Disney Character Day at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy

Students Disney

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you know, this week is Spirit Week.  Every day the children have come to school in different attire that is usually worn here at school.  Instead of uniforms, if they wished, the children  dressed as Super Heroes, Twins, Sports Characters, Disney Characters, etc.  What a wonderful way, in the midst of the Pandemic, to come to school, learn and still have safe fun.  W hat a joy in the midst of what is happening in the world to be able to still be a child.

What a great joy it is for the children and all of us here to be part of this great school, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy!  Here we can dress as Super Heroes and also speak about how the real Super Heroes of our lives are with us everyday – God, our parents, guardians, teachers, friends, service workers,  etc.

As I walked among your beautiful children and took pictures, prayed for them and you, I needed to share with you my special moments that I have with your dear children.

God bless you and continue to watch over you,

Mrs. Frances DeLuca

Principal

 

Re-registration and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy OPEN HOUSE via Zoom

  OLPHCA brochure with zoom times

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Happy New Year!  I pray that this year will be the end of this pandemic and that it will be a blessed New Year.

Already, re-registration papers have been sent to you, and I am grateful to all of you who have already returned your child/children’s registration for next year.  We want to make sure that we have seats for all of our current students before we admit students coming from other schools to join our academy family.

Thank you for your kind words and letters of thanks for our effort since September 9 in keeping our academy open and our students safe .  It is my honor to serve you and your dear children, and I continue all my efforts on making sure they are well and receiving the best education possible.

Above if you click on the OLPHCA brochure, you can view our zoom times for open houses which this year must still be virtual.  Pass this brochure on to all your family and friends that may wish to attend our outstanding academy.

Please remember that if you refer someone to our academy and they remain for one year, your child’s tuition will be reduced by $750  for the next year.  

May our Lord continue to bless you and your loved ones,

Mrs. DeLuca

Principal

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On behalf of Fr. Tom, Jonathan and the Board, myself, and our faculty and staff, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, blessed New Year full of the joy and love of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

May the world be blessed with the healing and peace of God, and may every home receive the individual blessings they personally need!

I, personally, thank you for your kind words throughout the past year.  It is my blessing and pleasure to serve such an amazing community of parents and children.  Thank you for truly being partner with me in the education and well being of our dear children.  God bless you!

If tonight we get the predicted snow, all students will go onto remote learning tomorrow.  If the weather is so cold that everything will freeze Friday, I will let the teachers through Google Classroom/DoJo  inform you/your child whether Friday remains remote.

The students have done a wonderful job at the Christmas Nativity and eighth, sixth, fourth, and kindergarten grades have videotaped their Christmas presentation.  I have informed all teachers to download this video to each of their classes through your child’s google account.  Therefore, by tomorrow you will be able to see, what has been a yearly tradition, our Christmas show.

I pray for your dear children and you daily.  I continue to ask our Lord for your safety, good health, peace, joy, and prosperity.

May Jesus watch over you and your dear loved ones,

Mrs. Frances DeLuca

Principal

 

We are OPEN tomorrow

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Although the New York City Public Schools are closed, our Superintendent’s Diocesan Office has informed all Catholic Elementary Academies that we will be open till further notice.

We were informed that we would close only if the governor declares the complete city an orange zone or if he closes the schools.   We will be OPEN and in the next two days, we will be sending home books in case they will close us for Thanksgiving and thereafter.

We will be sending books and devices everyday till next Tuesday before Thanksgiving, allowing the children to keep certain books at home and bringing their devices back and forth.

I wish to inform you that  our nurse will be here from the city, but we have not yet been informed as to whether there will be yellow bus service or lunch. Therefore, please send, as always, a snack with your child/children and know that they may be sent home without lunch tomorrow if the city does not deliver lunches to us for the children.

Also,  we were not told whether yellow buses will be available for our children; therefore. you should make plans in the event that the yellow bus does not show up to pick up your child to come to school.

Please keep checking your teacher’s homework page, dojo, and this website in order to keep updated on all information.

May our Lord watch over you and your dear children,

Mrs. DeLuca

Ozone Park Block Association Food Pantry

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It has come to my attention that the Ozone Park Block Association has a food pantry here at the DESHI CENTER on 83-10 Rockaway Blvd and 83rd Street.  If you or any one you know is in need of food, please pass this information on to them.

Every Saturday morning, beginning at 6 a. m. at the DESHI CENTER, 83-10 Rockaway Blvd, food is being given out to assist all people during this difficult time of the Pandemic.  Please feel free to go and get help for you, or some one you know, and your dear children.

God bless and watch over you,

Mrs. Frances DeLuca
