Mrs. Folk's Weekly Message-August 30, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, August 30, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Academy Families,

Happy Friday and Holiday Weekend!!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful long and restful weekend.

We want to congratulate Mrs. Fitzgerald, our second grade teacher, and her family on the birth of her baby girl, Margot Grey, last Friday. Everyone is doing great. Mrs. Trueman has jumped right in with the second grade class while Mrs. Fitzgerald is on leave.

Fourth grade and Cleary Bolan, 5th Grade, will receive their Bibles from the Knights of Columbus at 8:00am Mass next Friday, September 6th.

Benediction will begin next Wednesday at 2:30pm in Church. Please join us before pick up on this special adoration Catholics give our Holy Eucharist.

The office is still missing some Yellow Health Forms/immunizations/physicals. Nurse Rita will be making reminder phone calls if we are still missing starting next week.

Just a reminder that September 13th is an All Academy Mass at Seven Holy Founders with a noon dismissal. Drop off and pick up will be at SHF for K-8 students. Preschool students will be dropped off and picked up from their home campus.

I feel blessed to be part of this community.

God Bless!

Mrs. Karen Folk

We are asking our HCA community to come together in support of the 2019 Auction. There are so many ways in which you can help and all of us here at HCA have something special to give.

Now is a good time to make sure you have all you need for school uniforms. Please check the updated HCA Parent/Student Handbook or the HCA website for detailed information about school uniforms. Click the following link to take you there directly. We will start to enforce the complete uniform starting next week. Please make sure your child has the complete uniform, even socks.


If you have any questions or if your family needs help purchasing uniforms, please contact me at kfolk@hca-stl.org.


Please complete and turn in your paperwork from the “welcome packet” to your school office. Nurse Rita needs your medical information. The office will begin calling parents next week if we have not received paperwork or updated records. We must have all updated information by August 30th.
