OLGC e-Newsletter- June 26th, 2019

Dear Parents,

As we break for summer, we wish the best to all our families.  Special thanks to all those families who have shown their generosity and gratitude by supplying us with an abundance of treats, gifts and summer well-wishes.  May you have a wonderful summer spent with family and friends.  We look forward to seeing each one of our students in September to live out our 2019/2020 theme: “I Can Do All Things Through Christ” For those students leaving OLGC School, including our Grade Sevens, the staff and I wish you the best in your future schools. For the rest of you, see you September 3rd at 8:45 a.m.

Next year our school will be evaluated by the Ministry of Education and by the CISVA in mid-October. We look forward to showcasing all that we do at OLGC School and look forward to a positive result.
