From the Principal's Office

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are very excited to be presenting a brand-new event this year – “Holy Family’s Got Talent!” This impressive display of talent will take place on Friday evening, April 22 at Conwell-Egan Catholic High School’s Performing Arts Center, beginning at 7:30 PM. Please mark your calendar! It promises to be an entertaining night and there just might be a few surprise performances you won’t want to miss!

We are pleased to share our second trimester’s Honor Roll in today’s newsletter. We congratulate all our students who made Honor Roll for their hard work the past trimester. I also encourage everyone to do their very best work this last trimester! Work hard until the end of the year and you will be finishing the year with your best effort!

This Friday we will be celebrating First Friday Mass at 9:30 AM. Please join us if your schedule permits.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Haggerty

Graduate Spotlight!

Yearbook Order!

Please place your Yearbook Order (School Year 2021-2022) by this week using this link. The cost of the yearbook is $30 each. Don't delay so you don't miss out on bringing home the memories of this school year! Books will be distributed in June for those who ordered.

Note: 8th graders will receive a yearbook as part of their graduation fee so there is no need to place an online order unless they need more than one copy.
