The next PTC General Meeting is scheduled for April 24, 2017 at 7:00 pm in the school cafeteria. FREE BABYSITTING is provided in the library for children ages 3 and up; meetings usually last less than an hour. The class with the highest parent attendance wins $50 for the classroom. Parents can also win; raffle tickets are given out and the winner receives a gift card! Updates from the council and the principal are given at every meeting so this is an excellent opportunity to keep up with school news. Please plan on attending!
Our Catholic Life Raffle Ticket sales program is well underway. All proceeds from the sale of each $5 ticket directly benefits OLPH!
This is a great fundraiser for OLPH, sponsored by Catholic Life Insurance-a 100% win-win for the school! Catholic Life has been a Catholic school supporter for over 110 years; with this event, Catholic Life provides the grand raffle prize, including the choice of a truck, car, or $20,000 in a prepaid VISA card, as well as a number of secondary prizes. The drawing will be held on Saturday, January 14, 2017. Each school participating in the drawing is guaranteed an individual winner of a $1000 prepaid Visa credit card. Keep checking our weekly newsletters for information on sales incentives for students. Sell those tickets!
Casino Night is held every spring and includes music, entertainment, dinner, casino tables and a silent auction. Classrooms create one-of-a-kind silent auction items for parents to bid. Families are encouraged to ask favorite businesses to contribute. Event planning meetings are held during the school year. Watch for more information coming soon! This year's theme is Race for the Future!
The PTC host an annual Halloween Carnival on the last Friday night in October. Highlights include trick-or-treating for little ghosts and goblins in the CDC, a haunted house in the gym for the more brave of heart, a haunted hayride past the cemetary, bouncy houses, costume contests, food, and carnival games galore.
A huge thank you to the PTC and all families and students who helped make this year's carnival a success!
HEB/Gift Card Sales (previously called Scrip)
Gift cards to HEB and many other retailers are sold every weekend after Mass and are always available at the CDC. An order form is also sent home once a month in the Wildcat folder. The program makes available gift cards from vendors such as Wal-Mart, department stores, restaurants and movie theaters. When these gift cards are purchased from the school, these retailers share a percentage of the purchase with OLPH School, while the cards retain the full face value paid, just like cash! The percentage OLPH receives varies by vendor, and is detailed on the order form. The power of this program is in participation. Please consider using the program not only for gifts, but for everyday shopping and dining. When cards are purchased for
everyday expenses – purchases you already make – OLPH School receives from 1.25% up to 20% of that purchase!
CiCi's Pizza Night
Held once a month, CiCi's pizza donates a percentage of the night's sales to OLPH. Available for dining in or carry out, simply put your receipt in the OLPH bucket next to the register in order for the sale to count. Students write their homeroom on the back of the receipt; and the class with the highest number of receipts wins a pizza party for their class. This is also a great opportunity to meet up with other OLPH families.
The PTC sells OLPH t-shirts in both adult and children's sizes, along with other OLPH accessories. The "Spirit Shop" is available at the Registration Fair and at many PTC meetings. PLEASE NOTE: Order forms for the new field trip t-shirt are available in the office, or for download on Renweb, it is considered the official field trip shirt.
More Fundraising Opportunities
Please also save Box Tops for Education, Soup Labels, toner cartridges, labels from Tyson products, and labels from Nestle Water for other fundraising opportunities! All of the above can be turned into the classroom teacher; or to the school office.
