The month of May provides many opportunities for celebration and gratitude including thanking our Mothers for bringing us into this wonderful world! At OLMC we extend a heartfelt message to all our Mothers for the loving sacrifices they make day in and day out. The month of May is also an opportunity to celebrate Mary, the Mother of the Church and of us all. Seek to honour her with an extra ‘Hail Mary’ or pray the Rosary.
Grade 6 and 9 parents are asked to mark their calendars on May 10 (Grade 9) and May 12 (Grade 6) for the first round of our Provincial Achievement Test's in English Language Arts. A good night’s sleep, hearty breakfast, and some extra writing time will help our students feel prepared and confident for these assessments.
We will be celebrating Our Lady of Mount Carmel Feast Day on Friday May 20th, beginning our celebration in the gym at 9:00 a.m. That is the same day that Alberta Health will be onsite providing Immunizations to our Grade 5 & 9 students.
On May 24, Junior High students will participate in the annual OLMC Track & Field day at the nearby Rollie Miles Field (right next to Scona High School). Then, on May 25 at 7:00 p.m., we will be having our Spring Music Extravaganza in our gymnasium.
At this time of year we always remind parents that student's attire should be modest and appropriate for a Catholic School. How they dress can impact our learning environment, for better or for worse, so let’s make an effort to ensure it is for the former and not the latter!
In closing, we turn our thoughts and prayers to the residents of Fort McMurray as they bravely deal with the devastating wild fire. Many have relocated to Edmonton and we are ready, willing, and able to welcome their children into our school for the remainder of the year. May God bless them all and give them strength in the days and months ahead.
