Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Having devoted my life to Catholic education, I believe that Our Lady of Perpetual Help will provide to you and your child faith-based, spiritual, and academic programs that serve as the stepping stones for your child's success for a lifetime.

Our mission statement truly reflects what we strive to do at our school:

“The mission of Our Lady of Perpetual Help School is to educate the whole child, mind, heart, and soul, according to the teachings of Jesus Christ.”

We take pride in our accomplishments and particularly in the fact that our students perform exceptionally on national standardized testing. In educating the whole child our teachers offer a variety of opportunities for student success. Our Lady of Perpetual Help offers an environment to be rich in experience and build 21st Century learners through critical thinking and problem solving.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help partners with the parents on this journey to give the best to our children. This journey that we take on together to inspire our children to lead, encourage, grow, nurture, explore, and praise. Accompanied with strong academic foundations, our children also have strong foundations in Catholic faith, morality, decision-making, and service learning.

I am happy to meet with you on an individual basis to share more about our program and how we may best meet your child's needs.

    Journey Together,

    Julie A. Freeman

On October 25, 2014 at 9 am, the 2nd annual Super FUN Run: A 5K for Heroes will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help! This FUN Run is in honor of Vito Nocero who died suddenly in June of 2013. Proceeds from the run go to our Special People in Catholic Education program or S.P.I.C.E. supporting students in our school who need extra learning, of all kinds, through teacher training, additional staffing, or different learning materials. Vito had a vision of Catholic Education where all students, despite their learning differences could fit in. Please join us in supporting this awesome vision. The FUN Run is FUN for people of ALL ages. There are children's activities and games and even a visit from REAL LIVE SUPER HEROES!!

Reminder to our 6th Grade Parents….tomorrow morning we are kicking off our Mass with Me series. Please join us in the cafeteria at 7:30 for coffee and donuts followed by Mass with your student.

Pope Francis said “I invite all Christians everywhere at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ”. Jesus said, I am the beginning and the end, the alpha and omega. Our parish is seeking, very intentionally, over the coming year, to offer opportunities to more deeply, more spiritually, know the cross. The Alpha experience is designed to study all the ways that Jesus comes to us. Pray for the Alpha Team and for your experience - explore the meaning of life.
