Holy Cross Catholic School

From the Desk of Mrs. Wagner

March 5, 2021

As third quarter comes to a close, we are needing families to make a learning model selection for 4th quarter. Today is the due date. Additionally, this is the time of year we start planning for next school year. In order to plan accordingly, the school needs proper enrollment projections. If you would please consider filling out both the learning model selection and the re-enrollment forms, if you haven't already, we would greatly appreciate at it as this helps us build the proper staffing structure.

The past few days I had the pleasure of participating in my first Cognia Accreditation Review Team for a local Catholic school. It was very informative to be on the evaluative side of the process. It has taken me away from my typical daily duties, so I appreciate your patience in any communication responses. I will do my best to get caught up.

I hope your Lenten journey is bringing you closer to the cross. Holy Cross Catholic Church is providing Lenten activities to help parishioners grow closer to our Lord during this Lenten season. The link for streaming is below.

As stated from Joel 2:12, "Yet even now—oracle of the LORD—return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, weeping, and mourning." Life can easily distract us from what is important, Lent is a perfect time to grow closer to God. I pray you are finding time to pray, fast and give during this special time to become better versions of ourselves.
