2.      Calendar Sales - The Diocesan calendar sale ended on December 23. The first batch of calendars was mailed on Dec 15th and the second bulk mailing did not go out until after the deadline of Dec 23rd, anywhere from Dec 27 to January 4. All 365 drawings were done on January 3, and all raffle tickets received to that point were entered for a total of 8,073.  It is our understanding that a few OLPH names were among the winners! Checks will be mailed out to the winners in the next few weeks and winning names will be shared throughout the year. Unfortunately, we did not reach our goal of 1,000 calendars sold (We sold in excess of 450, but the final numbers are not yet in). We will announce the winning grade after we receive the December numbers from Knoxville. Thank you for your support of this important fundraiser for our Catholic Schools Tuition Assistance Fund!

·        Mark your calendars for January 30th!!!  Between the end of the Varsity Girls game and the beginning of the Varsity Boys game we will recognize our 8th grade players and thank their parents for a great athletic career at OLPH.
