Wildcat Weekly 3/28/19

Thank you to Mrs. Amy Schlanger, Mrs. Amy Degano and the numerous volunteers for their hard work and efforts to make this year's auction such a huge success. What a fun night, joining together as an OLGC community, to support our wonderful Parish community. Additionally, thank you hundreds of times over for your incredible generosity and support to the Wildcat Fund. Special thanks to Mr. Tom Weithman and his entire committee for helping us launch this crucial campaign. I am humbled by your kindness and generosity in helping us to make OLGC the best place for our students!

Our students are always working hard and sharing their talents and abilities with the OLGC community in many ways. Occasionally they even get recognition beyond the walls of school. Mrs. Iannone's eighth grade English students wrote essays, which were entered into the 2019 American Legion Essay Contest on the following prompt: "How can we address and prevent veteran homelessness in our communities?" The following students earned monetary awards: Reagan B. First-Place; Rebeca U., Second-Place; and Adam M., Honorable Mention. We are very proud of these students whose writing effort and success will be recognized at a ceremony on April 3rd at Patriot Hall in Vienna, along with Vienna Firefighters and Police who will also receive awards at that time. Town of Vienna officials have also been invited to this event. Many thanks to Mrs. Iannone for her efforts.

Just a reminder that students may not carry prescription and over the counter medications to school. Please reference pages 43-44 in our Parent Student Handbook regarding medications and their administration at school.

I hope you were able to join the Celebrate Calm presentation this week as the children certainly learned quite a bit from the assembly. Many thanks to the PTO for sponsoring this event and providing us with the opportunity to hear about how to help our children in a positive manner.

Have a wonderful weekend, hopefully spring will come back to us and the sun will shine warmly for us all!

Adrianne Jewett, Principal
