Holy Family Updates

January 18, 2023

Dear HFRCS Families,

Almost all of our students have worked extremely hard and completed the Reading i-Ready Diagnostic Assessment. This is going to help us not only track their growth but also know their “glows” and “grows.” They will be completing the Math Diagnostic tomorrow and Friday and we are confident that they will continue their hard work and success!

Catholic Schools Week is rapidly approaching and we have quite a few things planned that week. An overview of the week is listed below.

Sunday - 9:30am HFRCS Staff attending 9:30 mass at St. Joe’s; 10:30-12:00 Open House at the school

Monday - Decades Dress Down; CSW Kahoot! Game for prizes

Tuesday - Colors & Crazy Hair Dress Down; Teacher Lunch & Prizes

Wednesday - Student Choice Dress Down; Student Prizes: Prayer Partner Bingo; Band Concert

Thursday - PJ's Dress Down; Religion Bee grades 5-8 10:00am Degnan Hall

Friday - Spirit Wear Dress Down; 8th Grade Volleyball Game 1pm Degnan Hall

Thank you,

Mr. Elia
