Do you have jewelry, watches, or costume jewelry that you are no longer wearing? Please consider donating any jewelry to our Christmas in July Jewelry Boutique. Our volunteers will be outside of 10:00 am Mass on Sundays, or you can drop it off at the school office anytime. Thank you for your support.


BIG YARD SALE Coming Saturday, May 31st!!

MOP will be having a big rummage sale of your gently used furniture, tools, toys and such. A one stop shop opportunity! Proceeds from this rummage sale will benefit our school technology program here at OMMS!!

We are also in need of volunteers to help with set up on Friday and Saturday during the sale. Please come out to lend your hand or do some shopping!

Donations for the yard sale will also be accepted and appreciated on Friday, May 30th, on the front lawn of the school (adjacent to the horseshoe driveway). Thank you in advance for your support.

Do you know what it cost in time and money if your identity is stolen? Bring those old papers to have them shredded at our Repurpose, Recycle Saturday. We also will have an e-waste vendor to take your electronic recyclables especially computer monitors and old TVs. Anything with a screen is of greater value.


Eoilchange.com…another great way to support our school!


Eoilchange.com is offering gift cards for 3 oil changes worth $120 for only $40. The best part is OMMS gets to keep $20 (that's half!) of each sale. If we sell 200 gift cards we would earn $4000. If we sell 500 gift cards we would earn $10,000! The money to be earned is endless because everybody NEEDS oil changes. Please see Ms. Cyndi in the office to buy yours; grab a few more to sell at work to your coworkers.



The eighth grade students will once again be selling ice cream sandwiches during lunch on Thursday, May 22nd, for $1.00 each.
