OLBSCA rocks! This past weekend, our auditorium was rockin’ and rollin’ with the sounds of a production of Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. All the performers did a wonderful job and made their families proud! Watch some highlights below:
We welcomed some of our favorite people to OLBSCA during our annual Grandparents’ Day. Many grandparents traveled near and far to be with us – one from as far as Atlanta, GA! Over 200 special people enjoyed visits to the classroom and refreshments afterward. Each grandparents was given a Grandparents’ prayer as a token of our great appreciation of them. Make your calendars for next year!
The OLBSCA Community dressed up as their favorite super heros to support the real heros at The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. They raised $1003! The mission of the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island is to keep families with sick children close to each other and the care and resources they need. The House provides the parents and siblings of these children with a temporary haven in a secure and comfortable environment among other families sharing a similar burden. The House is located on the campus of the Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York (formerly Schneider Children’s Hospital). Thank you to all of OLBSCA for your continued generous support!
On January 22, 12 students from sixth, seventh, and eighth grade participated in the Upper Grade Math Bee. Logan Thompson, a 7th grade student, will move on to represent our school in the Diocesan Math Bee. Julia Augello, an 8th grade student, came in second place. Congratulations to all those who participated. Wonderful job!
The OLBSCA Christmas Concert, held on Thursday, December 13, featured students from Kindergarten through 8th grade sharing their musical talents with family, faculty, and friends. It was a beautiful and joyful evening, and the performers all did a wonderful job!
Our 8th grade recently participated in an OLBSCA version of Shark Tank! The students used economics, mathematics, technology, graphic design, and engineering as they created their own businesses and prototypes. The young inventors and entrepreneurs put their critical thinking and public speaking skills to the test, presenting their inventions in front of the “board member sharks” in hopes of making a deal!
The students at OLBSCA collected canned good and nonperisables to donate to those less fortunate during this holiday season. We always feel so blessed when we help others; to know that we make a difference in someone’s life, especially during the holidays. The best way to spread holiday cheer is to help in any way we can and our families are a true example of that.
