“To support the academic, spiritual and physical formation of our children in the tradition of the Catholic faith to lead exemplary lives.” OLPH CSPC Mission
We want to thank all parents who help at OLPH by volunteering their time and their talents and making donations. Working together with our wonderful teachers, we all help make OLPH a special place for our children.
There are many ways you can help make this school year wonderful for our children.
Here are a few examples:
1) Volunteer with the Catholic School Parents Council (the “CSPC”)
The CSPC works with the teachers and the Principal to coordinate fundraising and events to enrich our children’s experience at OLPH. Fundraising dollars are then spent on projects and enriched programming to make our school a better place. If you would like to get involved in the CSPC, please contact the school office.
2) Help with one of our major events
The CSPC has traditionally held four major events each school year:
a. The Annual Giving Campaign
This campaign encourages parents to make a cash donation in the fall to help pay for the initiatives of the CSPC.
b. The Dash for Cash
This is a fun school day event where kids “dash” around the track to music. The kids obtain pledges from family and friends so that every lap they“dash” helps raise money for CSPC initiatives.
c. The Annual Poinsettia and Spring Flower Sales
Help raise money for our school by purchasing beautiful, seasonal flowers (Christmas/Spring) procured from local vendors.
d. The Spring Benefit
Our largest fundraiser of the year, the Spring Benefit is typically held in May, and brings parents and staff together for a cocktail party, a live and silent auction, live music and dancing.
All of these great events need volunteers to make them successful.
If you want to help please contact Cecilia Ramos, CSPC Fundraising Chair.
3) Serve as a Class Parent
Every class typically has 2 to 3 class parents. These parents work with the classroom teacher to send out communications to the parents in the class, organize parties and events for the kids, gather parent volunteers for field trips, scientist in the classroom and other activities. Please let your child’s Class Parent know that you are willing to help.
4) Volunteer in the Class
There are many opportunities to help in the classroom, including Scientist in the School, Class Community Service, Class Parties, Field Trips, Library and Skating Volunteers. Please let your child’s Class Parent know that you are willing to help.
5) HELP with pizza lunch
The OLPH Pizza Lunch Program is one of our school’s main fundraising activities, and it is always enjoyed by our kids. Committee volunteers are needed to help distribute pizza to the primary grade students. Pizza lunches fall on the last day of each month and we welcome volunteers at any one or multiple of pizza lunches.
6) Volunteer for kiss ‘n’ ride
The Kiss ‘n’ Ride has greatly improved the safety and speed of OLPH morning drop-offs. Volunteers are needed from 8:45-9am - as often as you like, even just 1 day per month.
7) join the yearbook committee
Our yearbook captures the key events at school, along with sports, clubs and activities, and class photos. Volunteers are needed to photograph events, and/or put together the yearbook with our Yearbook Editor.
8) volunteer on the greening committee
Parent volunteers are needed to organize OLPH Greening Day in the fall and spring, as well as maintain and water gardens in the front of the school.
