Mrs. Dolan's Weekly Message-October 4, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, October 04, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Families, October 4, 2019

This week our school nurse, Rita Moylan, spoke with all of the students about vaping. After attending classes on the vaping crisis this summer, Nurse Rita asked to talk with the students. She spoke with each grade level for about 15 minutes and allowed them to ask questions. Her presentation included the basics of what vaping is, and the dangers that have been discovered in such a short time. The students appeared to be receptive to her message and understood her sincere care for them. She commented to me that like with D.A.R.E., some of the students will come home wanting to speak about vaping by students as well as adults. Our priority is working together to keep our students safe.

Thursday the students celebrated National Custodian’s Day with a poster and lunch for our custodian, Mrs. Jen Gish. She is doing a very nice job of keeping our campus clean and shining. Not an easy feat for a middle school campus. Overall our students are respectful of the campus, but there is a lot of daily traffic in our hallways. Thank you Mrs. Gish!


On Saturday, November 16, 2019, we will celebrate the Holy Cross Academy Legacy Gala and Auction. Proceeds are used to invest in the future of Holy Cross Academy by enhancing the learning environment and giving our students the best resources available in the ever-changing world of modern education. 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. We offer tax-deductible sponsorship opportunities and we are always looking for donated items for our Live and Silent Auctions. Please feel free to email legacygala@hca-stl.org or call Chasley Bradbury-Flores at 314.249.1307 with any questions.
