ANNUAL FUND DONOR THANK YOU
Thank you very much to everyone who has supported OLV through our Annual Fund, now concluding its sixth year!
Please click here for the full list of donors that we thank from the bottom of our OLV heart!

FIELD DAY- FRIDAY, MAY 27TH
On Friday, May 27th, the entire school will participate in Field Day on the campus of Our Lady of Victory.  Lunch will be provided.  PK3 will be dismissed at 12:45pm.  Grades PreK-4-8th will be dismissed from school at 1:00pm.  
NO EXTENDED DAY WILL BE HELD ON FIELD DAY
Students who will be leaving Field Day on their own must have a written, signed note from a parent or permission on file in the school office to leave the premises. 
A water bottle will be provided to all students on Field Day.  Please remember to apply sunscreen at home.  Students should wear blue or white reflecting their team and also wear sneakers.
PLEASE NOTE: While pizza lunch will be provided, OLV recognizes that some of its students face a variety of dietary preferences or restrictions (e.g. diabetes, vegan, celiac disease, food color allergies, egg allergies, dairy allergies, other nut allergies, etc.). However, due to the variety and complexity of dietary preferences in our community, it is impossible to accommodate every child by ensuring every food product available at school events is acceptable for every child. Therefore, parents with children who have dietary preferences or restrictions are encouraged to provide food that meets their child’s specific needs that day.

CARLINE SURVEY
Please, help!  6th grade students are currently learning about ways in which different activities can impact the environment and climate change.  Please click here to fill out the survey they created to help them gather information for their project. Thanks!

CONFIRMATION PARENT & CANDIDATE MEETING- DATE CHANGE
All families of current 6th & 7th grade students who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation next Spring should plan to attend a meeting on Sunday, May 22nd, from 9:15am to 10:15am in Hess.
