OLGCA on TV!

One more day to donate to Operation Gratitude!

This morning, a reporter and cameraman from The Tablet and Currents on CTN came to do a story about OLGCA and our drive for toiletry and personal items for Operation Gratitude. (The reporter saw it on our school calendar online and called to ask me about it.) They interviewed Ms. Donnelly, our Student Council officers, and me about what prompted the drive and what we hoped to accomplish by it.

It is going to air tonight on CTN at 7:30 and 11:30, and again at 6:30 am tomorrow.

Time Warner Cable channel 97
Cablevision channel 30
Live stream: www.netny.tv/watch-now

It will be up on demand on the website in a few days.

There may also be a writeup in the Tablet, but it's not for sure yet - keep your eyes peeled!

Google Apps for Education Login

STUDENTS: Do not login at gmail.com. Gmail is disabled for student accounts.

Go to admin.google.com and log in there. If Classroom does not appear on the list, click on the 9-square menu (looks like a phone keypad) in the upper right, click on "More" at the bottom, and Classroom should appear.

Hot Lunch

When going to the Hot Lunch form "tab" you will notice that forms for Penne Vodka Package ($4.00), Mozzarella Sticks ($4.00) and Rice Balls are missing. Due to "website" construction you will need to hand write the Penne Vodka, Mozzarella Sticks and Rice Ball (Rice Ball Package - $4.00, Rice Ball $3.00) forms at this time. Thank you.

UPK registration

Parents of Nursery students from OLG who graduated in June should either have been contacted by DOE or will be contacted soon.

Parents with UPK-eligible children, who did not attend Nursery here, who would like to enroll in the PreK program being held at this site should visit https://maps.nyc.gov/upk/ and click the "Call Me" button to have a representative contact you.

Or, call 212-637-8000 to speak directly to someone at the Department of Ed. The proper name is "PreK Center at 385 Avenue W" and the program code is 21Z077.

Please keep in mind that although PreK is being held at our site, it is not being conducted by Our Lady of Grace. Therefore all registration has to go through the Dept. of Education, and PreK students will follow the public school calendar.

Thank you for your continued patience with this process.

~~~Mrs. Sarno

A Note from the Nurse

Dear Parents:

Medical forms were issued to Nursery and Pre-K. They must be returned in September with all highlighted areas filled out.

All students entering 6th grade are required to have a Tdap & V2U#2 vaccines. The forms were sent home with all missing immunizations listed. A proof of immunization must be sent to school in September.

All children who had MAF services last year were issued new forms. If your child requires this service, please send completed forms at the beginning of the school year.

Students are not allowed to bring any medication to school and the Nurse cannot administer any medication without proper paperwork. If your child needs to take meds during school either daily or as necessary, please contact school nurse at 718-375-2081.

Have a great summer!

G. Auranch, OLG Nurse
