A Message from our Principal

Our Principal-for-the-Day led the morning prayers as we prepare for this week’s school Mass on Thursday, May 2. In addition, we prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet as yesterday was Divine Mercy Sunday.

Bishop Olson is scheduled to preside at this Mass. All are encouraged to attend.

We will also crown our Blessed Mother before Mass. Two students from each grade level will process in and place baskets of flowers by the statue of Mary. Lastly, one Kindergarten girl and one eighth grade girl will follow and crown Our Mother Mary. Mass will begin immediately after May Crowning.

Calendar note: Friday, May 3, will be an early dismissal day. On the morning of May 3, we celebrate the Hispanic Culture in our community. The Fiesta Day parties will begin at about 11:30am, followed by Noon dismissal. After School Care will be provided.

We welcome our new principal, Mrs. Ann Walters. She will be here on Wednesday, May 1, and spend a little time during that school day meeting with faculty, staff, and students. Parents and guardians will have the opportunity to meet Mrs. Walters the evening of Wednesday, May 1, from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. We invite you to please come meet the next principal of Holy Family Catholic School. Mrs. Walters will also join us for Mass on Thursday, May 2.

Peace in Christ,
