From the Principal's Office
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you to everyone who came to our Holy Family Art Show: The Artists Among Us. If you attended, I am sure you will agree, we have some amazing artists among us here at Holy Family! It was wonderful to see everyone enjoying the many displays of artwork throughout the school building. I congratulate Ms. Quinlan for all her hard work in preparing the artwork for display, and to Mrs. Davis, who shared the artwork of our youngest students. Art is alive and well at Holy Family Regional!
This Wednesday, we will celebrate the upcoming holiday weekend by having a Student Council sponsored $1 red/white/blue dress down day. Wear your patriotic best!
On Thursday, our school will attend Mass for the holy day, the Ascension of the Lord. Mass will be at 10:00 AM. Please join us if your schedule permits. Also on Thursday afternoon, we will have our Student Council officer elections. Our 7th grade students who will be running for office will present their speeches to the student body and afterward, grades 3-7 will cast their votes. Best of luck to all who are running!
As a reminder, school will be closed on Friday, May 27; Monday, May 30; and Tuesday, May 31. When students return on Wednesday, June 1, exams will begin. Your child’s teacher will be sending home review information this week. Exams will continue June 2-3 and June 7-8.
As we near the end of the school year, please be sure to view the “Upcoming Events” portion of this newsletter. In particular, please note that Thursday, June 9 will be the last day we will offer breakfast and lunch. Students must bring a brown bag lunch and a beverage for the remaining days of school.
Enjoy the long holiday weekend!
Sincerely Yours in Christ,

From the Enrollment Office
As we try to expand our online reach, we kindly ask parents and friends of the school to consider leaving a positive review of Holy Family on Google and/or Niche, a rank and review website that focuses on institutions that are integral to our communities. These reviews are often a prospective family's first introduction to Holy Family Regional Catholic School and if we can successfully portray all of the wonderful things going on at the school through these reviews, then I'm sure we'll grow our community even more! Thank you so much ahead of time for your support and please do not ever hesitate to reach out with any questions regarding the enrollment process here at Holy Family.
