Want to Blog?

August 12, 2013

Looking for a fun volunteer opportunity at Holy Cross School?
We’re looking for someone to handle the blogging and social media communication duties.

I’m looking to pass the Holy Cross blogging torch along to a ‘younger’ Holy Cross parent, because my daughter will be graduating this year.
(sad gulp….)

 It doesn’t take a big time commitment, and you get to dig in and find out about all the great things happening at the school and in the Holy Cross community. Teachers, staff and other Holy Cross families pitch in with story ideas, copy and photos.

If you’re interested in helping out with Holy Cross communications, let us know! Email Marti Palmer @  Or call — the number is in the school directory.



Beyond Just A “Principal’s Blog”

July 11, 2011

Holy CrossAs I start my first few weeks at Holy Cross School, one of the entries on my ‘to do’ list is to address the school blog.  What a great communication tool for the school!  But, I’ve never blogged, so bear with me.

Although I’m told it started as “the principal’s blog,” it’s obviously grown beyond that. It’s the Holy Cross School Blog.  We have many teachers, staff, parents, and hopefully soon even students, contributing to the posts.  I thank you all for the words and the photos. I’d love to continue to develop this with your help.

Holy Cross parent Marti Palmer will continue to help with the postings, so feel free to contact her directly with any ideas, posts and pictures.  You can email her at  Marti handles the school Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well, and she’ll continue to broadcast the good news about Holy Cross School.  But, she needs your assistance, so let her know what is going on – what projects and field trips have your kids been working on that you’ve found really interesting, what tips do you have for students and parents as they move on to new grade levels, what school sports or music events have you attended lately (share some pix!), etc.  Try to keep your suggestions Holy Cross-related.

The blog is a fun way to let everyone know about Holy Cross and all the great things going on here. If you’d like to receive an email when a new story is posted on the blog, subscribe in the right column for the email alerts. We have several dozen subscribers now, and we’ve had more than 20,000 page views on our blog!  We average 50 – 100 page views per day, and I know that will increase as more school families ‘find’ the blog.  Feel free to comment on the posts, send in ideas for posts and share the posts via email and social media!

An Anniversary, of sorts

December 14, 2010

It’s been a little more than a year now that I’ve been hosting the Holy Cross blog.  There’s been a lot to say about our school!

The traffic to the blog has grown a lot. It appears as if we are fairly consistently reaching about a quarter of the families in the school population (I think). But, I know we are far from reaching all of the school families. I’m not sure if they’re not on the Internet, or if we are not featuring information that interests them, or if they just don’t know about it!

Help me out here, please.

  • Please pass on a link to the school blog to someone at Holy Cross who you don’t think is currently reading it. Or two people, or even three. Or post a note on Facebook or Twitter, encouraging Holy Cross families to check it out.
  • Let me know what you like best about the blog.  What doesn’t really interest you? What would you like to see more?  I’m open to ideas! (do you like photos? do you like the guest bloggers? who would you like to hear from as a guest blogger? do you like to hear about school projects? is there something obvious that we’re missing?)

I know it’s been a useful tool in getting school news spread to some Holy Cross families, and in spreading the good word about Holy Cross to families looking for a school for their children.

But, how do we grow from here?

I really would like to hear from you.
Comment on this blog post or email me. Thanks!

“Misc. Things Thursday”

September 16, 2010

For lack of a better name, I’m calling this “Misc. Things Thursday.”  I just have a bunch of little things to note in the blog today.  Feel free to comment and add any others that I’m missing. Also, please share the blog via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, etc. (see below the post) to share with other Holy Cross families you think might have missed it.

  • Entertainment Books are now available for sale. $25. Sales will continue through Sept. 20.  A book will come home with your student – send $25 in if you’d like to purchase the book, return the book otherwise. You can purchase additional books in the school office – keep one in each of your family vehicles, so that you always have those coupons with you when you need them!
  • Tomorrow is FIT Club Friday, so if your student has a FIT Club shirt, they can wear it to school.
  • School will be dismissed at noon on Friday this week, with teachers doing an in-service in the afternoon with the new School of Faith program. ASC will be open and available until 5:30 p.m. Contact Mrs. Growney if you want more information.
  • Don’t forget our students will take the ITBS tests next week at Holy Cross. Make sure to send them in with a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast for a great start to the day!
  • Penny Miller, director at our Holy Cross Early Education Center, has entered the world of blogging!  Check out the EEC blog at You can sign up to get an e-mail alert when there is a new blog post added.
