A Message from the Principal


January 10, 2022


Dear Holy Family Catholic School Community,


We are excited to be working with two classical education professors from the University of Dallas tomorrow afternoon! Alexis Mausolf and Robin Johnson will be leading professional development for our teachers.


The Diocese of Fort Worth has announced that its search for a new Superintendent of Catholic Schools has had a successful end with Dr. Brinton Smith accepting this position. His office will be at the Catholic Center after his transition from Tallahassee Classical School in Florida, early in the First Quarter of 2022.


The parish office informed me that there will be no school Mass this week because Father Hoa is not feeling well. Pray that Father Hoa has a speedy recovery.


Please join me in congratulating the middle school students who received recognition for First Semester Honor Role.
