  1. We are still in need of 7th grade parent to help us celebrate our graduates by planning the 8th Grade Graduation Reception/Dance.
  2. We need a 5th grade parent/team to plan Field Day, which is a ½ day event this year.
  3. We are looking for a parent to lead our participation in the Elm Grove Memorial Day Parade.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Rebecca Mindy or any member of the H&S Board. Thank you!!!

                        K4 students learning about the letter O

A few weekends ago, several of our 8th grade students spoke at mass.  The messages that the students crafted were amazing and inspirational.  Through their words, they shared with our parish community how wonderful our school is and demonstrated the caliber of our future graduates.  Please take a moment to read some of the words of our own, Felicity Giampietro.  We are so proud and amazed at your poise.  Thank you Felicity! 

  And with that you will find a few things that are Positively SMV!
