Pizza and Popcorn

posted Jan 8, 2020, 4:44 AM by Debbie Lloyd

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We will be sending out the order forms for pizza and popcorn electronically shortly. We will be using School Cashonline for all purchases. If you have not already registered, please do so this week (https://ocsb.schoolcashonline.com/). It is fairly easy to set up and is best done on a laptop. All you need your child's name and birthdate. Once you have set up your account, you will receive emails any time a new item is posted. Should you require assistance, School Council will be hosting an evening at school to assist you in registering. Details about the date will follow shortly. 


Birthday Party for Baby Jesus

posted Dec 11, 2019, 4:06 AM by Debbie Lloyd

Dear OLMC Families,

Every year, we celebrate the birth of Jesus by gathering in the gym to share a traditional Christmas dinner with all students in our school. On Monday, December 16th, your child will be provided with turkey, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, gravy, cranberries, stuffing, bun/butter, juice and a cupcake all prepared by staff over the weekend. There are many school board volunteers from our Planning and Facilities Department and volunteers from our own families who support us by prepping, serving and cleaning to make this celebration possible for our students. We are blessed and honoured to be able to share this time with our students. This serves as a reminder that your child will not require a lunch on Monday. Please send snacks as per usual. #BeOLMC

Sincerely,
​​​​​​​OLMC Staff

Maker Mobile Workshops

posted Nov 9, 2019, 11:30 AM by Debbie Lloyd

Dear OLMC Parents and Guardians,

This week, all students K-6 will participate in a Maker Mobile workshop led by University of Ottawa. Funding is being covered by donations and there is no cost to parents. 

The uOttawa Maker Mobile is a Makerspace on wheels. Carrying the latest technologies, the Maker Mobile delivers fun hands-on learning activities to schools, complementing the school curriculum. The goal is to encourage creativity, problem-solving skills and interest in technology among everyone in our community.

Here is a list and description of the workshops:

Kindergarten: Bee-bot
Bee-Bot is an award-winning programmable robot, perfect for teaching orientation, sequencing, estimation and programming to young children. Students will have the opportunity to complete the challenge of programming their Bee-Bot to make its way through a maze.

Gr. 1-2: Codemaker programming and scratch
Students will learn to program their own interactive stories and games. In the process, they will learn to solve problems, design projects and express themselves creatively on the iPad.

Gr. 2/3-3/4: Little Bits
In this hands-on workshop, students will investigate circuits and computer logic using electronic building blocks called Little Bits, while learning some basic programming concepts.

Gr. 4/5-6: Create your own animal habitats in AR
Students will learn about different animal habitats and their characteristics. Then, they will create their own animal habitat in 3D using the online software CoSpaces. They will learn how to animate their animals and use simple coding concepts to make them move. Afterwards, using a Merge cube, they will see their habitat come to life with augmented reality!
