Principal’s Message – 1/26/16

Dear Our Lady of Guadalupe School,

Last week we had a wonderful turn-out for TK/Kinder Info night and today our junior high students traveled to St. Joseph’s Catholic School for their Mock Academic Decathlon. As a principal, I was proud of our decathletes for representing their school so well. They were well-prepared, respectful, and enjoyed the opportunity to train with Decathletes from other schools. We are looking forward to hosting February’s Mock Decathlon here at OLG with the actual Academic Decathlon taking place Sunday, March 13th at the Walter Pyramid Center in Long Beach.

Our second graders had a field trip to the Natural History Museum, and our fifth graders will take a walking field trip to the Hermosa Beach Library this week. Our basketball teams (all 4 of them!) are now in full swing and next week we celebrate Catholic Schools Week. Whew!
