Dear Holy Cross Families, September 27, 2019

It was good to be back on the regular schedule after testing. Tuesday during Mass, Fr. Mike commissioned the Student Council for the 2019-2020 school year including the fifth grade representatives from the elementary campuses. He used Jesus as an example of servant leadership. Leaders should not be interested in themselves but in serving those they represent. Congratulations to the following students serving as officers and middle school representatives:

President: Miles Rittenhouse

Vice President: Luke Salmo

Secretary: Maggie Baker

Faith Community Leader: Thomas Mueller

Co-Treasurers: Madhavan Anbukumar, Maggie Powers

6A Representative: Cecilia Simpson 8A Representative: Gus Shoults

6B Representative: Ben Hiatt 8B Representative: Rory Conboy

7A Representative: Maggie Kellogg 8C Representative: Conner Leahy

7B Representative: Ian Selsor

Monarch Butterflies: Rory, Maeve and Liam Conboy brought in chrysalises from home so everyone could see them emerge into beautiful monarch butterflies. Yesterday, two emerged during class in Ms. Bourne’s room, and today one emerged. The students got to see this amazing process and set them free in the garden. Monarch butterflies that emerge during this time of year will migrate all the way to Mexico in search of warmer climes.
