Holy Cross Catholic School guides each student in developing academic, emotional and physical excellence while spreading the Gospel message as Jesus did, since 1868.

God of wonders,

Of seasons and cycles,

of ebbing and flowing,

of freezing and thawing:

Thank you for mornings

when we wake up to the beauty

of freshly fallen snow.

May the sight of snow

evoke in us the joys

of childhood,

of simple pleasures,

of walks wandering through

the hushed world

made new again.

Fill our hearts with joy

and pleasure,

with gratitude for

crisp, fresh air, and

with patience

for a slower pace.

Inclement Weather Protocols

As the weather turns and we face the possiblity of inclement weather through the winter months, I want to remind you of the policies in place for transparency and consistency:

A notification will be sent via SwiftK12 sharing information relative to the current situation.

During inclement weather GRACE and therefore, Holy Cross Catholic School, will follow the schedule of the GBAPS for closing and late starts.

Mrs. Kendra Faudoa - School Counselor

My name is Mrs. Faudoa and I am the new school counselor here at Holy Cross. I will be at Holy Cross Monday and Wednesday mornings. I am here to make the school day a little brighter when sometimes it can feel not so bright. This can include individual student academic planning and goal setting, social and emotional lessons in the classroom, short-term counseling for students, referrals for long-term support, and advocacy for students at IEP meetings. Being a school counselor is the best feeling in the world! I love what I do and am so grateful to have the opportunity to change the lives of students in a positive way. Some of the things I like to do during my free time would be spending time with my 3 month old little girl, watching the Packers, going on walks, and watching Disney movies! I am so excited to see what this year will bring and cannot wait to get to know you all. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns, I am here to help!
