New Early Morning Entry Procedures for January to March

With the arrival of the cold weather and temperatures often extremely frigid as a result of the wind chill factor, we are once again implementing the early morning entry procedure commencing January 8, 2018 until March 29, 2018.  As opposed to arriving at school and waiting in the school yard for the bell to ring at 8:55 AM, students will come directly into the school starting at 8:40 AM.  All students who either walk to school or are driven will enter the school through the front main doors.  Students who take the bus will come in through the back doors closest to the Bus Bay.  Upon entering the school, students will go directly to their classrooms and prepare their materials for the start of the school day.  They will be supervised in their classrooms, and as such, no students will be allowed to remain outside prior to the start of the school day as there will be no supervision provided in the school yard.
School will begin promptly at 8:55 AM.  We ask that you please ensure that your child arrives at school between 8:40 AM and 8:55 AM each day.  If your child is being driven to school, the drop off procedures remain the same.  Please do not stop in the front of the school as this is a Fire Route and therefore, parking or stopping is not permitted.  You are welcome to park in a parking spot and safely escort your child to the front door.  
We thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation with respect to our new morning entry procedure for the winter months of January to March.

Counting Down To Christmas Math Activity Afternoon

Staff and students at OLMC were involved in an afternoon of fun math activities and games with a Christmas theme.  The goal was to have fun, play and learn at the same time.  Can you estimate how many Christmas trees long you are?
