Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School
 + Mary Hill Primary School = Hearts of Hope
 
Please join us for our Lenten Outreach Project: Hearts of Hope
 
During Lent we offer support through Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving.  Each homeroom receives a photo of one of the students at the school to remind them to pray for all of the students at MHPS every day. All the money we collect will go to support the school and the children. One child can be fed at MHPS school for an entire year for only $7.00!

Students may wear the purple Hearts of Hope T-shirts on Fridays.  New T-shirt order forms will be coming soon.

ACCREDITATION UPDATE
 
All of our self-study findings are being gathered and recorded in an extensive document, Improving Student Learning, that will be a focal point for the visiting accreditation team in December, and our guide for the ongoing school improvement process following that visit. This document ensures that we are comprehensive in our assessment of the school. 

We are currently completing Chapter Two - Context of the School. As one aspect of this chapter, we have studied the current trends in our school profile, including the local demographic data for Scottsdale. We want to be fully aware of the effect that these trends could potentially have on our school. We also assess how the goals and recommendations from our last accreditation visit have helped us to improve the achievement of our students. We are leaving no aspect of the school unexamined as we continuously strive to improve our school, meet the needs of our students, and ensure the high achievement of all.


SHARE THE GOOD NEWS AND BE REWARDED!

This spring, we're encouraging you to tell others about our wonderful  school. Recruitment is a large part of our ability to continue to provide  top notch education and programming to your children. But we can't do it  alone. We need your help! When you complete one positive review on each of  the below sites, you will receive a $25 DENNIS Uniform gift certificate.

When complete, please email Mrs. Lauro to let her  know. This gesture is one small way that we can say thank you for trusting  us and allowing us to educate your children.
