Watching the Pope
Today the 6th, 7th and 8th graders watched as Pope Francis addressed the United States Congress. It was very exciting and interesting to hear his values and his beliefs during his speech.
8th Grade Pope
The 8th grade is celebrating the Pope's arrive to the United States by devoting a religion class to learn more about him. They will be studying his mission, his life and reading some of his twitter quotes!

A Gathering of Future Entrepreneurs at OLL
Many of the 7th and 8th graders are participating in a brand new program this year call TREP$ which is short for Entrepreneurs. The students develop their own businesses while being mentored by parents that are actual business owners themselves. The program culminates with a flea market style "TREP$ Marketplace" where all are invited to come and view the many businesses the students are formally launching.
8th Graders Write Letters of Encouragement!
The 8th graders practice their letter writing skills by writing both friendly and business letters. Students wrote letters and created hand-made cards for Addie Fausett, a six-year old from Utah with a terminal illness. The family has requested Christmas cards for her to put a smile on her face during this difficult time.
3rd Grade Honors the Saints!
The 3rd grade students presented a parade of saints in honor of All Saints Day in November. Each student chose their favorite saint or patron saint, dressed up as them, and gave a report about their life and how each saint was meaningful in the life of each child.
Fifth Grade Future Scientists
Miss Lazzaro's fifth grade science class displays their completed projects - 3-Dimensional animal and plant cells.
All Smiles Over a Good Book!
The OLL Book Club kicked off the new school year with their first selection in September. The students enjoyed lively discussions, tasty snacks, and, of course, great books!
