Congratulations to all members! We are proud you are representing our school by being good role models and excellent communicators of the ideas, requests, and needs of all students.
Similarly, I wish to thank the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Education Commission for 2015-16 for their time, talent, service, and dedication to our students. Your caring decisions and thoughtful advisement move our parish school forward positively in academics, spirituality, and service to others. 2015-16 Commission members include: Chris Ryan, Chair; Jessica Smith, Vice Chair; Sean Uhl, Secretary, Kathy Willis, Jeanne Denis, Kristie Simmons, Brad Kruer, Michelle Braden, Brittany Morton, Fr. Eric Johnson and me. The Commission meets the second Tuesday of each month in shared responsibility for the educational ministry of the parish. Thank you for your generous spirit!
Dear Our Lady Students,
How’s it going on the Rise Up part of our school-wide theme? What are you doing to lift yourself up to a higher level this year? Are you being a better, more caring friend? Are you practicing more organization and better study habits? Have you found the best place to read and the most productive time to study? This all takes time and practice. You are on the right path. Be proud of the good habits you are working on and rise up and try again when you make a mistake. You have lots of support from grown-ups and classmates, but most of all, when you rely on God, it will all come together. Have a great week and know I am keeping you in my prayers, too.

Please see the enclosed flier in this week's newsletter detailing the very simple way you can effortlessly give to our parish and school.
By re-enrolling your Kroger card and designating Our Lady of Perpetual Help as your nonprofit of choice, we receive community rewards in the form of funds to help with instructional supplies such as levelled books, Math manipulatives, and learning games. The more people enrolled from Our Lady the better the return to our school. This does not cost a thing, but shows your care, support and service to the greater good in our community. We are grateful to Kroger for such a partnership.
Even if you have already joined the Kroger Community Rewards program, August 1-31 is the time to sign into your account and re-enroll since the program does not automatically renew and will drop supporters as of Sept. 1. Now is a great time to start--it just takes a few minutes to help in a big way! Follow the steps outlined on the flier by going to www.kroger.com/
Supporters that do not re-enroll in August will drop from the program on September 1st until they do re-enroll.
Thank you for being part of our Community Rewards fundraising program!
Let's keep the rewards coming!
