A Note from the Interim Principal
As I am sure you have heard by now, Dr. John Shreve will be the Principal at HFCS for the 2016-2017 school year. Dr. Shreve is returning "home" --- to the parish where he currently ministers in numerous ways and to the school where he served as principal from 2006 - 2011, and from which his daughter, Jacie, graduated.
John and I are in frequent communication. We are working together as plans are made for next year so that the transition is smooth and hopefully seamless. I am so happy for Holy Family Catholic School and for John. What an exciting time to be a Hornet!
