A Message from Ms. B:

Some clarification for our new families, from our handbook regarding gym uniforms:

UNIFORMS FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION Grades Kindergarten, 1, and 2 need only gym shoes that are non-marking. Grades 3 through 8 need to wear the tee shirt and shorts purchased through the school’s Spiritwear Coordinator. This is a grey tee shirt with the O.L.L. logo and navy blue mesh or O.L.L. sports shorts with the O.L.L. logo. Non-marking gym shoes are required. When the weather is cold, navy or grey sweatpants are permitted.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Never hesitate to call and ask questions or for clarification!

While working today, I received a call from my daughter, who is a firefighter. She had just heard about the credible threat of an active shooter at Princeton HS. As a former teacher at Princeton HS, I still have many friends there and started going through every and all possibilities in my mind. Thank God, it was a hoax and no one was injured but I considered the emotional repercussions the staff and students might experience. As a community, we need to be aware of what is happening around the city and educate our students (remaining mindful of their age level). Education is the first layer of protection. Let’s promise to educate our students regarding social media, especially TikTok challenges and the consequences of pranks and hoaxes. We can also encourage our students that if they “see something, hear something, say something”. We will always work to keep your students safe. Be safe this weekend and enjoy the weather. Pray for an end to violence, pray for safety and peace.

A Message from Ms. B:

Our PE teacher, Mr. Jones, has been understanding regarding the supply chain with regard to gym uniforms, but will not allow students who are not in the correct uniform participate in PE class beginning this week. Just as students need to bring their pen and pencil to their core classes, they need to have their PE uniforms to participate in class. Thank you for your help with this.

Please make sure to refer to the handbook or call the main office if you do not know the proper procedures to dropping off or picking up students. If someone new is driving, please inform them of the procedures. Never hesitate to call and ask questions or for clarification! 

Go Tigers,
Ms. B

A Message from Ms. B:

This week was a lot better than last week. How can that be? I’ve heard teachers singing in the hallways, praising their students for their great behavior and have even witnessed some high fives. It’s been fun walking into classrooms (it’s always Math class, never English!!) and interacting on an academic level. Students are checking Progress Book and discussing with teachers how to improve their grades. The second grade were all quiet when returning from Music class, and the 8th grade sat with their buddies at Mass on Wednesday. (I even heard some singing from the 8th graders!)

Fr. Jim told us to listen…patiently. That really resonated with me and I thought about Lourdes. We have patiently waited for things to come together, for us to really see the “vision” we started working toward. We have worked hard to offer our students quality academics and continue to have many scholarship winners to our local high schools. We are “outfitting” our STEAM Lab with some really cool things! For “hands-on” critics thinking and problem solving. We hope for the health of our students, both physical and mental and have incorporated Health as a class into our curriculum. We hired our very own Mental Wellness Specialist, Mrs. Brown, who helps with the health of our brain and the social parts of life and Mr. Jones focuses on the body health, nutrition and eating healthy. We found a new Religion textbook that will be informative and meet the spiritual needs of our students while they are learning about Jesus and His Teachings.

I’m not saying we’re perfect but we are “pawesome”. If you want to see the good works of the Tigers, c’mon in and volunteer! We have a library that could be re-catalogued, we need daily readers for Kindergarten, and help in the cafeteria. If you are feeling slightly daring, you could always volunteer for recess duty or freshen up the grounds with some gardening. Great things are happening around campus. As always, I’m glad for the Opportunities to Lead, Learn, and Serve with our Tigers!

Go Tigers,
Ms. B
