Each year, the school conducts a friendly competition to determine the most involved class. The points to earn the trophy are cumulative beginning with summer service and ending on June 15. Points are awarded on the basis of class participation in the events and activities of the school. This is not based upon financial success , but rather actual spirit and student attendance at or involvement in activities.
A new statue has arrived and will be placed facing onto the existing green...until it is relocated facing the new playground once i is complete (coming later this school year).
This new statue will be dedicated in honor of two of our recently deceased grandmothers, CAROLYN GRISNIK and MARIE DEGEN and, hopefully, will be a reminder of the care and support that our grandparents give to OLH.
If any other families would like to be included in the sponsorship of the statue and the permanent brick pedestal she will require, please contact Sister Kathy.
(The estimated total cost of the entire project will be approximately $4000.)
