- Raider's Weekly - Welcome Back!
Holy Redeemer Catholic School, Sept 2
Welcome to Holy Redeemer Catholic School
We would like to welcome you and your children to our Holy Redeemer family for the 2022-2023 school year! Walking through the classrooms and halls of Holy Redeemer this week, the dedication and commitment to your children is evident as teachers and staff members have been diligently preparing to welcome your children back to school.
Our EICS division theme this year, Better Together - one body in Christ comes from the scripture Romans 12:5. God is awesome and we have an awesome responsibility in our call to serve in Catholic Schools. We are in collaboration with God. God needs us to do His work. This cannot happen without being in a relationship with Him and with others. Together. Simply put - we are called to love and serve the Lord by loving and serving our staff, students and families.
After a few years of Covid, we celebrate having our students, parents, and school community come together. As parents and grandparents, you are always welcome at our school! Please touch base with your teachers to volunteer in our classrooms, join field trips, coach or assist with one of our school teams, and/or join our school/parent council. Please get involved! We appreciate you, need you, and are thankful for your help and support. We are Better Together.
We are so excited for next week and cannot wait to see your children!
