April, 2019

 Dear Holy Name of Mary Friends and Families,

 Welcome spring. March was a busy month at Holy Name of Mary. As a school community, we gathered for mass on Ash Wednesday to begin the season of Lent.  The students are praying, giving alms and fasting to prepare for Easter. Please join us for mass on April 17th at 10:00 am.

 On March 12, the school was visited by AdvancEd, our new accreditation program. Holy Name of Mary did exceptionally well! The students, faculty and staff all meet with a representative from AdvancEd and engaged in dialogue about the programs offered and our goals for the future. The future looks bright!

 Thank you to our PTL and School Board for two wonderful events that took place in March. The “Lucky to Have You Dance” celebrated the special bond that our younger students have with the important adults who care for them. Our “Spring Raffle” was well attended and enjoyed by all. Congratulations to all who won a prize and especially to our jackpot winner, Ms. Mills!

 On March 20, we held our first STEM night for the students in grades K -3. Our students were assisted by students from Holy Trinity Diocesan High School.  Please see pictures from this fantastic evening of fun and learning on our Facebook page!
