Dear Parents and Guardians,

This Friday night, April 22, Holy Family will be presenting “Holy Family’s Got Talent!” at 7:30 PM in the Grace Danaher Performing Arts Center at Conwell-Egan Catholic High School. Come and see the amazing talents of our student performers! There is no admission fee, though donations will be accepted. There will be a few surprises you will not want to miss! We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday night for our very first – “Holy Family’s Got Talent!”

Also on Friday, our Student Council will be sponsoring a $1 dress down day for Earth Day! Wear your earth day colors of green and blue!

Just a reminder that Spring Photos will be taken on Tuesday, April 26. Students are encouraged to wear their “spring best!” Order forms were sent home already but are also posted in this newsletter. If you are interested in sibling pictures, please notate that on your order form.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,
