What's Happening at OLT?

Mother of the Americas Kermes

Mother of the Americas Parish welcomed the Little Village community to a family friendly event this past Sunday. Tepeyac girls were glad to be a part of it

Fun and Games For All!  Last year, Our Lady of Tepeyac, Assumption BVM and St. Roman's Parish united to form Mother of the Americas Parish. We are celebrating together at the church at Cermak & Whipple. The schools will retain their names.

The Kermes, Spanish for a Catholic bazaar or fundraiser, was organized and run by the parish. There was great food, music, games and more!  A few students ran a booth to provide free face painting for the children. The kids were beaming with joy! We also provided fans to the people who attended - they came in handy, particularly because of the hot day. We even got Fr. Tom in the dunk tank! The Kermes was a great way at bring our community together.  The newly united parish has also been holding street masses to promote unity and peace. Read more here.

2021 New Course Offerings

The academic year is off to a great start! OLT has added Psychology and Holocaust electives for Juniors and Seniors as well as Intro to Computers for the Freshwomen to the curriculum this year.

Principal and teacher for the Holocaust course, Kathy Ingram says, "Psychology and Holocaust have been taught in years past and we are so excited to get them back into the rotation. The students are looking forward to having the opportunity to take these courses as well!"   Members of the OLT faculty also advised adding an Intro to Computers course to the Freshwomen Curriculum. "We've learned that our new students need time to get to know high school applications like Google Classroom as well as the Portal, where they can access grades and assignments. Intro to Computers will ensure that our Freshwomen get off on the right foot. These skills are necessary for every class they will take during their high school career." says Ms. Ingram. The course will also focus on word processing and other applications used across the curriculum.  We look forward to watching our girls engage in new ways this year!

First Year Pre-Med, Emma Looks Back and to the Journey Ahead

Emma Onate, a legacy grad class of 2020, is enjoying her first year at St. Olaf College majoring in Biology with a neuro-science concentration.

All of this with the goal of attending medical school, while bonding with her fellow Posse Scholars and finding speaking up in her classes is easier due to attending an all girls, small, college prep high school.

Emma’s best memories of Tepeyac focus on the small classes, collaborative classmates, attentive teachers and faith based education. She said, “ Before I came to Tepeyac, being in larger classes made me feel uncomfortable speaking up and asking questions. Boys in the class always think they have the answers, but girls like to work together and help each other, never allowing competition to get in the way. I was so shy before coming to OLT, but my teachers reached out to me, actually caring and making sure I understood the material.” Emma shared that in an all girls environment, your confidence grows because you are encouraged and cheered on by the larger school community.
