Looking Good…

August 19, 2013

Thanks to all the Holy Cross fathers and friends who came to the annual back-to-school clean-up day on Saturday.  Branches were trimmed and hauled away, mulch was added, playgrounds were cleaned, and the map outside the door near the kindergarten rooms was repainted. The end result is a great-looking Holy Cross school yard for our students to return to on Wednesday.

Thank you to all the volunteers!

16 Baseballs and a Football

August 13, 2012

from Holy Cross dad, Jon Chitwood –

Here’s a little quiz for you…

Q:  How many balls were lost in the fence

      at Holy Cross last year?

A:  16 baseballs and a football

Fathers Club had a work day on Saturday to help get the school ready for Thursday’s start date.

Holy Cross dads cleared overgrown brush on the fence line, performed the regular grounds keeping, painted and did various interior work projects.

The Dads also modified and mounted an unused metal backboard to replace the broken one on the playground.

Thanks to all of the Dads who helped out this weekend!

Remember that this Thursday, August 16, is Fathers Club’s annual back-to-school cookout. The fun will begin at 7 p.m. on the Holy Cross loading dock. New members welcome. Come meet other Holy Cross dads!
