Published 8:14 pm Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Greetings! and Happy New Year Parents, Guardians and to this Great community. Holy Family Early Learning Center once again celebrates Catholic Schools Week this year, January 28-February 3, 2018. Catholic Schools’ is an annual national celebration of the important role that Catholic educations playing in providing a comprehensive, value-based education.

You all know when someone stands in front of you, an elaborate, eloquent speech is expected, however, I’m not here to boast or brag about how Catholic Schools across America educate students or instill values and set the foundation for the students. I’m not going to brag about how students at Holy Family Early Learning Center leave with the ability to comprehend and excel on or beyond their counterparts, but I will tell you look at the statistics of our students and that their futures are very bright. We still believe in the traditional concept of education, the 3 R’s, Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.

We are very appreciative of our teachers, staff, volunteers and community for their contributions to our school and students. This week we are celebrating Catholic Schools Week and our theme is:” Catholic Schools: Learn.  Serve. Lead. Succeed.” This year our chairperson is Mrs. Joyce Coulston and Mrs. Jennifer Prater is the co-chairperson.  Our faculty and staff are dedicated to serving the parents, community and students of Holy Family Early Learning Center.
