We cannot thank our Committee Chairs/ Volunteers/ amd PTA enough for all their hard work, blood, sweat, tears, and support to Good Counsel.  The amount of dedication that these ladies, and men, have shown is truly amazing. Knowing that this is a thankless job, they all gladly and unwaveringly gave their time and efforts.
Committee Chairs and all the volunteers for Go For The Gold, Designer Bag Blingo, and The Fashion Show have all truly taken an ownership perspective of the fate of our school and its ability to serve our parents, teachers, and above all – the children.

Thank you for all the energy and time you have given!  Our Lady of Good Counsel relies on events such as these, and we thank all the attendees who keep these events sold out every year!  Many blessing and prayers! -Fr. Damian, Fr. Jack, and Dr. Chiarelli

PARENTS: As a reminder- Please do not use the bus lane for drop off or pick up.  The bus companies reported this issue on multiple occasions. We assured them that our parents would be cooperative and mindful going forward.  Thank you.

AM Arrival

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 season and other weather concerns.

Also, documentation of names of students will be taken, that are waiting outside prior to 8:05.  Parents will be receiving the necessary contacts home as warnings.  

After School Concerns

  1. Please note that after our 3:00 pm dismissal, all car/walker students are under their parent's supervision.  Any child left without a parent is to report back into the building. These students will report to Aftercare, and the normal fees will apply.  Any student that remains in the parking lot must be under parent supervision. The school will not be held liable for students unattended.

  2. Students/Parents must use the CROSSWALK.  We were notified that students/parents are crossing throughout the streets, and must be using the designated crosswalks.
