CONGRATULATIONS! OLM has earned Middle States Accreditation. Thank you
to faculty, staff and students for all the hard work and support.
Happy December! OLM will have a 3:00 pm dismissal on Friday, Dec.20th and will close from Dec.23rd through Jan. 1st. OLM will reopen on Thursday, Jan. 2nd.
Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy Regional School!
Please call 631-734-5166 for information on registration, and on the grandparent and godparent programs.
UPDATE: Assessment Cards will be distributed the week of December 2nd. You will receive an appointment sheet to meet with the teacher to receive the card.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A "GODPARENT" ? If you wish to sponsor a family who may need a little more financial support in order to attend OLM, please call the school at 734-5166 with your contact information to see how you may do so. Some families simply need a little more assistance, and what greater gift can you give than the gift of a Catholic education?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN OLM'S "GRANDPARENT PROGRAM"? Anyone wishing to donate their time to OLM for one day, two days, or whatever you can generously give, please call the school at 734-5166.
A Message From the Principal--
Frosty Fall reminds us that sweaters and gloves and hats are the new norm which goes along with this season. Please make sure the children eat a warm, healthy breakfast (oatmeal, toast, eggs, etc.) and get a good night's sleep each school evening.
Assessment Cards will be distributed to you at the beginning of December. The end of this month marks the passing of one-third of the school year.
Many classes went apple and pumpkin picking,as well as taking hay rides through the farms. They went on the fire trucks which were here complete with firemen from the Cutchogue Fire Dept. What a great day that was! They also had a presentation on how bullying is so hurtful to each other and they were given ways to help each other and themselves if they find themselves in a hurtful situation.
A November newsletter was sent home with dates for you to keep on your calendar and please continue to check the OLM online calendar for updated information. Enjoy the blessings of the Thanksgiving season!
