Taco Tuesday, Weeding, and Ice Cream

We have to keep shouting out the many big and the small ways our families bless us! We can't fully express the joy we feel at having volunteers back in the building and experiencing the service you give us. THANK YOU to the family that has helped us clean up the front garden beds, the families that have brought to life Taco Tuesday for the faculty, the family that donated a beverage fridge to the staff lounge, the mom who made copies for teachers, all the parents who read with students or help in the classrooms, or provide lunches or snacks, and lastly, thanks to those families serving on the HSA this year, including room reps, and for the many social events they will help make possible. We may have gotten through last year, however, your services, your presence, and your gifts have already made this school year easier, and so much more fun!

In Honor of Midge Gourde Day, September 15, 2021

Read all about this remarkable woman, her family legacy, and a very special gift to Saint Olaf Catholic School. Thank for your faith and stewardship to our community Midge! Richard and Catherine (Midge) Gourde sent all 11 children to Saint Olaf Catholic School starting on opening day in September 1960 into the early 1990’s. We are excited to relaunch for the 2022-23 school year, the Richard & Catherine Gourde Scholarship Application with the selected student notified during Catholic Schools Week in January.

New endowments help Catholic school, parish.

Click for a recent Intermountain Catholic article on our Gourde Family Endowment and for details on how you can give to this need based student scholarship. We are blessed to have the Gourde family in our community and know Midge would love to see many more contributions from families, near and far. We are all stewards of Catholic Education. As Sister Germaine often reminds our school community, a Catholic Education must be accessible to all. The value of Catholic Education must live and breathe in us all.

Casual for a Cause, Wed Sept 8th

Wednesday, September 8, is our first CASUAL FOR A CAUSE. We start the year with Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent De Paul. As part of the founding faculty and administration for Saint Olaf Catholic School, we intentionally start and end our 10 Causes with these faithful women who were dedicated and devoted to the families here at Saint Olaf Catholic School as well as to many other sister schools and other worthy needs in Utah. You can still see Sr. Germaine on campus, serving and teaching our children when she stops by. For a donation of $3 per child, students may wear non uniform, school appropriate clothing that day in support of this Cause.

We hope everyone is doing well and we wanted to remind you about the Viking Fall Fun Run fundraiser that is kicking off! Our goal is to raise $30,000 for field trips and extended learning activities for our students. We are so excited about this fundraiser because it is fantastically fun and beneficial for all of our studentsβ€”they’ll take part in a character program, participate in the Viking Fall Fun Run, and get a needed boost of school spirit, all while raising money for awesome field trips!
So today, for our FIRST CHALLENGE, we are asking you to simply REGISTER your family (no donations required) on http://MYBOOSTER.COM.
IF we have ALL students registered (remember, no donations required) by this FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, students will earn a free casual dress "spirit day" in the next few weeks! It's quick and easy, we promise.

Saint Olaf Charism of Service Thrives in Our Community

Our SHOUT OUT this week goes to our entire incredible staff for serving our students, families, and each other. This week, as several faculty were out, the remaining staff graciously filled in with teaching, recess duty, carline assistance, lunch help, and so much more. Faculty also managed lesson plans and communications for students both in and out of the classroom. In these difficult and stressful pandemic times, our staff pitched in, worked hard, and continued building faith together! Thank You!!!!

Parent/Principal Zoom

Mr. McFall will be hosting a ZOOM meeting, Wednesday, August 25th at 9:15 AM to discuss how we will continue to care for our community.
