From the Principal, Mrs.DelGenio

     
    Our Lady of Mercy Regional School encompasses all the necessary ingredients to develop the whole child. Character development is inherent in the curriculum.   Only grades 4 and 6 are tested on a State level, and students are not pressured to learn. They are nurtured in a caring learning environment.The Before-Care and After-Care Programs provide your child with a safe, secure place to do their work until you arrive. The many clubs and activities, including golf, track, and S.T.E.M., help enrich all areas of your child's social, academic, and physical growth. Call OLM for an application, and we will set up an appointment.

    God bless you in all you do!
    ~Mrs. L. DelGenio

    Announcements

    It is with great pleasure to announce the students of OLM have collectively read over 1,000 books during the month of March. Since they have achieved this marvelous literacy challenge, they will receive 5 successive dress down days. The dates are:
    Thurs., Apr. 10th, Fri., Apr. 11th, Mon., Apr. 14th, Tues., Apr. 15th, Wed., Apr. 16th .

    Happily, the students continue to read and the bonus is that many students who did not enjoy reading, now say they love to read!



    Shop at Jamesport Candle and mention OLM at the time of purchase. OLM will receive 15% of the proceeds. Thank you, Mrs. Zaweski

    OLM students are tested only in grades 4 and 6. The students are never pressured to learn, but they are nurtured and encouraged to do their best. The teachers drive the instruction, and the students receive attentive and differentiated care.
