Please also see this newsletter for information on this year's annual appeal to support Holy Family. We are grateful for any and all donations you are able to make!

CSW Fun!

Looking forward to celebrating such a special week in the Catholic School community, albeit with some adjustments from previous years due to the pandemic. For example, we are introducing both a virtual Talent Show (see signup form here, plus the flyer for the event) and the "Are You Smarter Than an 8th Grader?" contest. We can't wait to see our students show off their various talents and skills!

See full day-by-day details in the table below from Mr. Hughes' newsletter, as well as the Dress Down Day schedule.
