Sleepless in Lethbridge, Again

September 5, 2016

welcome to OLA

Dear Students/Parents:

My daughter just told me to get some sleep and then laughed.  She reminded me that I never sleep before the first day of school.

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Our Lady of the Assumption School.  We are truly looking forward to supporting and learning with all the members of our learning community.

We are excited to welcome new students, families, and staff to our school this year.  New teaching staff include: Mrs. Orr (Gr. 1/2), Mr. Tratch (Gr. 3), Miss Chief Moon (Kindergarten), Miss Marten (Gr. 1/2 & Gr. 6), and Miss Pedersen (Gr. 4).  Also, we welcome some new Educational Assistants: Mr. Gaudio, Mr. Cahoon, and Mrs. Hillier.  Finally, we have a University of Lethbridge PSIII student, Miss Kobbert (mentored by Mrs. Nemecek).

The focus of this school year will be on growing in our faith and experiencing the richness of Catholic Education, developing literacy and numeracy skills that will prepare students for a changing future, and helping First Nations, Metis, and Inuit students achieve equitable educational outcomes.  Also, we are excited about our new Faith Plan called Growing in Faith Together (G.I.F.T.).  This year’s faith theme is Rooted in Christ.

Are you a bus student?  Please check the new bus schedules as they are a bit different.  We offer bussing in most of south Lethbridge and in the area north of 10th Avenue South (Fleetwood neighbourhood).  Please click this logo for bus maps:
