Holy Family celebrates Catholic schools

Catholic Schools Week is here, and the faculty and staff at Holy Family are planning and preparing for a week of celebration.

The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The observance is from Jan. 26-Feb. 1.

The teachers can certainly express it takes a lot of planning and teaching to prepare students for academic excellence. To hear teachers’ stories of their accomplishments is real affirmation of the great things happening at Holy Family.

They are a dedicated and committed staff that emphasizes intellectual, spiritual, moral, physical and social values in their students.

Our director, Ira Young, has sparked excitement throughout the school for our upcoming celebration of Catholic Schools Week.

The students are looking forward to the various activities, teachers and preparing for a fun-filled week.

We appreciate out directors, staff, volunteers and community for their contribution to our school and students. We know in order to make a smooth transition into the next academic year, 2014-2015, we want to prepare for our incoming students along with our returning students.

Registration will begin today, and the fee is $75. After Feb. 28, the cost will increase. We are trying to recruit, reclaim and retain our students.

We invite you to come and share with us this week.

Our schedule for this year’s Catholic Schools Week is as follows:

-Today: Student Appreciation Day

-Tuesday: Parent Appreciation Day

-Wednesday: Teacher Appreciation Day

-Thursday: Alumni, Friends and Pastor Day

-Friday: Community Service Day

We look forward to seeing you on one of these days. Our slogan is “Learn so we can Live so we can Love.”
