Join Holy Family for celebration

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, January 26, 2011

We are all excited about Catholic Schools Week, which begins Sunday. It is an annual national celebration recognizing the important role that Catholic schools and early childhood centers play in providing a comprehensive, values-based education for America’s young people.

Catholic schools throughout Mississippi have educated thousands of students of Catholic and other faith traditions in a learning environment of high academic standards, ethics and religious beliefs supported by the home.

This is the time to reaffirm the spiritual value in each student in the eyes of God, to encourage students to reach for academic achievement, and to recognize parents, teachers, staff, community and the administration of Holy Family Early Learning Center for their dedication and professionalism.

Catholic Schools Week will be a week of fun and fulfilling activities.

On Sunday, the opening day, we will begin our annual celebration with an 8 a.m. Mass in the church. We are inviting all faculty, staff, students, parents and church family to come out and celebrate the beginning of Catholic Schools Week at Holy Family.

Monday will be student appreciation day.

Tuesday will be parent appreciation day.

Wednesday will be teacher appreciation day.

Thursday will be alumni, friends and pastors day.

And Friday will be community service day. Members of the community will come and read to our students.

Come join us at Holy Family, where No Child is Left Behind.

Ira S. Young is the educational director of Holy Family Early Learning Center.
