We at OLTCA remember what happened to our school just five years ago during Superstorm Sandy. As challenging as it was for us when we relocated to Our Lady of Miracles, that was nothing compared to what so many schools in Texas are facing after Hurricane Harvey. So we chose to Pay It Forward. The Student Council decided that we wanted to help one school and we could think of none better to assist than St. Marys in Houston; because they, like us, are a school dedicated to our Blessed Mother. The Student Council held a Dress Down Day and were able to raise over $400 to send to St. Marys. Additionally, we made them beautiful pictures of Mary and Jesus. These pictures will surely lift the spirit of the students when they are hung in the hallways of St. Marys. Finally, and most importantly, prayers and love are being sent to the students and faculty of St. Marys and all the schools impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
We are overjoyed to share that our graduates are attending amazing High Schools such as:
Christ the King
We are so proud of you all!!
We are so thankful to have received an amazing grant to have a state of the art STEM Lab! We have been provided with all supplies for our Pre-K through 8th grade to engage in hands on science experiments.
On the last day before the Easter holiday, students and faculty participated in our annual Easter Retreat Day. We began with a very special prayer service reenacting Jesus washing the feet of His disciples. Eleven students and one teacher represented the twelve disciples. It was a humbling and prayerful experience that brought many emotions to the surface for all involved. We were thankful to have the parents who joined us as well as Father Mike who gave us a wonderful homily. We then had a morning filled with Easter egg hunts, Stations of the Cross, holiday videos, song, and even dance with our little ones!
As we begin the homestretch of the school year, we are ready for the good weather and the activities that brings, as well as focusing on our school work with the goal of ending the school year on a high note. We are celebrating our amazing office staff on Administrative Professional Day as well as our dedicated and loving school nurse on Nurse’s Day. Some of our students will be receiving the sacrament of Confirmation or Communion over the next few weeks and we pray that their hearts, minds, and souls are ready for these very special sacraments. May God bless them – now and always!
