Mrs. Koberlein's Weekly Message-January 4, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, January 04, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Families,

I hope all of you had a delightful time with your families over the Christmas holiday. The children came to school for this short week full of excitement to share stories about family parties and presents they got. They were also ready to get back to work. I was impressed at how well the students got right back into their good classroom habits. Thank you for your hard work in getting them ready for school and prepared for the day in the mornings!

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I wish all of you the best in this new year!

In God’s Peace,

Mrs. Katie Koberlein

Principal, Our Lady of Providence Campus
