All of the proceeds from the entries sold here will remain in the Chattanooga area, with $15 coming back to our school and the remainder going to the Tuition Assistance Fund that is shared by OLPH, SJS and NDHS. For $36.50 (or 3/$100) purchasers will receive an entry into each of 365 drawings (one for each day of the year) for a total of $50,000 in cash prizes ranging from $100 to $500.Order forms are coming home with the youngest student in Friday Folders this week. 5th through 8th grade have been mailed.

2.      Financial Assistance for 2018 - 2019 - VERY IMPORTANT NEEDS TO BE DONE ASAP.  FACTS Grant & Aid online application for 2019/2020 opened on October 22, 2018. (Click the link below to apply.) The application takes approximately 25 minutes to complete. Applicants are required to upload 2017 federal tax return and 2018 W2 forms. We suggest starting the application and uploading your 2017 federal tax return as soon as possible. You can finish/submit the application after you have uploaded your 2018 W2 forms. Applications and tax forms must be submitted by February 1, 2019. All Families must have a signed Parish Affiliation Form on file in the Parish Office.
3.      Service Project - It's getting cold outside and many children in the greater community do not have coats.  For Catholic Schools Week coming up in January, we are collecting gently used or new children's coats for the East Lake Elementary School community in Chattanooga.  Please donate your child's outgrown coat or brand new one this winter to a child in need.  We will be collecting coats until the end of January.  You can send the coats in to the office any time until Catholic Schools Week, and they will be sent to those in need.  Thank you for helping us to be Christ to the world!
4.      Food City - The deadline for registering your Food City ValuCard to support OLPH School is coming up December 27! Registration must be renewed each school year. Help us earn points with every dollar you spend there. Our point total on May 7, 2019, determines our share of the $700,000 they will give away to area schools. Log into your account (or create one) and choose Our Lady of Perpetual Help to link your card to our school. (For some reason you have to click the Login button again after you are logged in to get to the page with School Bucks update box.)
You can also show the cashier the barcode to scan with your card. Pick one up from the table outside the office. Our account only shows 23 cards linked and I know we have more Food City shoppers than that! Bonus points this year for Food City Community Cash gift cards we sell through Scrip.
