Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, March 29, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Academy Families, March 29, 2019

Monday morning the fourth and fifth grade students from the elementary campuses celebrated the Feast of the Annunciation with the middle school. It is amazing to see such a large group of students worshiping together. Our eighth grade students and the choir helped to make the celebration special.

This week we had the chance to review and run several tornado and intruder drills. We practiced running the drills in both homeroom and families. The students did an excellent job. They were quiet and respectful taking the situations seriously. By the second intruder drill Mrs. Berra and I could not see or hear a single student!

The construction of the 8th grade STREAM Capstone project has begun. Check Facebook and follow their progress as the build their “Farm to Table Garden”.
