Principal's Message

“Tis the season…”  We are already at the second Sunday of Advent.  So many activities and responsibilities are calling for our time and attention.  Hopefully each of us takes time to reflect and chose the things that really matter.  As someone so aptly said, “It is the little things that become the big memories.”  Let us all take time for the little things and find the peace and joy in them as the days move toward Christmas.

I encourage you to keep this in mind during this season of Advent as we prepare for the arrival of the Christ child. Visiting a friend or loved one in a Nursing Home, making cookies for a neighbor, reading the story of Jesus’ birth as a family, these are experiences that are far more valuable than anything purchased in a store. I can assure you that this time with your child will be remembered.

There is no greater gift bestowed on us by God than the gift of life. That is the beautiful message of Christmas. God gave us His only son, so that we can have eternal life. At Our Lady of Peace we will keep God’s love at the forefront of the Christmas preparations.

December Highlights:

As we prepare for the Christmas season the 8th grade Computer technology students, taught by Mr. Cap and Ms. Gould, created fictional tweets expressing gratitude for Jesus, family, friends, homes, food and all their many blessings at this wonderful Advent season. All students displayed their tweets on the “tweet tree” by the library.  Be sure to stop by during Parent-Teacher conferences to admire 140 character “tweets.”

Wishing you and your family a season filled with peaceful moments and cherished memories.

Happy Advent!

Mrs. Jineen M. Leach


What's New

We are in the process of replacing the boiler system. Please take precautions when dropping your child off at school. As a safety measure proceed to Nieman Ave to drop off your child. The contractor will access the boiler room from the exterior exit. Access to the building where the installation is taking place will be prohibited. Our goal is to make sure the work is conducted in a secure and isolated manner. The safety of our students is our greatest concern as we proceed with repairs necessary for the operation of the building.    


Moving Forward to the Future!
