Here are some pics we snapped of the 8th grade class’ final day at Peace. The 7th Grade class hosted a special luncheon then performed skits of their favorite 8th grade class memories. Next, came the traditional High Five Run through all the other school students, followed by the signing of the shirts. For the first time in 10 years, rain moved us back into the gym to finish up. We love you eighth graders and we are excited to pray for you and follow you on your next journey.
In the beautiful month of May and in honor of our Blessed Mother our eighth grade led the rosary for the whole school. With the help of our Kindergarten through fourth-grade students, we turned this special prayer into a living rosary with the children representing each bead of the rosary.
These pictures are just a glimpse of the talent presented at our fine arts recital. Guitar, Bells, Choir and Forensics students were featured in the afternoon performance. Congratulations students. You did a wonderful job!

Way to be CHAMPIONS BY DESIGN OLP! 2014 OLP Grad Nikki Nolte presented the school with a banner today for the schools’ big heart when it comes to community service and in particular, collecting pull tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. Nikki is posing with our kindergarteners, who were in awe of the Central Catholic High School royalty – LOL (She is the reigning Homecoming Queen after all).
Our 1st and 4th graders enjoyed a journey to space with Dr. Jane Neuenschwander of Wheeling Jesuit University Education Department. The students learned about the planets. “Mrs. N.” as she had the classes call her, used various balls to give the children a better visual idea of the different sizes of the planets. What made the lesson extra special was Miss Kotson and Mrs. Yelenic were both students of Neuenschwander at Jesuit. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with us Dr. Neuenschwander! God bless you to the moon and back!
It was an exciting morning at Our Lady of Peace School! We welcomed our new 2018-2019 kindergarten! Mrs. Jessica Glenn and Mrs. Nancy DeFazio led the children in song and dance as they learned about Christ being their guide. The children were all smiles as they performed for their parents and grandparents and each left eager to return. We can’t wait to welcome them in the fall as the OLP Class of 2027
We are wild about the Wild Things! We took our kiddos out to the ballpark for a super fun day, and the weather – wow! Couldn’t ask for a better forecast! We have to brag a little – the Wild Things management complimented how well behave and mannerly our students were! Way to go OLP. You are Champions by Design – letting others see Christ in you!
Mrs. Allman took her third graders to the Mound Museum in Moundsville this spring. They learned some pretty cool regional history and what Native American life was like on the Ohio River for the Adena people.
