BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT!

September 22, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight! We will gather in the gym at 7:00 p.m. After prayer, introductions, and some words from Fr. Tino and Mrs. Sarno, parents will have two sessions in which they can see teachers. We hope this will help families with more than one child to see more teachers.

Please remember this is not a conference evening, and the teachers will not be having private meeetings with parents. This is a Welcome Back and Getting to Know You kind of evening. We are looking forward to seeing you all!

Weekly Reminders

Note to all parents and students: Please be respectful of our neighbors!

-There have been some issues regarding our neighbors. We have received calls asking that we refrain from blocking driveways, sitting on steps, dropping garbage on the sidewalk or street, etc. Please be mindful of our community and taking care of the people and places around us.

-Parents, it is important that EVERY student return the E-Rate survey. Funding depends in part on percentage of surveys returned, and it is calculated by total enrollment, not by number of families. Remember that each child that returns the survey by Friday, September 12 will get to dress down for free on Thursday, September 18!
If the survey is not in by today, it does still need to be returned, but the dress down will not be available.
IF YOUR CHILD WAS ABSENT TODAY (Friday) and brings it in Monday, he/she will get the dress-down credit for Thursday.

-Paid dress down begins in two weeks, on SEPTEMBER 26. Please see Mrs. Silvery if you need assistance with that.
If you accidentally dressed down today thinking this was the start, then you just have to skip the September 26 dress-down.

-The website is running more smoothly now; however, we are aware that some are still having issues. They are being worked on and in some cases may take a little time to resolve. Thank you for your patience with this slightly bumpy start.

Website update

Monday, September 8, 2014

The website is mostly up and running. We are aware that there are still glitches and rest assured that every issue you report to us or to the teacher is passed along immediately to the team working on the site.

Please be aware that the website should never replace a student writing down homework in class, as they are given ample time to do. It is essential to build responsibility that they are held accountable for this everyday task.

If you continue to have problems, please continue to let the office know. That way we can make sure your issue gets dealt with in a timely manner. Thank you for your continued patience and support.

School Handbook

Due to technical difficulties (a stubborn copier!) not all classes were able to receive their paper copies of the handbook today. However, you can still view the handbook by going to the "Parents" button on the top of this page, and clicking on "Parent/Student Handbook". Thank you.

Website Registration

Please re-register on this new site!

Parents and students, if you have not registered on this new site olgbk.org, please take a moment and do that today. Use the tab in the upper right hand corner to begin. You need to do this even if you were already registered on the old site. Thank you.

Our website is under construction!

Please be patient as we improve our web presence to be bigger and better. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please give us a call in the office at 718-375-2081!
