SCHOOL NEWS: Used Uniform Sale, Back to School Picnic, Red Mass and Car Tags
1.      Used Uniform Sale - Saint Cecilia's Closet, just up the few steps at the end of the main school building hall, will be open for sales after the 5:30 PM, 8:00 AM, 10:00 AM and Noon Masses on Sat./Sun.

Please consider joining this amazing organization and help us keep creativity - in all its forms - thriving and growing at OLPH! See more at
2.      Back to School Picnic - Eat, meet and mingle with friends, old and new.  Join us on Friday, August 17th from 6:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. for a Back to School Picnic sponsored by Home and School. Hamburgers and hot dogs, topping and condiments will be provided.  We do need for families to bring the following:
PK3, PK4 and Kdg - Salad or Sides
1st and 2nd Grades - Drinks
3rd Grade - Chips
4th Grade - Desserts
5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Grade - Just bring yourselves! 
You are welcome to bring blankets, chairs and outdoor toys.  Home and School will be providing board games.  What a great way to start the new school year!
3.      Red Mass - Red Mass - One of many traditions we have at OLPH is the celebration of The Red Mass as we begin each academic school year. The Red Mass is a historical tradition within the Catholic Church dating back to the thirteenth century.  Our purpose for the celebration of this mass is praying for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts, hallways, and classrooms throughout the school year.  Each student from Pre-K to 8th grade is asked to wear an appropriate red top with their Friday uniform bottoms and shoes.  The faculty and staff will participate; you may also join us in mass with a red top. The color red is used to signify action, fire, charity, spiritual awakening in the Christian symbolism; it denotes the Holy Spirit.
4.      Car Tags - The extra car tags will be given to the student through the next couple of weeks.  We have a large demand and it takes some time to print them.  Thank you for your patience.

·        We are excited for the OLPH Tennis Season to begin! The team is open to all OLPH tennis players in 5th through 8th grades.
·        As we begin practice for the season, please let me know if your child will be coming to practice during the first week by using this link: This will help us prepare as we build the team. The first practice is Sunday, August 5, at 1 p.m. This location is to be determined. We will most likely practice at McCallie School on Sundays, and we will practice at Champions Club on all other days.
