OLPH Students Help Others Reach New Experiences Through Service. So far the kids have collected 704 cans. Kindergarten is in the lead. The drive ends Friday, November 18. The class who collects the most pantry items will be awarded a pizza party when they return from Thanksgiving Break!
On October 19, the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office (PPSO) partnered with the United States Attorney’s Office Eastern District of Louisiana, the Federal Bureau of Investigation New Orleans Division, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) Catholic School in Belle Chasse in recognizing Student Pledge Against Gun Violence Day 2016 in Plaquemines Parish.
True to the “green” spirit of the honor, the plaque presented to last school year’s class of Our Lady of Perpetual Help seventh graders was made out of a circuit board creatively recycled from an old computer. The unique prize, brought to the Belle Chasse elementary school Aug. 30 by a representative of a New Hampshire-based recycling advocacy group, was presented at a schoolwide assembly to thank the now-OLPH graduates for their successful media campaign to maintain pick-up at Plaquemines Parish’s 18 public recycling bins.
