École OLPH Book Fair

Dear Parents,

From March 12 to 16, École OLPH will be hosting a book fair with both French and English resources for purchase. As always your generous support is a key part of obtaining new books and resources for our library and classrooms.

Our goal of $1500.00 reached or surpassed would ensure OLPH school receives 50% cash back to purchase resources. Our vision is to increase the material in our fiction section in both French and English.

Our last book fair in November saw the library collection grow by over 120 titles.

The Book Fair will also be open during Parent Teacher Interview nights from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Looking forward to seeing you all at our École OLPH Book Fair!!!

Our Digital Footprint!!!

Dear Parents,

A digital footprint is a trail of data you create while using the Internet. It includes the websites you visit, emails you send, and information you submit to online services. A "passive digital footprint" is a data trail you unintentionally leave online.

Take a moment to have this important conversation with your children about their Digital Footprint.

Dear Parents,

Congratulations to our basketball teams on their well played season!

Our boys lost a close game against OLA last Tuesday but played their hearts out.

Our girls were able to win against Holy Spirit to finish with a gold medal!

Thank you to the coaches for having volunteered their time and to the parents for their unending support!

God Bless
