PRINCIPAL'S LETTER  


Dear H oly Name Families,


Happy Tuesday! Earlier today we offered a tour via FaceTime to a family who is moving from South Carolina. The kids were so friendly as they waved to our interested mom. She commented multiple times how happy, kind, and friendly our students seem. What a blessing your children are!

***********

We know the end of the year is always a very busy time, yet we are hopeful that we can still count on your support in the coming two weeks as we are in great need of volunteers.

We Need Help!
We  had to change our 8th Grade Graduation Social that was scheduled for this Friday to this Saturday from 7-9PM. We also need to start packing up our classrooms as we prepare for our construction project. If you are able to help with either event please email me at ncirigliano@holynamesf.com or call the main office at 415-731-4077.

Safety Program (4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grades)
A paper went home today to our 4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Families about the new Teaching Touching Program that the Archdiocese has adopted.
Please click here for the 4th Grade Lesson Plan, the 6th-8th Lesson Plan, and the Program Safety Guide. If you would like to opt your child out of the program, please return the paper that was sent home by this Thursday.

All grades that did not receive this letter had already completed the previous safety program earlier this year. Next year all students in K-8 will transition to this new safety program.

A MESSAGE FROM FATHER ARNOLD  

Life is never easy.  
We can decide for things we need but we can't expect a good result.  
We can choose a lifestyle we want but we can't be sure of contentment.  
We can enjoy the feeling of loving and  being loved, but there is no sure way for true happiness.  
But if we let God be our life's guide, we can be sure of safe landing, real contentment, inner peace and true happiness....
Blessings to you,
-Fr. Arnold
