Thank you to all of our parents for all of your help and assistance in a successful Inaugural Halloween Parade.  We have taken all your suggestions for next year and plan to implement a longer parade, music throughout, and more.  The staff and I were very happy to see so many of you that came out, and hoped that going LIVE on Facebook helped out our parents who could not attend.  We look forward to next year!


A big thank you to Mrs. Paula Quann, Miss Stacy Krawiecki and members of our Junior and Youth Choirs for performing during Candlelight Night on Main Street. We drew a huge crowd to showcase our wonderful school!

Save the date for our annual Nativity Play, to be held on Dec. 18 at 1:15 pm in the gym. In addition to the relatives of those performing, we are inviting families with young children to attend so they can enjoy the show and see what OLGC is all about! Spread the word and warm some hearts!


Three of our very own 8th graders (James, Dylan, and Gabe) are hosting a gently used Shoe Drive to help provide much needed medical supplies, surgeries, and food for cats and kittens.  Any type of shoe can be donated (sneakers, boots, etc.)  Drop-off points will be in the Main Office, Gym, and Cafeteria. The Barrington TNR can provide further information:

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.
