STUDENT LIFE

At OLL we provide many varied opportunities for learning beyond the classroom. Your child may choose from a number of extracurricular activities that will enhance his or her educational experience.

 

Extracurricular Activities:

8th Grade Play - A long standing tradition at Our Lady of Lourdes.  The 8th grade students audition and perform in the annual play that is held towards the end of the school year.  The play gives the students the opportunity to experience the theater  before they enter into high school.

Music - OLL music with Ms. Madeline Landgrebe

Jr. High Houses - These houses are an important and favorite tradition at OLL. Sixth, Seventh and Eighth grade students are divided into groups that promote friendship and encourage excellence within the school community. Each house has a special namesake and an associated Franciscan virtue: St Thomas a Becket (justice), St Francis (peace), and Sr. Theresa (courage). Members have friendly competitions with one another while earning points for positive behavior.
