Catholic Schools Week
Catholic School Week is an annual celebration of Catholic education across the country. Students enjoy a special Mass, Jumpy Day, pep rally and other exciting activities. We spend this week focusing on the value Catholic education provides to our students, families, OLPS Church Parish, the local community, and the nation. Catholic School Week is sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association. This year’s dates are January 26-31, 2020. The theme is Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.
We welcome prospective families to a Meet and Greet with faculty and administration on Monday, January 27th from 6:00-7:00pm. Please enter at the front of the school. Prospective families can also experience OLPS during school hours. To schedule a tour, please call 318-487-1862.
