Our Lady of Victory (OLV) School gathered for the monthly Thankful Thursday celebration recently. This celebratory event brings everyone together to give prayers of thanks for the students’ academic accomplishments, many birthdays and impressive creative talent.
The OLV Student Council gathered special intentions throughout the month, and a special prayer was said for those intentions submitted in words and in spirit. The students who participated in the St. Baldrick’s Day fundraiser were introduced by the school’s principal, Mrs. Augello.
The “artists in residence” for the month were acknowledged. The Musician of the Month, Gaelle Josama, performed a piece on the piano for the crowd. The assembly ended with OLV school’s first graders performing.

Green Meadows Petting Farm offers children and adults a hands-on touching experience with the farm’s animals.
The farm provides a hands-on program that features reptiles, frogs, bugs, fluffy chickens, baby farm animals, bunnies and hedge hogs. The animals can be safely touched and are displayed in colorful “petting boxes.”
