Higher tech classrooms, science fair, futbol and more
Happy (Late) Easter from Holy Cross

I'm excited to share more great stories about how we're improving learning at Holy Cross, as well as some general stories about what we and our supporters have been up to.

Also, I'd like to pass our sincere and heartfelt thanks to all those who have dropped in to donate supplies from our wishlist. Bringing these supplies really helps us give our best to the students.

I hope you enjoy reading these as much as we've enjoyed watching them unfold.
Teachers learn computing
Classrooms go High(er) Tech
For a long time our staff have known that using some of the many online educational tools would really help our students. However, knowing is a long way from doing.  But thanks to a small group of individuals from All Saints Episcopal School in Fort Worth, TX, we took a big step forward by installing wi-fi through-out the school. Students can now learn online with the recently donated class set of chrome books.

Science Fair
Holy Cross held it's second science fair, and all levels participated. It was very interesting to see the very varied experiments on display. Standard 6 went all out, showing different ways clean energy can be generated.

St Michael's on a Mission
St Michael's Episcopal Church in Raleigh, North Carolina came over Easter and took on 6 great projects including adding ceilings in our infant division and running a vacation bible school. Thank you for your 10 years of faithful service and we look forward to many years to come.

Much More Than Futbol
More than Futbol
Coach Abby Paris has been working for three months to start a futbol (soccer) league program at Holy Cross. Older students help coach and will represent Holy Cross against a rival school. Younger students love being able to learn the game.

Abby teaching empowerment
Coach Abby also held empowerment training for students in the upper division, which the students responded very well to.

Correction: In the previous newsletter I incorrectly attributed a generous donation of chrome books as having come from All Saints Episcopal School in Forth Worth, Texas. Instead they came from Bob Kenyon, the Director of Technology at All Saints School, and from his wife Carla Kenyon. Thank you again for your incredible generosity.
