Dear Holy Cross Families, January 4, 2019

It is always rewarding and inspiring to see the community turn out for each other and last night’s Prayer Service was no exception. Many of the students and teachers were not able to attend last night’s service and wanted to send the Densberger family their prayers too. The faculty and students on the middle school campus gathered today to pray the Rosary for their family. Dr. Densberger had surgery earlier today and is recovering and doing well.

English IXL: English IXL has been added to the middle school instructional resources. The teachers are thrilled as the program offers, grammar, writing, and reading with comprehension. IXL English is part of meeting the needs of the individual learner in all areas. Check Google Classroom to see how it works.

ACRE Test: Next week the eighth grade students will be taking the ACRE test. The Assessment of Catholic Religious Education (ACRE) test measures knowledge of the faith as well as beliefs, behaviors, attitudes and practices of the faith. ACRE carries the endorsement of the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) and is based upon the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The diocese measures religious knowledge through use of the Assessment of Catholic Religious Education (ACRE) in grades 5, 8 and 11.
