A Message from the Principal

May 26, 2021

Dear Holy Family Catholic School Community,

It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is our last day of school – thank you for all of your support this year!

I have a few 2021-2022 staffing shifts that I am excited to share with you: Mrs. Brenda Conway will return to campus next year as our 4th grade homeroom teacher, and Ms. Brittany Grady will teach 5th-8th grade Science.

I am already looking forward to next year, stay tuned for more information about our Back-to-School Bash and Fall Fest!

Have a safe and happy summer!

Third Grade Gets Social!

Mrs. Wetmore's Third Grade Class smoked the rest of the school in raffle ticket sales for POG's 75th Birthday Bash!

Last week, the Third Graders were allowed to wear HFCS spirit shirts and athletic shoes all week.

Today, they got real social with an ice cream sundae party!

6th Graders Raisin' Cane!

Mrs. Prichard's Sixth Grade Class were the overall raffle ticket sellers for Middle School for POG's 75th Birthday Bash. Last week, the students sported their best spirit wear and athletic shoes all week as part of their prize package.

They closed out the week with lunch from Raisin' Cane's.

Thank you, Sixth Grade, for all your hard work!
