Today's announcements:
-I hope that everyone enjoys Fellowship Friday today. While we follow quarantine guidelines, it is important to see each other and catch up with our teachers and friends.

-If you are unable to watch any of St. Mary's Masses or religions services live, they are available for streaming video any time, day or night from St. Mary's Facebook Page.

-In today's E-blast is password information to ABC Mouse and other online resources.

Thank you Ms. Ferraioli!
-Finally, huge thanks to Marty Ferraioli and her outstanding team for working so hard to put together this year’s production of Singing in the Rain, Jr . I hate that we had to cancel the show just a couple weeks before show time. Thank you also to our young actors and actresses, especially our 8 th graders, who are not able to perform this year. This is especially difficult news because this year was going to be the final year for Ms. Ferraioli to direct our productions. Please join me in thanking her for years of outstanding performances. Thank you so very much!  
Free Access to ABC Mouse, Adventure Academy, and Reading IQ
Many publishers and online learning sites have offered free access to their materials. Below is a link to a letter with a free access code to a trio of popular (and typically paid) sites.

Please don't see this as one more thing to do, but rather an opportunity for additional educational resources for your child if you choose to use them. I know the last thing many parents want to deal with is one more website or log in credential to remember.

Mission Statement

At Holy Cross Academy, we are guided by the spirit of Saint Francis de Sales as we dedicate ourselves to:

  • Spread the message of Jesus in our families and our community by treating all persons with respect and showing reverence for the gift of God in each one;
  • Build up the Spirit-filled faith community within Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Parish;
  • Serve those in need in our local community and in the Missions through an awareness of our global responsibility to all humanity;
  • Develop the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, academically and physically;
  • Promote academic excellence by challenging all our students to recognize their gifts and fulfill their God-given potential.
