A Message from the Principal

December 6, 2021

Dear Holy Family Catholic School Community,

Please take this survey regarding starting a meal delivery service for our students:


I have been in contact with Wholesome Food Services, a company that offers a school meal delivery plan in partnership with local restaurants such as Chick-Fil-A and Campisi's.

Parents are able to create an account with this company and have their student's lunch delivered right to HFCS.

HFCS needs 25 participants to make this a viable option, we would start small with a one day a week delivery, and offer more delivery days if this service is a good fit for our community.

Please visit this website for more information, https://www.wholesomefoodservices.com/for-schools/

Congratulations go to 7th grader Kaitlin Szostek for winning our HFCS Scripps Spelling Bee last week! She will go on to compete at the Scripps Area 16 Spelling Bee.

We also want to recognize 8th grade Jackson Schuster who won Best in Show in the Catholic category of the Diocesan History Fair!

Wednesday is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and we will have our school Mass on December 8th at 8:15am in observance of this Holy Day of Obligation.

May the spirit of love fill your hearts during this second week of Advent,

Ann Walters
