Friday Focus

August 6th, 2021 J.M.J. Summer Edition

Welcome to August!

There are some new families, so we would like to welcome you to the Friday Focus. This newsletter comes out weekly during the school year and a few times over the summer. This is one way we remind you of what is happening and will keep you "in the know".


It is indeed August and there is still plenty of summer fun to be had! The school is getting ready for the students to come back. The office is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9:00-12:30. Feel free to stop in or call with anything that you need.


There are a couple of attachments below that are important...make sure you don't miss them.

Volunteer opportunities!

We have a couple of opportunities to volunteer...


We are looking for someone to change the marquee sign on a monthly basis. Please feel free to reach out to Michelle Bink for more information. alumni@holynamecrusaders.com


We are looking for someone to volunteer to head the landscaping/grounds committee. This position is very flexible. It would be ideal to have one person chair the committee and coordinate work bees, plan for landscape layout, and just keep the schoolgrounds looking fresh. If you are interested, please let the office know and we are happy to discuss it further.

Please note that the list is in 2 sections and if you have registered before June 30th, the top portion of the Supply list has already been ordered for your student (it will be delivered to the school directly). There are just some extra items that the teacher would like each student to have as indicated on the bottom of the supply list page.

Click the link below for the updated dress code. If you have questions about the dress code, please let us know. We have samples of skirts to try to in the office and we have mannequins set up by the chapel as examples. We do have the uniform closet full of great clothes for just $1 each. If you have old uniforms (in good condition, feel free to donate them to the school to keep the uniform closet going). You can shop the closet anytime we are open at your leisure!
