With a brand new year and a fresh semester beginning, we have much to accomplish with half of the school year before us. However, you will also notice this begins the season of marketing for Catholic schools in our area for the following school year of 2017-18. Traditionally, most of our Deanery schools have Open House during Catholic Schools Week at the end of the month to tell our story to prospective families. Our Lady will be doing the same on Jan. 29 from noon-three. Open House signs are displayed as reminders around the community.
Thank you for helping us spread the word and if you are not sure all that Our Lady has to offer, please send friends and family my way. I am happy to discuss the faith life of our students, the differentiated curriculum, use of technology and service learning, social justice opportunities as well as the high marks Our Lady students consistently earn on assessments and in scholarships. Our reputation is strong, yet we constantly work to learn from our parents and students practicing continuous and ongoing improvement.
Our Lady grads are leaders and collaborators. They have developed the habit of giving back and making a difference in their school, parish and community. We invite parishioners, your families and friends to learn all a Catholic education offers and to know of the excellence and care Our Lady of Perpetual Help School gives throughout your child’s educational career. Thank you for the example you give our youth and for your prayers for this dynamic ministry.
Dear Our Lady Students,
We’re back in the swing of school with a focus on being the example of Jesus for one another. What have you done this week to show someone else Christ’s love, patience, forgiveness or goodness? Being an example isn’t easy; it is a big responsibility. I am proud of your efforts to be the difference and make Jesus known to others by your actions and words.
