Today, we celebrated our 2nd consecutive Blue Ribbon Award at a ceremony in school.
Mayor Kevin Ryan of Verona acknowledged OLL's continued success with a Certificate of Achievement. Mayor Robert Parisi of West Orange celebrated OLL with a Mayoral Proclamation. Dr. Dames, Superintendent for Catholic Schools for the Archdiocese of Newark, was on-hand to help reveal our new Blue Ribbon Plaque. Verona Councilman Jack McEvoy, OLL alumnus, emphasized OLL's role in his life. OLL pastor Father Joseph D'Amico, former OLL principal Sister Mary Agnes Sullivan and Sister Patricia Butler, SC, Associate Superintendent for the Diocese rounded out our special guests. Students leaders kicked off the ceremony and the student body finished with a rousing rendition of the Our Lady of the Lake Song. Thank you to all parents and community members who attended!
