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

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, April 05, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Families, April 5, 2019

Wednesday we had our fourth and final Faith Formation Day of this school year. The theme was Humility. Fr. Mike started the day with interviews of famous people showing humility or not and discussing the difference. His nephew Andrew, graduate of Bishop DuBourg and now a college student at SLU, spoke with the students about his experience as a Bat Boy for the St. Louis Cardinals. He talked about saying “Yes” to many good opportunities, in high school and college, especially in his service to others in his school and community. The students worked in their families and homerooms putting on humility skits, reflecting on Bible verses and making posters using humility quotes. Look for the quotes as you visit the middle school.

In addition to their exercises in humility, the students had the opportunity to attend a presentation on the Shroud of Turin.

CAMP IS HERE! The sixth grade class will be leaving for camp following Mass on Tuesday, April 9th. Please pray for our students to experience a fun and safe trip as they get to know each other better and engage in team building activities. We are grateful to the many parents who are helping to chaperone the week. The estimated time to return is Friday around 3:00 p.m. Mrs. Berra will send out an email to help parents with the pickup time.

Once again, eighteen students represented Holy Cross Academy in a Regional Math Meet held at Christ Prince of Peace on Tuesday. Under the leadership of Ms. Tavernaro, and prepared by our math teachers Mrs. Wray, Ms. Tavernaro, and Mrs. Cheak, our students received blue and red ribbons. I commend our students for preparing during after school Math Club and spending an afternoon to participate.

Looking ahead: This year, Grandparent Masses will be on Tuesday, April 16th and Tuesday, April 23rd at 8:00 a. m. on the Annunciation campus. Please be sure to RSVP by April 5th.
