Hi-lites week of Dec. 4th, 2020

Happy First Week of Advent!

Looking Forward with Relish to School Year 2021-22!


We are already looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year! You will be receiving an email asking you to enroll your student(s) through the TADS system. It's easy-peasy with all the previous household data being saved from the last enrollment.


We would love to have a flood of early enrollments so we can begin our 2021-2022 planning. Thank you in advance for your early enrollment action!


Reminder: Kindergartners registered before January 31, 2021, will earn families a $150 tuition credit from the Schulze Family Foundation.

Dear Fifth Grade Students,

We want to thank you for the wonderful Veterans' Day Program on Wednesday, Nov. 11th, at Lumen Christi Church.


The readings were read with feelings and the names of the women and men who served our country and kept us safe made us proud.

Thank you 5th grade students for this very special service.

Christmas Gift Collection for Ascension Parish in Mpls.

We hope every HiC Family will be able to donate one new unwrapped toy for this year's toy collection for families of Ascension Parish. We have a long tradition of helping these families celebrate Christmas. Toy drives are down this year. Everything is just so much harder.


We will collect your donations during our Advent Festival on Friday, Dec. 11th from 1:30-3:00 p.m. Maybe HiC students could help with some household chores to "earn" this gift to share.

New this year: No need to wrap!
