Congratulations to our Regal Celtics!

Our school faculty has been working diligently these past few months to study the various aspects of our school and to write the chapters of our self-study document,  Improving Student Learning: A Self Study Process for Catholic Elementary Schools . First drafts have been submitted and are currently under review by the Accreditation Leadership Committee. Following a first round of revisions, these drafts will be submitted to the Western Catholic Educational Association Commissioner. Please continue to hold the school community in your prayers as we undergo this important process for our school improvement and accreditation.

The greater the number of attendees, the greater the percentage we receive!!

Golf Squad  - starts  February 21st

"Golf Squad at Our Lady of Perpetual Help School is for both new and 
continuing students and provides weekly opportunities for your child to learn the technical swing mechanics (i.e. putting, chipping, full swing, etc.) as well as the social skills required to enjoy golf, the clubs, and golf course (i.e. vocabulary, etiquette, rules, history, etc.) all under the instruction of an LPGA or PGA Professional.
