Girls and Boys BB teams both advance to the State Championship

Both our boys and our girls varsity basketball teams came in 2nd place in the regional tournament, and will advance to the state championship this weekend. We are so lucky that this year the tournament is in Boca Raton, so we can expect a lot of support from the Holy Cross family. When we have the brackets and starting times of games, I will send them. We hope to have a very big crowd at the games.

PTL Meeting tomorrow

There will be a PTL meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) at 6PM. The PTL will be putting together the lolligrams. Help would be appreciated. Service hours will be awarded.

As a part of this service, there will be an opportunity for any of our students (and family members) to be baptized.
