Dear Holy Cross Families, May 31, 2019

Congratulations to the Holy Cross Academy Class of 2019 on their Graduation Liturgy. In Fr. Rothschild’s homily he told the students we will know that Holy Cross was successful if they grow up to follow in the path of Christ. Following Mass the graduates and their parents returned to the Annunciation gym for a class dinner and party. The gym was transformed into a blue and gold ballroom and the food was delicious! Thank you to seventh grade parent, Mischelle Leahy, for organizing the evening and the numerous seventh grade parents who set up, serve, and cleaned up the party. The evening was a true community effort.

Many thanks and much appreciation to Angie Kuehnle for all her efforts in making sure our cafeteria ran smoothly. Mrs. Kuehnle, along with aides Judy Cernich and Barb Roddy made sure every student had something to eat, even when they forgot a lunch or dropped a tray. We are grateful to the volunteer parents who helped as well.

I would like to personally thank Fr. Mike Esswein for his spiritual guidance and Mrs. Theresa Berra for her patience and kindness keeping our office running smoothly. I cannot express enough appreciation for all of the faculty and staff. I am amazed in how much effort and passion they each put into providing an excellent Catholic education for our students. In addition to teaching their content subject, the teachers offer several special Electives allowing student-choice in enrichment opportunities. I am also pleased and excited that everyone, one with the exception of Mrs. McDaniel, will be returning in the fall!
