Holy Name Highlights

August 24, 2018

Note from the Principal's Desk

Giant Community,

As this week came to a close it was great to see our middle school students taking part in their Exploratory classes. I was energized to see our photography club learning about and making pinhole cameras, our service club helped change the parking lot sign (as well as other things), and our Giant Buddies met with their classes they will be serving for the first time. It is great to see the kids shine outside the traditional classroom setting.

Have a great weekend!

-Mr. Kitchens

Dates to Remember

From The Social Worker

From the Desk of the Social Worker:

I am excited to be back at Holy Name School for a wonderful new school year! I am here to assist your children with any problem they might be struggling with. Some examples of things I can help with are grief, anxiety, depression, peer conflicts, as well as separation or divorce related issues.

I will need your permission to see any student in grades Pre-K through 5th, unless there is an emergency, but students in the middle school may self-refer.

I will be at Holy Name on Wednesday this year.

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you and your children!

Cub Scouts

Scout me in!

Another fun year of scouting adventure begins on August 21st!!

The year-long program that includes: arts & crafts, swimming, hiking, camping, archery, outdoor cooking, B.B. rifle shooting, campfires, and pinewood derby are a part of the Scouting experience. Past years have included a police helicopter landing on our football field, birds of prey demonstrations, trained canine police officers, and rising 50 feet into the air on a fire engine bucket.

Pack 92 at St. Mark will have a registration night beginning at 6:30 on Tuesday, August 21st. Boys and girls in Kindergarten through 5th grade (ages 5 to 10) are invited to attend with an adult. Bring a buddy along too, because Scouting with your best friend lasts a lifetime.

An adult representative will be at school to talk about Scouting and answer questions. A recent BSA membership policy change allows the entire family to participate. Parents’ questions about Pack structure can be answered at registration night. Questions that can’t wait can be directed to John Hibner at hibnerjohn@yahoo.com. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.

Still Enrolling for this Fall!

We are still enrolling students for the upcoming year. We still have room in almost every grade, so if you know someone who you think would want to join the Holy Name family, let us know and we can reach out to them!

Please pay and negative balances and fund your child’s account for future purchases. We would like to have all accounts current when we go on Spring Break. As always, call and/or email me with any questions @ lstevenson@holyname.cc. Thank you.

Oktoberfest Sign-Ups!

The Holy Name Catholic Church Oktoberfest, scheduled this year for October 5th and 6th, is a fun and family-friendly festival with great live music, delicious authentic homemade German food and desserts, and popular adult beverages. It's one of Holy Name's biggest fundraisers of the year, and because a significant portion of the Parish budget is used to support the school, this fundraiser also directly benefits our students.

The Holy Name Oktoberfest Committee is now seeking volunteers to help make it a success. Please consider donating just a few hours of your time in support of this important fundraiser for Holy Name students, teachers, and parishioners. (Note: While Roncalli students are welcome to volunteer as service hours, our Holy Name kids are not old enough to sign up.) Use the SignUp Genius link below, or call the Parish Office at 317-784-5454. We can't do this without you!
