Dear Holy Cross Families, January 25, 2018

on the Art Aficionado program!

This week Holy Cross Academy will kick off our celebration of Catholic Schools Week. We will be highlighting HCA at certain masses this weekend and would love to have 100% representation of our student body. Please have your children wear their school uniforms. Additionally, Open House will take place on Sunday from 11-1 pm. Your family should have receive your registration packet for the 2019-2020 school year in today’s Friday Folder. Please read the letter from Fr. Michael Esswein, our Designated Pastor, to learn about our exciting new announcement regarding the planned launch of our year-round early childhood program and more.

Archdiocesan Right Start Program: The eighth grade students participated in the Right Start program this week. Right Start is sponsored by the Archdiocese and is intended for all 8th grade students in Catholic schools. This program is based on a five-lesson respect life curriculum where volunteer teachers present information on fetal development, abortion, chastity, and the sanctity of each life created by God. The curriculum is multi-modal, utilizing lectures, reading, activities, discussions, videos, and music. In addition, students and teachers receive supplemental materials to reinforce the lessons the educators present in class. For the complete program and helpful parent information visit www.rightstart.archstl.org

IMPORTANT SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION: Monday, January 28 at 8:00am, the online application period begins for scholarships offered by the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation. This is a group that provides money to Catholic and non-Catholic, low and middle income families to help pay for Catholic school. Some of these scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so I encourage you to apply on Monday if you can. All families are invited to apply online. You can apply and get more information at ttef-stl.org. For families who have applied before, you should use the same email address to apply. If you have forgotten your password, it can be reset.

Note from St. Vincent de Paul: Thanks to all who participated and contributed to the Holy Cross Academy Saint Vincent DePaul 7th grade winter coat drive. The coat drive was a rousing success collecting over 190 coats, plus some scarves and gloves which were taken to Saint Vincent DePaul in the city and the Afton Food Pantry to be distributed to those in need. The timing was perfect as the cold snowy weather set in right as we began collecting and distributing the coats. Thanks to everybody so much for your generosity and congratulations to our Holy Cross Academy Saint Vincent DePaul 7th graders for a successful winter coat drive and for your service to the community. John Davis – Minni-Vinni Coordinator

February Lunch Orders

Today, January 25 is the last day to order February lunches. Also, remember that a milk is included with a lunch order, so you do not have to order milk separately on days when the student is buying lunch.
