Mrs. Dolan's Weekly Message-January 24, 2020

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, January 24, 2020

Dear Holy Cross Families, January 24, 2020

This week the class of 2020 attended the Region 5 Mass with other students in the South County area. Bishop Rivituso was the celebrant and Fr. Mike was also able to attend. Following Mass, three hundred and fifty eight eighth grade students put together two hundred “Blessing Bags” for middle school students at Hancock Middle School. The bags contained age appropriate personal care items. The students also shared lunch and some activities.

Thursday, JA BizTown was cancelled due to inclement weather, but has been rescheduled for Tuesday, January 28th. Because of the short notice we are in need of parent volunteers so please email Ms. Sasser hsasser@hca-stl.org or me if you are available.


The 2020 Diaper and Blanket Drive conducted by our St. Vincent DePaul Holy Cross Academy 7th graders was a huge success. Many thanks to the school children from Holy Cross Academy and the parishes participating in the drive including Annunciation, Seven Holy Founders, John Paul 2, and Our Lady of Providence. Thanks to your help we collected over 1,800 diapers, 40 blankets, and 8 winter coats which were taken and distributed to Saint Vincent DePaul, Saint Agatha, Saint Anthony Padua, and Our Little Haven. Thank you again for your generosity and community outreach.

Open House is Sunday and next week is Catholic Schools Week. The activities are posted on Google Classroom and all parents should have received a School Messenger email. The middle school campus has a slightly different schedule to work around the BizTown makeup date.
