Principal's Corner

Congratulations to our 2nd grade students, as well as Ryley Leininger (gr.3) and Nancy Teista-Santizo (gr. 4), for completing their sacrament of First Holy Communion this past Saturday and Sunday. All three masses were a wonderful celebration of our Catholic faith and provided an opportunity for family and friends to show their support and love of the children. A special thank you goes to Mrs. Maria Vincent and Mrs. Tara Niland for educating and supporting the students throughout their preparation of the sacrament. We have the special opportunity to celebrate this sacrament as a whole school this Friday at 8:45am with our school mass, prepared for us by the second grade class. Please join us as we celebrate our second graders!

This Saturday morning our 8th graders continue their faith journey as they fully commit themselves to a Catholic life with the sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation mass begins at 10am and will be celebrated by Bishop Wang. Congratulations to our 8th graders!

It is the time of year where faculty changes are announced to the school community. We will have several changes this school year, which I wish to share with you all today.

Mrs. Angela Buttler, our current technology teacher, will be leaving OLA after 7 years of service and dedication to our school community. Mrs. Buttler and her husband, Alex, are expecting their second child in August and she will remain at home to care for her children. We are currently looking for a full time technology teacher/coordinator for the 2015-2016 school year.

Mr. Josh Wellman, our seventh grade teacher, will be leaving OLA after 2 years. Mr. Wellman and his wife, Marisyn, are expecting their first child in September and Mr. Wellman will remain at home to care the child. Mrs. Alicia Sico, our current 3rd grade teacher, has accepted the 7th grade position. Mrs. Kristina Renda Borella, an OLA alum, and second year teacher has been hired as the new third grade teacher for the 2015-2016 school year. Welcome back to OLA Mrs. Borella!

Mrs. Marg McCaffery, our devoted junior high resource teacher and co-founder of the Resource program here at OLA, will be retiring at the end of the school year, after 20 years of devoted service to our school community. Mrs. Monica Ruane has been shadowing Mrs. McCaffery in junior high resource this school year, in anticipation of this event. While Mrs. McCaffery will not be formally employed at OLA next year, she will continue to have an active role in Resource--assisting with the hiring of a new part-time resource teacher, supporting the new resource teacher and acting as an advisor to the Resource program. We are currently looking for a part-time resource teacher for grades 3-5.

Mrs. Donna McMorrow has been an integral part of our school community, acting as both 3rd and 5th grade homeroom teacher during her 27 years at OLA. After more than 35 years as a full-time teacher, she is moving down to part-time. Next year, she will be teaching regular 4th and 5th grade math as well as fulfilling the role of Vice Principal, in charge of student support. I am excited to announce this new position and look forward to working with Mrs. McMorrow in the school office! We are actively looking for a 5th grade teacher for the 2015-2016 school year.

I realize that all of this symbolizes change within our school community, and am aware that change is often difficult. I am confident in the faculty choices that have been made for next year, both Mrs. Sico, Mrs. Borella, and Mrs. McMorrow will be successful in their new positions. I am confident that our resource program, under the direction of our remaining resource teachers and the advisement of Mrs. McCaffery, will continue to strongly and successfully support our students. We have some wonderful candidates for our open positions and I am interviewing cautiously and carefully to find the right fit for our school. As always, I look to you for support of our school during these changes, and I promise to keep our parent community updated as we search for and hire additional members of our faculty.
