D ear Holy Name Families,  
It is officially Christmas in the hallways! Thank you to all our moms who came to help decorate last week- the kids love it! Since Christmas will be here before you know it, please save the date for our Christmas Show on Thursday, December 13th at 6PM.

Thursday our 3rd graders will be leading our 9AM mass, and Sunday our 4th graders will be leading our 9:30AM Mass.

This Friday we have our $3 Rice Krispie Treat and Free Dress Sale. All proceeds benefit our Seismic Campaign- thank you for your ongoing support as we continue to raise money for our final phase of our seismic retrofit this summer. I have received many questions regarding when the 2019-2020 school year will begin. Will I do not know the specific date yet, I do know that we will begin between August 14th and August 21st. I know the schedule has been off the last two years, but as we complete our final phase we will return to our normal school calendar with the traditional two week Christmas break!

Boys Basketball begins this Friday, and we hope to see many of you at the games this weekend. Good luck to our students. A big congratulations to our Girls Volleyball athletes who completed their seasons!

Next week is our Book Fair! There are so many great books this year, and it is just in time for the holidays! Please take time to come into the school next week to browse the books.

The fall is a busy time for admissions, and we have had many tours. We have already received many applications for next year, and many families have shared that they heard about Holy Name from current parents. Thank you so much for encouraging other families to look at Holy Name. We really appreciate all that you do to promote Holy Name and to share the many great things that are happening here. We are so thankful for you.
Have a wonderful rest of your week!

Natalie Cirigliano, Principal

RAINS FALL to explain that you're not the only one crying. 
LEAVES FALL to explain that we sometimes need to let go. 
ROSES HAVE THORNS for us to realize that we need to be careful or else we will get wounded.
Lastly, BOOKS HAVE COVERS for us to realize that what we think is not always right. 

Never lose HOPE! Trust the LORD at all times!
Have a great day ahead!
-Fr. Arnold
