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
March surely came in like a lion and went out like a lamb. Next, we can expect those April showers! They will bring us the glorious new growth that comes with spring as our lawns green and flowers start to bloom. All are signs of the blessings that God provides for us. We are now in the middle of Lent with just a few weeks before we celebrate Easter and our Risen Lord. Our school children continue to learn about Jesus’ journey in ways they can best understand. Each teacher is able to teach our students using age appropriate instructional strategies that help them learn about Jesus and the Easter story. “Religion” may be a major subject listed on our report cards and given a specific time period during the day, but our teachers infuse their faith in all they do, and they successfully incorporate it in all subject areas.

Our 8th graders have been working for months practicing the Stations of the Cross which we will all witness on April 12th. I hope you have the chance to attend. The 8th graders also joined their PREP peers on Friday and received the Sacrament of Confirmation, which is the last of their Sacraments of Initiation. May they continue to be led by the Holy Spirit.

The entire school is supporting our second grade in their Feed 5000 campaign. Canned and other non-perishable goods will be collected over the next few weeks. This has become a tradition here at OLPH, and this year’s class will continue its success with your support.

OLPH students are also joining all the schools in the Trenton Diocese for the Bishop’s Day of Service on May 3. In preparation for this, the children will be creating cards to send prayers of comfort to children in local hospitals. Each class will also create a quilt which will be sent along to share with sick children. Gift cards are being collected to help these families. Please consider sending in a gift card with your child. It has been suggested that pharmacy cards, such as Rite Aid and CVS, be sent. Gift cards to grocery stores or other places where families can get necessities for their children are also welcome. We also have cell phone wallets available for purchase for $2.00 in the school office. If you’d like one please let us know. Many thanks to Mrs. Bianco, Mrs. Dougherty, and Mrs. Spicer for leading this service project.

We have some calendar changes for the end of the year since we did not use all of our emergency closing days.

Field Day is moved to Thursday, May 23 with 12:30 dismissal. School will be closed on Friday, May 24. (...and Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day)

Last Day of School for grades preschool - 7 is Friday, June 14th with 12:30 dismissal for grades 1 - 7. Our 8th-grade class will have graduated on Friday, June 7th. Their last day is that day. They are not to report to school after that date. Preschool and Kindergarten leave with their parents at the end of their closing programs. Parents may attend the awards assembly with their child if they choose. Preschool and kindergarten will not attend as a class. Their awards will be given during their closing programs.

The new PTA Newsletter is available. Click the Newsletter link above.

Parent Portal is open. The portal will remain open all summer so parents can access report cards, however, once rollover is complete, grade 8 graduates will no longer be on parent accounts because they are no longer officially students in the school. If parents of eighth grade students want to print extra report cards, they must do so before the portal closes for rollover.

Rollover is scheduled for June 28. NOBODY (school personnel or parents) will be able to access Genesis from 4:00 pm June 26 until 4:00 pm June 29.


The following events are being hosted by the PTA in April: Clothing Drive: April 1 - May 18 Dine & Donate: MOD Pizza Thursday, April 4 Rummage Sale: Saturday, April 6 Family Trivia Night: Saturday, April 13

Reading The Monitor allows families to stay current with what is going on around the diocese. Click above to read highlights of stories that are being covered.
