A Message from Ms. B:
Hi Tiger Families! The weather is definitely feeling like fall and the smell of apple cider wafts through the air reminding me of days as a child searching for the perfect pumpkin and munching on caramel apples. At school, fall is always a time for Homecoming (Hoco, as they say now), football rivalries, and conferences. Just checking on how everyone is doing before we head into the winter season.
OLL works to make the Academics accessible for each child. How does your student study? Does your student complete homework? Does your student actively participate in class? If you missed conferences, don’t hesitate to reach out and request a meeting with your student’s teachers. We want to help your student progress to their full potential.
OLL wants each student to feel safe and important. The positive Behaviors of one student can improve the feelings and behaviors of many others, potentially lifting their confidence. Conversely, the poor behavior choices of one student can adversely effect another student or many more. With the addition of our school counselor, Mrs. Brown, who is busy working with individual students on social skills, as well as small groups, we feel our students will be empowered self-advocates, able to cope with many things life throws at them.
One behavior we, as a community, need to work on, is our choice of words. Children are sponges and soak up the things they hear around them, whether it’s at home, in the car, or out at the store. Inappropriate language includes cussing, name calling, and racial slurs. This is completely unacceptable and we all need to have an active part in stopping this behavior. Your children should not be parroting this language, especially in school. What might your students be saying in school?
OLL hopes all students and families actively work to make our faith Community an active one, starting with our Annual Trunk or Treat and Chili Cook-off. This is a safe and fun Lourdes community activity that allows us all to gather after 4pm Mass, meet some new families, and chat with some old friends we haven’t seen in awhile. We want Lourdes to be a welcoming and inviting place for all community members and potential members! We all want to see the community thrive with many different families.
Let’s do what we can to continue making Lourdes a place for all, and we hope to see you this weekend at Mass.
