Virtue for the Month of April: "Generosity" is the virtue of giving and sharing what we have and who we are to benefit.  When we are generous we place the best of our qualities, talents, and possessions at their service.

Please use extra caution and drive slowly in the parking lots, especially at the archway.  Let's keep our kids safe!  Thank you, Fr. Jim.

The yearbook committee is now taking orders for Public Display of Affection (PDA) ads for the yearbook.  Commemorate your special student(s) with an ad in the yearbook.  What better way to remember kindergarten year, First Communion, and other events.  Ads range in price from $25 for ¼ of a page to $100 for a full page ad.  Call the school office 622-1481, or contact Carlene Evans; bigorange@catholicweb.com for more information. Yearbook sales will be starting soon.  Get your PDA as soon as possible.

Our Spring Art Show will be held May 2nd in the PLC.  All students (Pre-K - 8th) are encouraged and invited to submit work for the show.  Two-dimensional artwork must be framed.  Three-dimensional artwork such as clay vessels, sculptures, paper mache', kites, etc. may also be entered.  Be sure all entries have student's name and grade on them.  We would like to encourage our 8th grade class to submit their favorite artworks from previous years at OLPH.  Please turn in your artwork no later than Friday, April 25th.  Bring the entries to Ms. Crumley in Madonna Hall.  I will be hanging the show on Thursday, May 1 in the PLC.  I will need volunteers to help.  Please send me an email if you can help hang artwork for this event.

Spring Pictures will be taken on Tuesday, April 22nd.  These are out of uniform pictures and will include tennis and track pictures.  The 8th grade have already had their out of uniform pictures but, they can still be out of uniform on Tuesday.  They will have a group picture with cap and gown on Class Night.
