Mrs. Folk's Weekly Message-April 5, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, April 05, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Academy Families,

Happy Cardinal’s Opening Day!!! SMA campus really showed their spirit yesterday with the sea of red and Cardinal gear. Spring is definitely in the air. Hopefully the Cards can bring home a winner.

Report cards will be available today online at 3:30 pm.

On Monday the second grade led us in the Stations of the Cross at 2:15pm. They did such a wonderful job presenting. K-5th grade student are attending the stations during Lent at 2:15 pm. We would love you to join us on April 8th for the 1st grade. On April 16th, the 5th Grade will perform the Mime Stations of the Cross after the 8:00 am Mass.

Today the fifth grade attended reconciliation with Father. This is always a great time to pause, stop and reflect on how we are doing during the Lenten season.

After Mass K-5 students took a picture in the Church to be auctioned at the St. Michael’s Auction in May. Parents, be on the lookout for a great addition to your house!

Hope you can join us at SMA’s final Fish Fry tonight from 4:30-6:30 pm with Stations of the Cross to follow at 7:00 pm in church. Make it a family evening.

Just a friendly reminder about our Lenten project collecting change for two great organizations. We still have a couple of weeks before Lent is over.

I hope everyone has a good weekend. Easter is a couple weeks away.

God Bless,

Mrs. Karen Folk

Principal, St. Michael the Archangel Campus


Important Reminders:

Spring Conferences

Spring conferences will be on Tuesday, April 9. Unlike the fall conferences, this is not a time for a routine check-in with your child’s teacher. Please do not feel obligated to ask for a meeting if things are going well. However, this is a great time to meet with the teacher to discuss any concerns you may have. If you would like a spring conference, please contact your child’s teacher to set up a time. Some teachers may request a conference with the parent so if your child’s teacher requests a conference please coordinate with the teacher.

SAVE THE DATE: Tuesday, May 7, Holy Cross Academy will be hosting a STREAM Showcase from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on the Annunciation Campus. The Showcase will include projects from grade K-8 based on our STREAM grant from the Roman Catholic Foundation. The Showcase is open to everyone

Change for Change Collection

During Lent, STUCO is sponsoring a Change for Change campaign. Students are encouraged to collect change throughout the Lenten season. As in the past money collected will be donated to the children of Melissa's Hope Orphanage in Haiti and also help support the missionary work of the Sisters of Notre Dame. Brown paper bags to collect the donated change came home with your child last week. 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.


April 5th 4:30 - 6:45 pm. Stations of Cross at 7:00 pm


May lunches are available for pre ordering until midnight on April 18th. Since the end of year is approaching please send in your lunch balance owed to the school office.
