Dear Parents,

Our school will be participating in the SchoolStore program this year. This online program helps our school earn cash without students selling door-to-door, collecting money or delivering products. Over 400 merchants, including Sears, Target and WalMart.com, have joined together to offer up to 50% of sales to our school for shopping through SchoolStore.com.

To shop and support our school, simply go to www.schoolstore.com and select our school.

Participation is key in helping get the word out about our School Store. Soon your child will come home with a parent packet requesting you to help them enter email addresses to friends and family. When you enter just 3 email addresses you'll receive a prize code your child can return the next day for a prize. Thank you for your families support of our school

Bubble Drive

Please consider donating to Holy Name’s first annual Bubble Drive! This includes soap, toothpaste, dish soap, laundry soap, shampoo, deodorant, cleaning supplies, and anything else that creates bubbles. The drive will run from February 4-15. All donations will go to the Catholic Charities Crisis Office. Many of the people who visit the Crisis Office are considered the "working poor". These are individuals who have minimum wage jobs, but usually have to choose between food or paying the bills. So often, when someone finds themselves in need, these “bubble” items become luxury items as food needs to come first. Thank you for your generosity!

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40

Holy Name Athletic Corner

The Holy Name Athletic Commission is working hard to keep you informed on all the athletics happening at our School and Parish. Please visit the Holy Name Parish Website for information on current games, registrations and more. If you have any information you would like to see added, please let us know.
