Mrs. Dolan's Weekly Message-November 8, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, November 08, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Academy Families, November 7, 2019

This week Sr. Karolyn from the Franciscan Sisters of the Martyr St. George spoke with our students about her call to ministry. The students enjoyed her talk as she was upbeat, pleasant, and engaging. She told them the story of her journey; explaining that at different steps along the way, she felt, peace, joy, energy, and at home in God’s call to the Sisterhood. She stayed during lunch and visited with the students and we are hoping she will return again soon.

We appreciate all the parents who came for conferences and know that we are always available should you have a question or concern.

Good luck to students representing Holy Cross in the first Speech Meet this Saturday! Thank you for saying “Yes” to a good opportunity and to Ms. Bourne for going with them. Mr. Banks is going to be our judge and Mr. Sullentrup has been helping with the coaching.

Thank you to everyone for contributing to the Can Food Drive. The students collected 1065 food items and the coveted “Golden Can” went to 8A with over 500 cans.

LAST CALL FOR THE GALA AND AUCTION: On Saturday, November 16, 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.

Next week:

Tuesday: Mass 8:00am

Wednesday: Chess Club 2:40

Thursday: Robotics 2:40


The cold weather is coming! Bundle up this weekend and a reminder students need to dress for the weather at recess.
