Dear Parents,

First, I wish to thank all our students and families for a great conclusion to our first term! It has been a very successful term in my absence and I wish to especially thank our acting Principal, Mrs. Lisa Bond, as well as the rest of the OLS staff and teachers for their extra hard work in my absence. As of December 1st, I have officially returned to my duties this month as Principal. I also wish to sincerely thank all our parents and families for your prayers during my time away. All your prayers and well wishes have helped me tremendously during my recovery. Lastly, I wish you all a special Advent and Christmas Season filled with much love, and many blessings of health and happiness with your families. God Bless you all! Sincerely, Mr. Balletta
