OLA School Tours Offered on Tuesdays
OLA is once again hosting our annual Tuesday Tours for prospective parents in grades K-8. Tours will be held every Tuesday during the months of October and November at 10:45am. All prospective parents are encouraged to attend the tours, which begin in the school office. 
Adopt A Family

Our Lady of Angels School will be working with Mission Delores and Saint Peters schools in San Francisco again this year on our annual Adopt-a-Family program. This is a wonderful opportunity for our school community to share our many blessings with families living in the City, and sending their children to Mission Delores or Saint Peters. For many of these families, the gifts we provide will be the only gifts they receive this Christmas. Typically, we fulfill the families list of needs and include wrapping paper so they can prepare the gifts themselves. Later this month, we will be asking for OLA families to sign-up. Many people partner with friends to sponsor a family. Please consider participating in this wonderful program to create some Christmas cheer. Watch for sign-ups coming soon. For more information, please contact Ahnna DudleyColleen Malouf or Cherie McGee

 

Principal's Corner

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

What a great first quarter we have had at Our Lady of Angels School! Now, here we are in November with the Thanksgiving holiday upon us. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every member of the OLA community for the gifts you give so freely, and with such joy, energy, and spirit. The support we share as a community is part of the rich history and tradition that is Our Lady of Angels School, and is something that sets us apart.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
~ Colossians 3:17

In the spirit of loving others, our students have embraced a number of opportunities this fall to reach out to our greater community including collecting items for St. Vincent de Paul’s Wee Care program, performing acts of kindness in our Leaves for Love Program, volunteering to clean up the Bay front, assisting at Catholic Worker House, participating in the St. Jude Math-a-thon, and many more opportunities. Our students are thoughtful and compassionate, and their joy is contagious.

In the spirit of caring for others, our faculty and staff at Our Lady of Angels are second to none in their commitment to our students. This group of professionals cares about our students deeply, and routinely goes the extra mile to provide an environment designed to make it easy to learn, grow, and thrive. Our faculty and staff are selfless and passionate, and their enthusiasm is inspiring.

In the spirit of giving to others, our parents and families have provided time, talent and treasure in every aspect of school life, from volunteering, coaching, baking and crafting, just to name a few!! Our parents and families are supportive and generous, and their energy sustains us and lifts us up as we go along the important work of educating our students.

This Thanksgiving is a good time for all of us to reflect on our many blessings, and to continue to use our many gifts to benefit not only our beloved OLA community, but also our broader society and world.

May your time with family and friends be joyful and blessed. Happy Thanksgiving!
