Our Lady of Peace School

OLP Lottery

For many students at Our Lady of Peace, athletics is a part of their week-to-week schedule. Some may
think that a student’s involvement in sports could be a hindrance to his or her academic performance.
The research actually shows otherwise.

Students who are involved in athletics:
* Do better in school
* Are motivated to do well in the classroom, especially in the higher grades where poor academic performance can keep them from participating with the team
* Learn responsibility and time management skills
* Learn how to connect with adults and receive support and encouragement from their coach

Whether or not your child participates in an OLP sport, athletics make an impact on the entire OLP community. All the students experience a stronger school spirit by cheering on their friends and classmates, hosting PEP rallies, and building school pride.

We have all heard the popular phrase, “There is no ‘I’ in team.” The OLP Athletic Board is taking that to heart and asking for your support. In the 2014-15 school year, more than $50,000 was paid out for uniforms, equipment, and other essentials needed to support our athletics programming. In place of many smaller attempts at fundraising, the second annual OLP All Sports Lottery fundraiser will take place in June.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
Until May 31, 2016, lottery tickets will be available for $10 each both in the school office and the church office. The tickets are based on the Pennsylvania Big 4 Evening Lottery.
