A Message from the Principal
October 25, 2021
Dear Holy Family Catholic School Community,
Great news! We have received 30 new iPads and 30 new laptops through a government grant! We were able to apply for COVID-19 related government grant money last year with the possibility of receiving more funding this year.
The Diocesan schools are moving away from the ACT Aspire national assessments and returning to the IOWA national assessments. We will conduct our IOWA summative assessments this spring.
Our full-time faculty members will be attending the How to Start a Nature Studies Program workshop at Nolan this Tuesday afternoon from 4:30pm to 6:00pm. I will keep you informed on what we learn and how we are going to implement our HFCS Nature Studies Program in the future.
We will celebrate All Saints Day Mass at 8:15am next Monday, November 1, please join us, many of our students will be dressed as saints!
Have a blessed week,

Both the 7th and 8th grade teams were defeated by Parish last week, yet they put in great effort and demonstrated what team work looks like.

While they did not place in the tournament, they played well and closed out the season.
Their next game will be on Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 4:30pm vs. St. George on the Hornets Nest.
Great News! All their games will be played on the Hornets Nest!
