Renewing the Promise... Strengthening our Future
On October 2nd in Nolan Hall, OLPH PTA held a special open session. Those in attendance spent time brainstorming, collaborating and planning an extensive fundraising operation for the year. There is still much work to be done and we will need a wide variety of skill sets and experience. Thank you to all family, friends, and alumni of our school who attended. And thank you for all you do.

From The Principal's Desk
It is hard to believe November is here already. Itís a special time when we celebrate saints, remember those who have gone before us, honor our veterans, and give thanks for our many blessings!
Many thanks to those who made our First Annual 5K Run/Walk a success. The PTA is already working on plans for next yearís event. All families will be encouraged to participate and to bring a friend.
Parent-Teacher Conferences were very well attended. The teachers greatly appreciate this time with you. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn about your childís individual progress in class, and make plans for continued success throughout the year.
Our school community recently came together on behalf of our own Mrs. Shanon Bianco and all who are battling leukemia. The school children showed their support by sporting their orange or donut bandanas.
Our Toddle in Tuesday program is up and running. Many thanks to Mrs. Maribeth Dougherty who heads this program. This special hour each Tuesday allows toddlers and their caregivers to come together to sing, play, and create each week.
Today, our fourth grade class presented their saint projects before mass. The combined efforts of their work and the parentsí help to provide costumes made for a special presentation.
The Scholastic Book Fair is next Monday through Wednesday. Join us Monday night, November 5, for the annual Ice Cream Social in Nolan Hall at 7 PM.
Watch for more details about mass on November 21, the day before we break for Thanksgiving. School will dismiss at 12:30 that afternoon.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
God bless,
Mrs. Cindy Smith
