Liturgical Calendar.


All students are expected to complete 20 minutes of Fact Master in MobyMax nightly, MON-THU.

8th: Secret Code presentations will conclude on WED NOV 4.

7th: Larger than Life presentations will begin on THU NOV 5.

6th: Bingo! presentations will begin on THU NOV 5. Practice for your part in the FRI NOV 6 Mass.
