Peace Post Monday, 14 October 2019
Our Lady of Peace Catholic School is a caring, collaborative community educating students to be critical thinkers and thoughtful leaders. We nurture the whole child, preschool through eighth grade, with challenging, forward-thinking curriculum, preparing students to respond to Christ’s call to build peace at home, in school, in the community, and in the world.

What a week! Not only did we make our Marathon goal of $18,000 to support our staff in providing amazing enrichment opportunities for our students but we also kicked off the OLP Pumpkin Patch this weekend AND hosted our first Parents' Night Out event which helps the 8th graders fundraiser for their Chicago trip. When I reflect on all that OLP is doing as far as curriculum enrichment and facility enhancement to ensure a viable future for OLP students and families to come, I am overwhelmed with what this community can do! In fact, I do not think there is anything we cannot do. I believe that the same mentality is true regarding our students. There is nothing that they cannot achieve or accomplish when we continue to support their learning environment, social-emotional health, and spiritual journey.
So, when you sit down with your child's teacher at
conferences today or tomorrow
, (Did you forget conferences?? No worries, I'll put the links below) know that you all make a superhero team in ensuring the success of your curious learner. There is nothing that we cannot accomplish here at #OLPEAGLENATION!
I DID NOT FORGET CONFERENCES, JUST SIGNING UP FOR THEM NOW!
We did it!
We raised over $18,000 for Enrichment Opportunities for our students! This doubles what we were able to raise last year. Look for more details about how our staff and students engage in the different learning opportunities outside of the school building.
Additionally, since we made our goal, Mr. Berry will be rooftop camping as promised. Stay tuned for a date!
