A Busy Week of Holiday Fun with WinterFest and the Winter Ball!

We hope that all of you had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and enjoyed some extra time with family and friends. And thanks to all who helped make the school food drive a success for those in need in our community.

We are switching gears to Christmas in a big way this week as we celebrate WinterFest and lead up to the Winter Ball on Saturday. Be sure to check out all the details below, especially on the Jingle & Mingle event on Wednesday in Degnan Hall and other festivities. And be sure to get your tickets for the school Dress Down Days, the Board & Brush event on Saturday morning, and of course, the Winter Ball that night!

There is also a link to our Spirit Wear Store, including details on a 20% off Cyber Monday Sale tomorrow!

Reach out with questions or comments at hsa@holyfamilyaston.org. Hope to see you around this week!
