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!

Here are some guidelines for the day:
We are all excited about our last day of school tomorrow as we celebrate a belated Fiesta Day! We will start our day with Mass, please remember this as you choose your attire for the day.
