School Mass-Lady of Lourdes

This morning, Friday, February 9, 2024, Fr. Piotr Tymko celebrated Mass with our students and staff. He talked to us about Our Lady of Lourdes, which "is a title of the Blessed Virgin Mary recalling her apparitions in 1858 in the grotto at Lourdes, France to Saint Bernadette Soubirous, a fourteen-year-old peasant girl. Our Lady instructed Bernadette to dig in the ground nearby, from which came a spring with healing properties, active to this day. After a thorough investigation, the apparitions were approved for devotion by the Catholic Church in 1862. A shrine was built there, which remains a popular place of pilgrimage."-ollsm.com 


Fr. Piotr told our students that next Sunday, February 11th is the World Day of the Sick and the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes. Many people go that day to Lourdes, France for prayer and healing.


We give special thanks to the students who did a wonderful job singing, leading us in prayer, and reading the scriptures.💙💛

Competition Cheer 2023-24


UPDATE 01/07/2024:

Dear Cheer Parents,


       Shamrock is rapidly approaching, and the girls are working very hard to be ready. We have experienced some challenges this year with our practice schedule and injuries. Starting tomorrow Monday, January 8, we are going to extend practice by 30 minutes, so we will be in the gym from 3:30-5:00.  We are hoping that doing this will keep us from having to have extra practices. We understand that this might not be convenient for everyone, but this is, unfortunately, necessary for the girls to be ready to compete. We are going to be flexible as we know this is coming to you with short notice, but PLEASE, if at all possible, we need your cheerleader to be at practice. At this point, it truly impacts the whole team when one person is missing. If this is simply not an option for you, please let us know.


Additionally, there is an opportunity for the cheerleaders to compete in the Scott Cheer Classic on Feb 24  at 1:00 at IHM (Immaculate Heart Of Mary Catholic School-4145 JOHNSON ST HIGH POINT, NC 27265)

Please let us know ASAP if your cheerleader is available on that date and able to come to the competition by clicking HERE and filling out a short Google form.


Thank you so much for your flexibility and your support!

Kelly Spradlin and Elizabeth Tichy

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities for the 2023-2024 school year


We have new Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities for the 2023-2024 school year. We would love to help promote your business, while you support our school! 


Money raised during the 2022-2023 school year was used for several major and unexpected expenses. We are in the process of replacing our 26-year-old Fire Alarm System at the Main Campus. We also replaced and repaired flooring in several areas of the building. A few rooms also received new paint!


Due to increased enrollment, we purchased 100 new Chromebooks for our students. None of these things would have been possible without the support of our community!


CLICK HERE to Review Sponsorship Level

If you or someone you know owns a business and would like to partner with our school, contact us today! 


I look forward to working with you! Contact me with me any questions!
