A very special THANK YOU to the following contributors that made this playground possible:

NEW to OLG!!!
Student Council 2022-2023

Its an OLG Historical Moment! 🇺🇸
Middle School students elected last spring by their peers had their first organization meetings with Ms. Biggs, their sponsor, for the new OLG Student Council.  Ms. Biggs has over 20 years experience of being a Student Council sponsor with the Texas Association of Student Councils (TASC). 
"A student council is a group of student leaders who work with an adult advisor to collaborate with others to impact their school community, which impacts their city or town, which impacts our state, which impacts our country, which changes the world." Definition created by 2008-09 TASC State Officers and District Presidents 
Congratulations to the following students spearheading this new organization for our school!
Katie C. - Secretary; Stella N. - Treasurer; Olivia H. - Historian
The election for President, by the middle school students, will be held at the beginning of the school year.   Candidates Arturo A, Haleigh G, and Cayson S. will each give a speech to provide their vision and strengths to support this leadership position.  Going forward, the OLG Student Council will also have a "work-on program" where middle school students can participate in projects to earn their way onto council in addition to being elected by their peers.  
Promoting Citizenship, Scholarship, Leadership, Relationships, & Values.

Mariner Trivia - can you name these 4 hansom OLG Mariner Alumni from 2014?
Let us join together in asking our patroness, the Virgin Mary, Mother of God, to watch over our students as they begin a new school year.

The Memorare Prayer 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
