New School Logo Unveiled

Today, Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School unveiled our new school logo, a visual representation of our One OLL initiative. This new logo brings together our two entities (parish and school) into one logo, varying only slightly from the parish, with the school retaining our “Green and Gold” heritage found in the circular frame.

The logo seeks to bring a clean, modern look that honors our namesake of incorporating Our Lady of the Lake, named by the Tacoma Dominican Sisters, and child - a reference alluding to Jesus and our school children - into our school logo design. Thank you to Sproutie Design for their talents and commitment to making this happen for our school community!
