Wrapping Up a Great Week

February 1, 2014

The school week ended with an assembly at Holy Cross to celebrate Catholic Schools Week. In addition to some spirited dodgeball competition between students and teachers, it was a time to remember what a strong, close and loving community we have at Holy Cross. (photos below – thanks to Holy Cross mom, Mrs. Roberts, for all the pix this week!)

The real wrap-up to Catholic Schools Week comes tomorrow (on Sunday) when our students help lead the 9 and 11 a.m. masses at church. (Make sure to have them wear their uniforms.) After church, head over to the school for breakfast made by the Knights of Columbus. We’ll hold our annual Open House from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (the preschool will be open for tours 9:30 – 1.)  Bring some neighbors or friends who you think might like to see the great things we’ve got going on at Holy Cross School!

(more details about the Holy Cross Open House are available on the school website at
