WE NEED YOUR HELP SECURING ITEMS FOR OUR ChattiGras 2016 AUCTION! Our parents are a great networking tool for this event. You have a lot of ties within the community just from your school and parish families. Review your business, family and social contacts and see who might be willing to donate a product or service. We can use all sorts of items - from artwork and timeshare stays to ballet lessons and tax preparation services. Businesses that you know will love the exposure that our auction can give them and are just waiting to be asked! Contact Cissy West at firstname.lastname@example.org to have request letters and donor contracts (for tax deductibility) sent home with your student. We would like to have all items in hand by the last week of January to give us time to get them ready for ChattiGras on February 6. Not able to make it to ChattiGras? You can still support Catholic education in Chattanooga and get in on a bit of the fun by participating in the online portion of the ChattiGras auction! Beginning at 8AM on Thursday, February 4 and ending at 9PM on Tuesday, February 16, you can bid on a variety of items at https://www.biddingforgood.com/chattigras/. You will also be able to preview items that will only be offered at the live event. If you don't plan to get a ticket, you may want to find a bidding buddy who will be there!

· Boosters are able to take credit/debit cards both at the gate and for concessions. In this way, OLPH hopes to make attending home games easier for parents on the go.
· Reminder: All sports practices and games using the gym must be recorded by the coach on the master calendar in the school office. As other groups request use of the gym, we need to be sure it is available.
· The OLPH Rams basketball teams are gearing up for the 2015-2016 Season. We will be hosting many schools in our gym for games involving the 5th grade boys and girl's teams, the JV boys and JV girls teams and the Varsity boys and girls teams. We are asking our OLPH families for help with a few jobs that we need during these games. If you are able to help out by working in the concession stand or taking money at the door for entrance fees, you will be able to earn PIP hours for your work. You do not have to be a basketball parent to help out. We need for only parents of OLPH students to sign up (not older brothers or sisters).
Please use the link below to take you straight to the sign up sheet.
