The SAC is committed to working toward
ensuring that Our Lady of Lourdes School continues to be a vital and
viable source of education for our children. While things are looking
great as we start the new school year, there is still much hard work
ahead. While the SAC has once again decided not to impose
a work band for this school year, all parents are expected to
contributes at least 35 hours of volunteer service at our various
fundraisers. There is no doubt that if we all work together and
with God's continued help, we will continue to be successful.
