Thank you to all who participated in our Primary Open House on Saturday! We were very busy registering new students! Keep spreading the word about our great school!


On October 25, OLGC will raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer research. Students will have a free dress down day in which they can wear pink, pink, pink. Socks, shirts, wigs, and other accessories are allowed and encouraged! Though this is a free dress down day, students are encouraged to donate $1 to breast cancer research. Student Council reps will be around the week before October 25 to collect any donations.

We will hold a school costume parade at 10:30 am Oct. 31. Parents, family and friends are welcome to come and take photos or walk with your child. PLEASE DO NOT BRING CANDY TO THE PARADE. Students will receive treats during their class parties at 2:15 pm. We will start on Main Street, walk down to Church Street, up Prospect and back to the parking lot. Please do not park in the parking lot! Click here for the HALLOWEEN PARADE AND COSTUME RULES. 


There will be a Halloween Dance/Costume Party on Thursday, Oct. 26 from 7-9 PM in the gym. Students in grades 5-8 are welcome. Tickets are $5. Please turn in your slips and money to Mr. Quinn (7A) by Oct. 23. There will be refreshments, DJ, and prizes for those with the best costume, most creative costume, and best group costume. Make sure you come dressed in your Halloween costume! Please note that the Halloween Parade costume expectations also apply to the Halloween Social.


It is a wonderful idea to have additional community gatherings off campus to celebrate the many holidays.  Please enjoy the time together and encourage all classmates/parents to participate in these events if one is being held.

At this time, AM Care will end on Dec. 1, 2017.


AS A REMINDER:  In an ongoing effort to keep your children safe, please be advised that your child is not permitted to wait by the school entrance doors before 8:05; there is no supervision before this time. Please note temperature drops with winter coming and other weather concerns. Names of students waiting outside prior to 8:05 will be taken and parents will receive warnings. 


Please spread the word about our biggest fall fund-raiser via social media! Buy your tickets now! We are also looking for donations of electronics, game tickets and other items to be auctioned off.
Click on GO FOR THE GOLD for all the information.


Our Battle of the Books program for Grades 7 & 8 will soon be starting. The program is

an exciting and challenging activity for students who enjoy reading. We meet on Thursdays in the school library, just one hour a week. We read, discuss the books, have mini-competitions – all to prepare for the regional competition in the spring.

I hope to see many of you at our introductory meeting on Thursday, October 19, from 3:00 to 4:00 in the school library. In the meantime, visit the library and check out one or more of the Battle of the Books titles to get a head start on reading!
