Holy Family Catholic School



The Ascension Lenten Companion:  Walking with Jesus to Jerusalem

Principal's Letter

Dear Families, 


The last few weeks have been filled with celebrations and recognitions for our students at Holy Family. Our students are growing in their heart, mind, body, and soul. 

  • Congratulations to our students who participated in the PSIA District Meet. The school won 1st place, and many of our students will compete in the state competition in April. 
  • Congratulations to the One Act Play who earned 2nd place at the District Meet. The group will compete in the state competition next week. 
  • Congratulations to our 5/6 6A girls' basketball team who won the CAPPS championship. 
  • Congratulations to Ellie and Sydney for their outstanding science fair projects. Both of our 8th grade students had great projects. 
  • Congratulations to the recipients of the St. Thomas Aquinas Award from Holy Family: A.J., Alan, Bennett, and Daniela.

I am so proud of all our students as they use their gifts and talents! 


As we continue to celebrate our community, we will be praying a Novena to St. Joseph beginning on Monday, March 4. This will culminate on Thursday, March 21 and we will celebrate our dads on the same day. I hope to see many of our dads join us on March 21 for our Father’s Day celebration. Dads are invited to enjoy Food, Fellowship, and Fun from 8:00-11:00 a.m. Our celebration will include breakfast, a mini-retreat, and school Mass at 10 a.m. where our dads will receive a special blessing. 


We also hope to see our families at the STEM night on March 21 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. There will be science fair projects on display, interactive tables, and STEM professionals. This is a great event for the whole family as we celebrate STEM at Holy Family! 


God Bless, 

Erin Vu 

The third quarter ends on Friday, March 8th. Report cards will be sent home electronically on Thursday, March 21st.

Angel Virtues Awards

In February, grades 2-4 focused on two virtues - trustworthiness and honesty. Grades 5 -8 focused on trustworthiness, honesty, gratitude and self-control. Each teacher in these grades chose students who modeled these virtues in an especially positive way. The following students will be announced in Mass next week. A pin for the student to wear at Mass will be presented to them. Congratulations to our Angels!

Cuts For Cancer

The Savio Cheerleaders will be hosting the 11th annual Cuts for Cancer on March 18th at 2:00pm at St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School! Participants can have a minimum of 8 inches of their hair cut and it will be sent to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients. This event also collects monetary donations, which will be sent to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. 


If you or your child would like to donate your unprocessed hair, you can do it one of two ways:

  • you can have your hair cut and place in a donation box that we would drop off at your school
  • they can attend our assembly on March 18 at 2pm and have their hair cut at the event.

If you think your student would be interested in this, please let me know. We are also asking for sponsorship and donations for this event and your families have the opportunity to show their support by purchasing a Cuts for Cancer shirt.
