TAGS ARE ON THE TREE!
 

Please join us in our Celtics in Mission outreach to the poor as we assist 14 families this Christmas.  There are over 400 tags on the tree!
 
Choose one or more tags and record your name and tag numbers on the log in the front office.  

Shop for the items on the tags,  no extra items please; this allows all family members to receive comparable gifts. B ring your wrapped gift to the school office  with the tag taped to the outside .

If you choose a meal tag, send a $25 check payable to OLPH, along with the gift tag, to the school office.
 
Please turn in all gifts and/or checks to the front office by December 10th.
 
Join us in praying for the families we are adopting.  

Thank you for being Celtics in Mission!

SCHOOL ACCREDITATION UPDATE
 
"And the survey says . . ." The parent survey is now in process as part of our self-study, and all school parents should have had the opportunity to complete the survey online. Thank you to all who have completed it already! If you are a school parent, we strongly encourage you to add your voice and perspective to our data by completing this survey if you have not already done so. Please click on the link below.  Additional surveys were given to students and staff. 

The surveys we are using have come directly from Cognia and the WCEA manual Improving Student Learning: A Self Study Process for Catholic Elementary Schools. The data from these surveys will help us as we assess our school according to the WCEA accreditation standards and will help us to shape the direction of our school program through ongoing school improvement. Your input is invaluable to this process.

Ongoing updates on our survey results and our self-study process will be posted in upcoming newsletters.
