PRINCIPAL'S LETTER  

Dear Holy Name Families,  
 
We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Thank you to all who supported our   First Annual Roshambo Tournament! It was a wonderful success, and one of our preschoolers and incoming kindergarteners won! 

This week is Holy Week. On Thursday our students will prepare our 9AM Stations of the Cross. Stations of the Cross will also be performed on Good Friday at 1PM followed by the Seven Last Words at 2PM. All are invited to join this week's services.  
 
We break for Easter vacation this Thursday, April 18th at 12:30PM, and we return on Monday, April 29th. We hope everyone has a wonderful and restful break!

2019-2020 Tuition Information was sent home today. Should you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out. Please be sure to turn in your Tuition Contract and FACTS Re-Enrollment Preference Notice by Tuesday, April 30th. 
 
Please mark your calendars for the events that will take place after Easter Break:
  • Our 3rd General Parent Guild Meeting will be on Tuesday, April 30th at 6:30PM. Come see a preview of our Aladdin show as well as support the installation of our new Parent Guild Officers. 
  • Our 8th Grade Musical Aladdin will be on Friday, May 3rd and Saturday, May 4th. 
  • Our Holy Name Giants Night is on Friday, May 10th. Please turn in your ticket forms to purchase tickets
A draft of the 2019-2020 Holy Name Calendar was sent home today in the Tuesday envelope. Please note that this is a draft and that there will be minor changes. A final calendar will be shared in June. You may notice that breaks seem longer this year, and that is because they are! Due to our seismic construction the past three summers we have had shorter breaks to allow for longer summers. We have also added a mini "Ski Week" in February as a thank you for your patience with all the crazy calendaring these last three years. Now that we are back on a normal schedule we have many more days to play with in terms of getting our 180 school days in!  
 
Should you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out. Have a wonderful week!  
 
Thanks,
Natalie
