School Bells Ring - Smiles - but No Phones

School bells rang for Our Lady of the Wayside students on Wednesday, August 23. OLW Pastor Father Ed Fialkowski greeted many of the Elementary School students while Middle School students were greeted by the "cell phone" police. Students are required to leave their phones on arrival (turned off!) and they can pick them up at the end of the day. At right, Principal David Wood and Teacher. All are prepared for a new and successful year.

Associate Pastor Father Louis Golamari blesses the sixth grade bibles.
