A Message from Ms. B:

One of my second graders asked the other day: “How come when Scout comes to school everyone is so happy? Why is Scout so good at making us smile?” I answered, “Because Scout has only known love and kindness from everybody she’s encountered her entire life. And we hope she stays that way.” “Is that why you bring her here, Ms. B? Because we’re good and she loves us?” Of course, all of our students are “good”. I like to think that our students are the best. The best they can be each day. It can be challenging to follow the rules, interact with friends and peers, participate in instruction, and smile (like you mean it!) all in one day, every day, five days a week. Our students aren’t “perfect” but the inner fortitude they have to get back up and try again, makes them the best. Their wellmeaning intentions to do the right thing (even if it turns out a bit ‘wrong’) makes them the best. And their willingness to learn makes them the best. It would be great to keep our students surrounded only by love and kindness, like Scout. But the reality is as our students get older, they are bombarded by social media posts on Instagram, Snapchat, and influences from other outlets. Some might think the task too daunting. We can only keep loving our kiddos and demonstrating kindness, every day. “Tucker, I bring Scout because she makes you as happy as she makes me. And I think you make her happy, too.” Have a great weekend, Tigers!

Join Us for Sunday Mass

In June the bishops of Ohio lifted the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation that they granted in March of 2020 due to the pandemic. So we invite your families to resume the practice of regularly participating in the celebration of the Eucharist in-person with the parish community. Hearing the Word of God and receiving the Body of Christ in Holy Communion can strengthen you and your children to cope with the stresses of these difficult times. We welcome you to pray & worship God with us on Saturday evening or Sunday morning.

A Message from Ms. B:

Fall is getting closer and that means crazy weather! The last two days we have experienced chilly weather, which means… pants. We do allow our young men to wear shorts throughout the year (due to a very convincing essay written by a former student). On students’ “gym days”, students are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather (not just their shorts). If your student would like to wear sweatpants during the school day on their gym day, they must be the Lourdes sweatpants that can be purchased through our spiritwear coordinator, Lindsey Jones. (More info will be coming!) Otherwise, sweatpants can be worn outside only (removing them once they enter the building). Tights and leggings (navy blue, black, or white) can be worn under uniform skirts or shorts.

A gentle reminder that we do not allow “hoodies” to be worn in the building. If a student has one on, they will be asked to remove it. Students can wear the quarter-zip Lourdes pullovers or solid navy blue, black, or white sweaters.

Next week, we will be sending home interims with students with grades below a ‘C’ average. There is plenty of time for a student to improve and that is the purpose in sending home a formal interim. We like to see and help all of our students succeed. Please reach out to your students’ teachers if you have questions or concerns. 

We hope you have a restful and enjoyable weekend, Ms. B

A Message from Ms. B:
It’s nice to see all the learning happening in the hallways and classrooms. The teacher voices coming from classrooms and hardworking student groups are music to my ears. And the fist bumps and high fives are a warm salute as I walk down the halls. It’s good to be back in the halls of OLL. Thank you for the emails, prayers, and cards; they were a welcomed panacea! This Tiger cannot be kept down for too long, much to my husband’s chagrin. Just a few thoughts for the week: If you are concerned about your students’ academic or behavioral progress, please reach out to their teachers. Interims come out October 1 but we would like to correct things as soon as we can. We always prefer to be proactive not reactive. A gentle reminder to all regarding the masks: if your student wears a mask, they will not have to quarantine unless they are showing symptoms should someone around them be a probable or positive case. We want all of our students here, everyday (unless they are ill!). Regardless if you signed the exemption or not:

• Masks must be worn by all students in the hallways
• Masks must be worn in some areas of the building where safe distance cannot be achieved or guaranteed (such as the library)
• Parents and volunteers must mask in the building If you are planning to volunteer or attend a student field trip as a chaperone, you must complete SafeParish training. If you were up to date on your Virtus bulletins this summer, your account should have transitioned to Safe Parish. Please make sure to update your account and complete the new bulletins. We have attached the directions to assist you. For additional assistance, please reach out to Ed Bayliss at or 513.922.0715, ext. 3324. We hope you have a restful and enjoyable weekend! Ms. B
