Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

September 30, 2012

from Holy Cross teacher, Mrs. Growney –

In preparation for Confirmation and to use their Spanish, some 8th grade students will be reaching out to our Hispanic Community at Holy Cross Catholic School by helping provide childcare while their parents attend the monthly meeting for Hispanic families.

Sra. Growney coordinated the kickoff meeting last month with a great turnout, yet there is a great need for these working parents to have childcare so they can attend the meeting.  What a great way to help families feel welcome and cared for by helping Sra. Growney set up the snacks, read books and/or play games while the parents are in the meeting.   We know these families, especially the many new ones, will greatly appreciate the leadership and effort of some 8th grade volunteers to provide childcare to allow these Hispanic parents learn more about and get more involved in our amazing Holy Cross Catholic School and parish activities.  What a great way to reflect our shared Catholic faith as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.  8th grade parents are asked to sign & return permission slips by Mon., Oct. 1 to take advantage of this volunteer opportunity.

Join us Wed., Oct. 3 for the Hispanic Community Monthly Mtg. in Pflumm Hall from 7 – 8 p.m. led by Dr. Beverlin, along with Sra. Melgar, Sra. Carney, Padre Mike y David to share ideas and meet other Spanish speaking families.  All are invited to attend these meetings tentatively planned for the first Wed. of each month!
