Schoolwide Learning Expectations
Our Lady of Perpetual Help School students should be:
A. Committed, Contributing Catholics who:
All students from Transitional Kindergarten through Eighth attend mass every Friday. Students are fully engaged in these masses as they are responsible for the readings, responsorial psalms, intentions, singing, offertory procession, and altar serving. Each class, together with their families, celebrates one family mass per year with the parish religious education program students.
All classes are responsible for the preparation and presentation of a Word Service once a year. With the guidance of our teachers and school Campus Minister, the students plan and present a themed service for the entire school community. Word Service themes include St. Francis of Assisi, Living Rosary, Thanksgiving, Epiphany, Stations of the Cross, Last Supper. and May Crowning.
As Catholics, we are called by our faith to help those in need. In an effort to promote stewardship and empathy for others, all OLPH students are involved in community service. Each class participates in a service project. Although these projects may vary from year to year, they are tied to curriculum or to a special interest of the class.
Students are offered a wide range of athletics and extracurricular activities. We participate in sports through the CYO program, including volleyball, basketball, football, track, cross-country, soccer, and cheer.
Students are welcome to join a number of clubs, including Student Council, Christian Service Club, Science Club, Drama Club, Art Club, Choir, and School of Rock, Academic Decathlon, and Drum Corps.
Before-school and after-school extended care is offered at OLPH School. Snacks, outdoor recreation, an adult-supervised homework room, as well as varied arts and crafts, are offered during the after school hours. There is an additional fee for the Day Care program.
