Pulling Together to Make a Difference

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).

May Procession

It was a beautiful day to honor our Blessed Mother Mary for our May procession. An amazing celebration our students in 8th and 2nd grades cherish and all of our other students were excited about this year as we included everyone in presenting flowers to Mary, Queen of Peace!

How Big Are the Planets?

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!

Kindergarten 18-19 Class!

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

Wild Things Game Fun

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!

3rd Learns About the Mound Builders

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.

Bishop’s Dinner Honorees

The Bishop’s Dinner day began with an amazing Mass celebrated at St Francis in Morgantown before three of our own were honored by Bishop Michael Bransfield at his annual luncheon. Renee Schneid was one of only three recipients in the state to receive the Bishop’s Cross Award. Angela Murphy received the Silver Apple Award. Declan Smith was presented with the prestigious Aquinas Award. They were each selected for their outstanding work and achievements in their faith and Catholic education. Congratulations! Although we already know you are Champions, we are happy the rest of the diocese now knows. God bless you!

The Sunshine of Our Lives

Our third grade aide, Mrs. Erin McGovern,  has taken a full-time job outside of education. Instead of having her students sad that she’s leaving, Mrs. McGovern redirected her students and wrote each and every one a special note on what a blessing they are. They are the sunshine in the lives of so many. Even on her last day, Mrs. McGovern was thinking of others and not herself, teaching life lessons that will remain with her students. You are one amazing and blessed woman! You will be greatly missed!!

Lunch Fun in First Grade

Doesn’t get much better than getting to have a super fun lunch with Fr. Doug AND Happy Meals! The day was a thank you reward for the children, hosted by Fr. Doug and Mrs. Cecilia Donahoe. The kids collected the most money for the Catholic Charities Neighborhood Center. Way to be Champions – letting others see Christ in you – First Grade!!!!!
