May 13, 2014

from Holy Cross technology teacher, Mrs. Mason –

During the first semester of the school year, one of the assignments for Holy Cross 7th and 8th grade technology students is to design a yearbook cover. The assignment focuses on six key elements of graphic design.

One student’s design was selected to use for the 2013-2014 Holy Cross Catholic School Yearbook. This year’s winner is…. Devin Palmer.

Congratulations, Devin!



5th – 8th Graders Make Beautiful Music

April 29, 2014

Holy Cross students gathered to make joyful noise together last week at the annual Spring Concert. The concert included performances by the 5th grade band, 6th grade band, junior high band, jazz band, 5th grade, 6th grade and junior high vocal choirs, junior high bell choir and drama class, along with several solo and small group highlights.

This was the concert debut of our new Holy Cross Jazzy Hornets jazz band. And they sounded great!

The big finale of the show featured all of the students in grades 5 through 8 gathering to sing ‘I Need You To Survive’ by Frazier.

Thanks to our music director Mrs. Cain, junior high choir director Mrs. Kincaid, drama director Ms. Marx, and the accompianists and other helpers who made this night possible.

Sharing Service Experiences

April 10, 2014

pix from Holy Cross mom, Mrs. Sullivan –

Holy Cross parish 8th graders recently presented a service fair at the church after masses. The students, either alone or in small groups, worked on service projects as part of their confirmation program. They chose a local organization and spent time there, learning about the group’s mission and helping them out. They put together display boards and wrote a paper, explaining which organization they picked and how they benefit the community.

The service fair was an opportunity for all our Holy Cross confirmation students to show their work and to share the lessons they’d learned from this service experience.

Thank you to our Holy Cross Director of Youth Ministries and Confirmation Coordinator, Sandy Schluter, for the work she has done preparing our students for confirmation.

Thanks to all who came out for taco dinner and a fun time at bingo at Family Fun Night last Friday.

The evening was great fun, and a successful fundraiser for the 8th grade class’ graduation fund. The money will help support the graduation brunch, a class outing and the class gift that the 8th graders will leave with the school.

If you missed this year’s Family Fun Night / Taco-Bingo Night, never fear. It’s an annual fundraiser, and our current Holy Cross 7th graders and their parents will be hosting it next year!

Here a few pictures from the event. There are more pictures in the Holy Cross photo gallery at (password = holycrossop).
