8th Graders Donate Carnival Funds

April 2, 2014

Mission Carnivalfrom 8th grade teacher, Mrs. Patterson –

Holy Cross 8th graders voted to send the proceeds from the Mission Carnival they hosted in February to Father Bob Conroy’s Mission in Guatemala.

Fr. Bob and his fellow missionary priests currently are feeding over 300 children a day who otherwise would go hungry. He has been working with the local government to secure a place to establish a food kitchen.

The 8th graders remember the year that Fr. Bob was with us at Holy Cross and wanted to help his cause for establishing a food kitchen. They recalled how he visited their classrooms and shared his life as a Missionary of Charity priest.

After our expenses for the large inflatables that were in the gym and some odds/ends carnival supplies, the 8th grade class of 2014 will be donating about $625.00 to Fr. Bob’s Guatemala Mission.

Into The Haunted Hallway…..

January 30, 2014

Today the Holy Cross 8th grade class organized and presented the annual Mission Carnival. From a hamster ball and inflatable slide to ring toss and dj music, Holy Cross students and preschoolers enjoyed a day of fun and fundraising. The 8th graders created a haunted hallway, painted faces and provided the student body many ways to enjoy themselves. Thanks to all who participated. Stay tuned for a future blog post with the total amount raised and which charities the 8th grade chose to support with the proceeds.

Tomorrow is Sports Day for the theme, so your student can wear athletic wear of their choice.  The day honors St. Sebastian, patron saint of sports and athletes.

Here are some photos from Mission Carnival Day at Holy Cross.
p.s. Word is that there is video of Principal Carney in the hamster ball! We’ll post it soon.

Carnival with a Cause

February 27, 2013

from Holy Cross junior high teacher, Mrs. Patterson –

Every year the 8th grade students of Holy Cross Catholic School plan, organize, and run a Mission Carnival for the entire school.  All of the proceeds collected are given to a Catholic charity or mission of their choice.

As a class, they first decided on a theme for their carnival.  This year’s theme was “Mardi Gras”, since the carnival was held the day before Ash Wednesday.  The 8th graders worked together planning and creating games and activities for the younger students. The entire school also helps by donating treats and 2 liter pop for the carnival. Tickets are sold to the younger students the week of the carnival. Every aspect of the carnival is organized and run by the entire eighth grade class. While the younger students thoroughly enjoy themselves, the 8th graders work very hard to make it a fun experience for all who attend.

As Catholics we are taught to share our time, talents, and treasure with others, particularly with those who are in need.  This year the class raised almost $1,000.00 which will be donated to a Catholic charity or program.

Mission Carnival Results

February 8, 2012

from Holy Cross 8th-Grade Teacher, Mrs. Patterson –

Every year the 8th grade students of Holy Cross Catholic School plan, organize, and run a Mission Carnival for the school.  All of the proceeds collected are given to a charity or mission of their choice.

As a class, they first decided on a theme for their carnival.  This year’s theme was “Under the Sea”.  The 8th graders worked together planning and creating games and activities for the younger students.  Every aspect of the carnival is organized and run by the entire eighth grade class. Tickets are sold to the younger students the week of the carnival which raise the money for the chosen mission or charity.  While the younger students thoroughly enjoy themselves, the 8th graders work very hard to make it a fun experience for all who attend.

As Catholics we are taught to share our time, talents, and treasure with others, particularly with those who are in need.  This year the class raised an amazing $1000 in ticket sales! We are very excited to announce that this money will be sent to the Fr. Bob Conroy and the Missionaries of Charities Fathers in Guatemala. He is currently trying to build a soup kitchen and we know these funds will serve the poorest of the poor in a beautiful way.

Resultados de Misión Carnaval

Desde la maestra del 8 º grado , Sra. Patterson-

Cada año los estudiantes del grado 8 de la escuela católica de Holy Cross, organizan y realizan un carnaval para la escuela. Todas las ganancias recogidas se entregan a una misión que se haya escogido o de caridad.

Como  clase, decidieron sobre el tema de su carnaval. El tema de este año fue “Bajo el mar”. El 8vo grado trabajaron juntos en planear y crear juegos y actividades para los estudiantes más pequeños.

 Cada aspecto del Carnaval está organizado y dirigido por toda la clase de octavo grado. Las entradas se venden a los estudiantes más pequeños durante  la semana del  Carnaval que recaudan el dinero para la misión elegida o de caridad. Mientras los estudiantes más jóvenes minuciosamente se divierten, el  grado 8 trabaja muy duro para lograr que la experiencia sea divertida para todos.

Como católicos se  nos enseña a compartir nuestro tiempo, talento y tesoro con los demás, particularmente con aquellos que están necesitados. Este año la clase recaudo una increíble cantidad de $1000 en venta de entradas! Estamos muy emocionados de anunciar que este dinero se enviará a Fr. Bob Conroy y a los misioneros de padres de la caridade en Guatemala. Actualmente está intentando construir un comedor y sabemos que estos fondos servirán los más pobres de los pobres de manera hermosa.

What A Spirited Week!

February 7, 2012

Catholic Schools Week at Holy Cross was a great success, from start to finish.

During the week, students dressed for a theme each day, including Mismatch Monday, Too Tired Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday Hat Day, Holy Cross Spirit Thursday and Favorite Team Friday. For pictures of the creative apparel seen in our hallways, visit our Holy Cross photo gallery at holycrossop.shutterfly.com (password = holycrossop)

The Lincoln Jar class competition raised money for the Gabriel Project.  Students brought in pennies to add money to their class jar. Silver coins in other jars brought down that class total in the contest, but helped raise more funds. A little friendly sabotage…. We’ll have winners and totals raised in an upcoming blog post.

Mission carnival, an annual fundraiser by the 8th graders, was enjoyed by all on Thursday. We’ll highlight how much was raised and where that money will be going in an upcoming post, as well!

The school week ended with a Spirit Assembly in the gym. Students played musical chairs (with music provided by the Bishop Miege band!), 8th-graders were the target of pie throwing, and students and teachers competed in scooter races.  You won’t want to miss the pictures (thanks to Holy Cross mom Monica Roberts for taking them!) — Mrs. O’Brien was knocked off her scooter fairly early, but Mrs. Obershaw continued pulling her, Mrs. Byrne lost shoes during her race, Dr. Beverlin and ‘Mr. Mr.’ Troyer made a smooth turn after some early practice, and the other Mr. Troyer pulled Mrs. Carney to a 6th-grade victory!

In the end, Mrs. Anderson’s first-grade class won Spirit Week and was awarded an ice cream party and the privilege of naming the two new frogs in the office. They chose the names Jayhawk and Mickey.

Our whole Catholic Schools Week wrapped up on Sunday with special masses at Holy Cross. Students and parents provided music, did the readings and brought the gifts to Eucharist. Knights of Columbus served up a delicious breakfast at the school during our annual Open House. We had many families tour the school, and we hope they enjoyed seeing the school as much as we liked showing it to them!
