Dear Academy of Our Lady Families,
I am pleased to see your children are settled in and ready for the new school year. Please share the good news about AoOL with your friends and neighbors. We are hosting Buddy Days and Tours on October 3, 4, 12, November 9, 10.
Welcome to our new Student Council members. The Installation Ceremony on Sept. 29th demonstrated how committed our students are to the success of our school. The Student Council will help prepare our First Fridaymass at 9 am on Oct. 7th. Please keep in mind that Oct. 7th is an Early Dismissal at 12:15 pm. Aftercare will be available.
I join the HSA in thanking you for supporting the Kidstuff Coupon Book fundraiser, which ends Oct. 3rd. The HSA has been busy planning the Fall Social on Nov. 12th. This year's event supports the Music & Fine Arts Guild at AoOL. Mrs. Benus and a committee of volunteers have been working with your children to create the artwork that will be auctioned that evening.
On Oct. 4th, Image Art Studio will be here to take individual student photos. The class photos are scheduled for Oct. 12. Please reach out to HSA Chairperson Anastasia Matthews with any questions.
School will be closed on Monday, Oct. 10th for Columbus Day. When students return on Tuesday, Oct. 11th, they should be in regular uniform. They should NOT be in summer uniform (shorts and polos). It is fine for students to mix & match the "retired" uniform with the "new" uniform. Since there is a vendor delay on delivery of gym uniforms, students may still wear their own gym clothes if necessary. They should wear blue sweat pants & sweat shirts over the shorts & tees.
Homeroom teachers will reach out directly to parents regarding the upcoming Progress Report Conferences on Oct. 20 and Oct. 21.
