We were blessed and fortunate to welcome, in person, Author Kaela Rivera this past Thursday afternoon. We first met Ms. Rivera via zoom during Read Across America Week in March of 2022. Ms. Cowan introduced Kaela’s first book to our community soon after it was released the previous year, in 2021. After her zoom with our students in March, she ended by saying she’d love to meet our students in person.

Midge Gourde Day - September 15, 2022

In memory of Midge Gourde, we are resharing an article originally written/published September of 2020 in honor of the first Midge Gourde Day.
Read all about this remarkable woman, her family legacy, and a very special gift to Saint Olaf Catholic School. Thank you to the Gourde Family, for your faith and stewardship to our community. 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.

Casual for a Cause - September 14th, 2022

Wednesday, September 14th, is our first CASUAL FOR A CAUSE. We start the year with The Ladies of Charity. For a donation of $3 per child, students may wear non uniform, school appropriate clothing that day in support of this Cause. As part of the founding faculty and administration for Saint Olaf Catholic School, we intentionally start 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. Read on, for more information on the Ladies of Charity of Northern Utah.
