Message from the Principal

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome everyone to Our Lady of Providence!!  I am looking forward to another wonderful year.  It is a privilege to serve with such a dedicated professional staff committed to providing the students with a quality education.
As we begin a new school year, I would like to encourage each parent/guardian to be active in your child's education. I certainly realize that many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. However, taking just a few minutes in the evening to read to your child, talk with your child about school, or simply see that your child is organized for the next school day can have great benefits. 
Enjoy the 2014-2015 school year and all the excitement it will bring! 

Sincerely,
    Sharon Swift
    Principal

Parents, we ask your continued help and cooperation in ensuring that your children are doing their homework and getting enough sleep.  These things are imperative to their success in school.  Ask your children about the “Principal’s Homework Challenge!”

If you want to be a chaperone on a class trip or come to school for various events, we need to have you fill out a volunteer application so we can do a background check.  This only reveals if you have had charges against you involving children.  THIS MUST BE DONE IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE.   Please fill out the form and return it to school ASAP.  If you have filled it out before, you do not have to do it again.
