Our smiles, hellos, taps on the back, funny teases, jokes & naughty or even serious advices are little forms of care which usually go unnoticed...
But in reality, these are the ones that keep everyone going harmoniously.
Let us share these little things to our friends.
Good health and God bless us!
-Fr. Arnold

ANNIE, JR!  The 8th grade musical

"TomorrowTomorrow!  I love you!  Tomorrow!  You're only a day away!"

Production for the show has been a true labor of love, as the entire Holy Name community, students, parents, faculty and staff have all been working extremely hard, both after school and on some weekends, in order to bring this show to life!  From carefully hand-painting custom-made backdrops to eighth grade parents scrambling for the perfect costumes and accessories, every detail has been taken care of in order to fully immerse everyone in the style and times of the 1930's.
Please come join us for a wonderful night of Broadway entertainment through the classic tale of Annie!  Audience members are encouraged to come dressed in stylish 1930's attire, as the weather forecast for the show calls for sunny with a chance of audience participation!
Warmest smiles, and see you at the show!
