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

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, March 08, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Families,

As we enter the season of Lent, it is good to pause and reflect to find ways to pray, sacrifice, and give to others. Here at school we will be praying the stations of the cross each week and we are doing a Change for Change collection to benefit an orphanage in Haiti. I hope that you will also find ways to pray, sacrifice, and give together as a family at home.

I hope all of you enjoy this weekend with your families. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if there is any way I may be of help!

In God’s Peace,

Mrs. Katie Koberlein

Principal, Our Lady of Providence Campus

Ordering for April and May lunches is now open online. April lunch orders are due by March 22, and May orders are due by April 18. Order now so you don’t forget! Please remember when ordering that a milk is included with a lunch order.

Rockin’ Jump

Holy Cross Academy is having a fundraiser at Rockin’ Jump on Wednesday, March 13, 4:00-8:00pm. The special fundraiser price is $15 for two hours of jumping (usually $21), and $5 of that gets donated back to HCA! Click Here for more details and to order tickets online.

End of Third Quarter

The third quarter will end on Friday, March 29. On Friday, March 15, online gradebook viewing will be closed for parents to allow teachers to begin preparing report cards in our online system. Report cards will be available online on Friday, April 5 at 3:30pm.

Change for Change Collection

During Lent, STUCO is sponsoring a Change for Change campaign. Students are encouraged to collect change throughout the Lenten season. Money collected will be donated to the children of Melissa's Hope Orphanage in Haiti and to help support the missionary work of the Sisters of Notre Dame. Brown paper bags to collect the donated change are coming home with your child today. Please return them to the school office by April 12. For more information on Melissa's Hope, please go to melissashope.org There are pictures and videos of the children and families in Haiti supported by the orphanage.

Fish Fry

Please come to the Our Lady of Providence Fish Fry. The OLP Men’s Club runs this fish fry every Friday in Lent except for Good Friday. The Men’s Club does a lot to help our school, and this is their main fundraiser. Come get some delicious fish (or frog legs!) while supporting our parish and school!

Cold and Flu Season

We are continuing to see cases of cold/flu here at the OLP campus. We are doing as much as possible within the schools to safeguard our classrooms by wiping down desks, tables, doorknobs, etc. and encouraging hand washing. We are also asking for your help to prevent the spread of illness. If your child shows any symptoms of upper respiratory illnesses (ie. runny nose, cough, sneezing, and especially fever), they need to be kept at home until fever-free for at least 24 hours without fever-reducing medications. Thank you as always for your support. Let’s continue working together to keep Holy Cross Academy schools safe and healthy!
