ACCREDITATION UPDATE

The education of children and young people is such an important task in forming them as free and responsible human beings. It affirms their dignity as an inalienable gift that flows from our original creation as children made in the image and likeness of God. And because education truly forms human beings, it is especially the duty and responsibility of the Church, who is called to serve mankind from the heart of God and in such a way that no other institution can.
- Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis)
 
As we close our celebration of Catholic Schools Week, we are ever grateful for the privilege of serving our parish community through the ministry of Catholic Education. A rigorous academic curriculum infused with the solid, life-affirming values of our Catholic culture and spirituality is at the heart of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School. Our self-study this year is helping us to strengthen our school and renew our commitment to serving our students and families "from the heart of God." 

Thank you to all who are contributing to this process toward our re-accreditation!


FIFTH GRADE NEWS

From Mrs. Ward:

A few weeks ago students wrote to authors of their choice. They shared what they liked about the book and characters, asked questions and made suggestions. Today we received our first responses! 

Three students, Brock, Matthew, and Anthony G received letters from Alan Gratz, author of Allies, Refugee, and several other popular books. He included autographed bookmarks! So cool! The students are so excited.


SCHOOL BUS REMINDER


Everyone who rides the school bus must fill out a bus registration and have an emergency card on file with the bus driver.  Every rider must be charged a registration fee through FACTS.   We will do not sell bus coupons for daily use.   Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
