The Cardinal O'Hara App!
In an effort to increase communication, we are excited to share the launching of our new app. This app includes any important announcements and updates as well as the school calendar. The calendar includes all school events and academic schedules. The athletic calendar must still be accessed from the athletic website. It will also send you alerts if you enable notifications. The app is still in the early stages, but it is an extremely useful tool for students and parents.

Here are the steps to download the app:

  1. Go to the app store or play store depending on your device.
  2. Search for "School News by Edlio."
  3. Download the app.
  4. Once downloaded, open the app and it will prompt you to search for you school. Type in "Cardinal O'Hara High School." (It should pop up after a few letters)
  5. Once you are in the app, if you click on "alerts" you will be prompted if you would like to enable notifications.

Volleyball Fundraiser Honoring Mrs. Vice
The Cardinal O’Hara Lady Lions Volleyball team will be sponsoring a fundraiser to raise money for Breast Cancer research and overall awareness in honor of our principal, Mrs. Eileen Vice. We will be celebrating Mrs. Vice during our match with Sun Valley on Monday October 7. The Lady Lions JV match begins at 530pm with the Varsity to follow. We will be doing a 50/50 raffle, selling t-shirts and having donation jars spread around the gym with 100% of the proceeds going to Breast Cancer research in Mrs. Vice’s name. Please feel free to come by the gym and see some quality volleyball, purchase a heart in support of or in memory of a loved one from any member of the volleyball program or contact Bill Collins at  bcollins@cohs.com  all for a more than worthwhile cause.
