Mrs. Folk's Weekly Message-March 8, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, March 08, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Academy Families,

We are in the season of Lent. SMA celebrated Ash Wednesday Mass with the parish this week. Thank you Brian Koenen for playing the music and 5th grade for leading the Mass.

The students participated in the State Tornado Drill on Tuesday. I heard everyone did an excellent job. Thanks go out to Ms. Mahfood and faculty for helping the students being prepared and participate.

On Thursday, the 4th grade took the standardized test from NAEP. I heard they did a great job and the company was giving our students and staff great complements. Thanks for all who helped.

The 3rd grade went on a field trip to Sheldon Music Hall on Thursday and the 2nd grade had confessions on Friday.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.

God Bless,

Mrs. Karen Folk

Principal, St. Michael the Archangel Campus

Donations Needed:

Each year the 8th grade students in the Archdiocese gather for Regional Masses. Starting last year the schools in Region 5 decided to make getting together a more meaningful experience. The students not only attend Mass, they work on a service project and have lunch together. In keeping with the 200 Year Anniversary of the St. Louis Archdiocese, the students will be making 200 personal care item bags for the homeless. Each school brings 200 of their assigned item, and this year HCA has been asked to bring deodorant. Students on all campuses are welcome to participate and they may bring the deodorant to their home campus office. Please have deodorant donations to office by March 15th. The donations will be taken to Annunciation. Thanks for your support.

HCA Registration

Registration forms turned in after March 1st will be charged $200. Please send in your forms to the office as soon as possible if you haven’t done so already.
