FROM STAFF REPORTS

INDIAN SPRINGS – Our Lady of the Valley Catholic School is calling all fall 2018 cowboys and cowgirls to saddle up for an evening of fun at the annual Wild West Kindergarten Round-Up on April 12 from 5:30-7 p.m.

Potential OLV students as well as those already enrolled for the upcoming school year are invited to the Round-Up, which will include school tours, children’s activities, and pizza and other snacks.

Children will receive a pink or blue cowboy hat and bandana; will visit OLV’s Animal Barn, where they will see the school’s amazing in-house farm; and will visit the Spanish Wranglers classroom. In the school’s library, they will also meet the Belle of the West, Mary Poppins, and her friends from the upcoming OLV drama production of Mary Poppins, Jr.

The upcoming kindergartners will then head over to the cafeteria to enjoy their favorite pizza, while also being treated to a fashion show put on by current students that includes the most fashionable trends in OLV duds.
