Student Council spent the day spreading Christmas cheer acknowledging folks who are EXTRAORDINARY everyday – our Wheeling Fire Fighters. This project was the idea of these kiddos. They called it “Cookies for Courage.” It was a rewarding day for everyone involved.
Toy Drive! We think these two are dolls, but… their families will miss them if they stay in the toy bin. So, help us fill the barrel for the fourth week in a row with real new unwrapped toys for local families who benefit from Catholic Charities. It’s not too late!
Spreading Christmas love and cheer for all to hear! Our Children’s Choir performed for Archbishop William Lori and the employees of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston at the Chancery today. It was such a delight for everyone present – the children enjoyed being there; the employees were tickled by the children’s voices and enthusiasm; the Archbishop sang along to their sweet carols; and Mrs. Kline and Mrs. Kerr were so happy to honor the people behind the scenes of the diocese who work so hard for our beautiful state and our amazing parishes and schools! What a joy!
Our fifth and sixth graders went to the MOON! Yep, they are EXTRAORDINARY! It was a very successful mission at the NASA Challenger Center at Wheeling Jesuit University.
Our lil’ saints! Our kindergarten presented their favorite saints at Mass for All Saints Day. Their artwork is proudly displayed in the hallway. Here’s a snapshot of our sweeties.
Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston School Superintendent Mary Ann Deschaine visited all her new “friends” at Our Lady of Peace. We were so grateful she took time out of her busy day to greet all of our students and staff. As she learned about our school and students we learned a little more about her and the important role she has looking over all the Catholic schools in the state. Several little ones said her name should be SUPER-important not superintendent. God Bless her and her staff this year as they guide us in our faith-filled education and experiences.
Woohoo! OLP IS EXTRAORDINARY! Today we are kicking off our theme for the year – BE EXTRAORDINARY! Today we are challenging our fears, pushing ourselves beyond the limits we thought we had for ourselves, we are working as a team,…FAITH OVER FEAR!
