Hello Holy Cross Families,

Last week students and faculty took time to think about all the things we are thankful for as we celebrated our Thanksgiving Mass. Students were asked to write about something they were thankful for on a leaf. The leaves were collected and then presented with the gifts during Thanksgiving Mass. Students were overwhelmingly thankful for their family, their friends, and even their pets. Attached are some photos!

Please review the announcements and updates below.

πŸ¦ƒ Bingo Night – This Saturday is Family Bingo Night at Holy Cross! It starts at 6pm. It is one of our fundraisers sponsored by the Parent Association. There will be pizza, wings, and bingo! I hope to see you all there! Please see the attached flyer for details.

πŸ¦ƒ Gym – As you know students generally go outside everyday for recess and then once a week for gym. As the weather turns colder, students are going to start staying inside for gym and go outside for recess only if the weather permits. Instead of gym students will have music until the nice weather resumes again in the spring. They can continue to wear their gym uniforms as usual but just know that due to the cold winter weather most gym days will be substituted with Music class.

πŸ¦ƒ Holy Cross Fundraiser – Have you started your Christmas Shopping? A great way to Christmas shop and give to Holy Cross is by going to the Boon Supply Fundraising website. A portion of the proceeds of any purchase, is automatically donated to Holy Cross!

πŸ¦ƒ Flu Prevention
It is that time of year again, have you gone to get your flu shot yet? It is a great way to prevent yourself and family from getting sick and protect those who are immunocompromised. Here are some flu prevention tips.

πŸ¦ƒ Attendance
Literature was recently sent home to all families regarding the importance of coming to school each day, ready to learn, and on time. At Holy Cross we make every minute count because we are relentless in the pursuit of academic excellence. To partner with us in this ambitious endeavor we ask that students are present, on-time, and ready to learn. As a reminder school opens at 7:15am. (Please do not drop your child/ren off before 7:15am, as there is no supervision available.) At 7:15am breakfast is served and Morning Cares starts. Students are allowed to start heading to their homeroom from the cafeteria at 7:50am. Students must be in homeroom and ready to learn by 8:00am. If students are not in their homeroom they will be marked absent and they will need to check-in at the main office with Mrs. Van Thuyne to turn in their phone, make their lunch order, and get a late pass to be admitted to class. This means that children walking in the door at 8am or close to it will most likely be late because they will not make it to class on time. If the child is late because of a delay with a Yellowbird bus, that lateness will be considered excused. If you have any questions, please feel free to email.

πŸ¦ƒSchool Calendar Reminders
November 22nd – Noon Dismissal (No Aftercare)
November 27th – Noon Dismissal (No Aftercare)
November 28th and 29th – No School Thanksgiving Holiday πŸ¦ƒ

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please email or call. Have a great rest of the week!

Hello Holy Cross Families,
11/4/2019

Hope all is well! November is a great month to take time to think about all the things we are grateful for. I am so grateful to be able to come to Holy Cross every day and work with an amazing team to educate your child. Thank you for putting your trust and faith in Holy Cross! We are so very grateful for giving us this opportunity.

Please review the announcements below.

πŸ¦ƒ Early Dismissal: Please remember if you need to take your child out of school early, to send a note to school with your child. This way we can have your child ready when you arrive. Also, except for emergencies, early dismissals are not permitted after 2 pm.

πŸ¦ƒ Map Scores
The Fall Map testing window has officially closed. Thank your support in ensuring your child’s success. Students were given the Map Family Report to bring home. This report shows their progress and growth. Please review with your child. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher.

πŸ¦ƒ Fall Scholarship Verification Report (SVR)
It is time to complete your Fall Scholarship Verification Report (SVR), verifying your child(ren)’s attendance and compliance with your school’s policies. The first scholarship payment for the 2019-2020 school year cannot be made to your child(ren)’s school until you complete this requirement. You must do this before November 8, 2019. Please see the attached flyer for the link.

πŸ¦ƒ High School News
This week begins the 8th grade Principal/Student conferences regarding high school placement. 8th graders have been given a one page document that they should look over with their parents to fill out. This document is used to gather information so that I can best help your child. One of the goals this year at Holy Cross is that ALL 8th grade students will get into their 1st or 2nd choice. In the upcoming conferences I will be asking my 8th graders to let me know what their top choices are and assisting them in whatever they need.

πŸ¦ƒSchool Calendar Reminders
