Mrs. Dolan's Weekly Message-October 11, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, October 11, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Families, October 11, 2019

Wednesday on the Annunciation campus we had our first Faith Formation Day; kindness. The day started with an introduction from Fr. Mike and the video “Simple Acts of Kindness”. Mrs. Cheak followed up with a presentation illustrating simple acts we can do for each other. Many of the students shared personal moments of kindness that meant something to them. The second half of the morning the students met as Middle School Families to discuss making friends, standing up for others, making a specific commitment to be kinder to an individual or group.

You may want to view the following videos with your child to further our discussions.
