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

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
