Principal's Message

November 2018

Dear Holy Name of Mary Families,

Let’s start the month of November with an
attitude of gratitude!  We are so thankful for the many wonderful things that took place during the month of October.

  • Early Childhood Literacy Night was a huge success! I think all of our little Cowgirls and Cowboys had a wonderful time. Thank you to Mrs. Gallo, Mrs. Cassazza, Mrs. Onorato Miss Nowicki and Miss David!
  • Mrs. Gallo and Mrs. Cassazza are once again facilitating the Math Club for our younger students. The students are enjoying every session. Combine some fun with learning and that equals success!
  • Mr. Waszak has been practicing with the boy’s basketball team. We are looking forward to cheering, with our cheerleaders, for them in December.
  • The play “Beauty and the Beast, Jr.” has been cast, and Mrs. Powell, Miss Hahl and Mrs. O’Connor have already started rehearsing with the students.
  • The IOWA’s, Cogats, and the most popular of tests, the Catholic High School Entrance Exams are complete. Our students were well prepared. Thank you to Miss Ohlandt and all the teachers who proctored the Cogat’s and the IOWA’s.
  • The sacrament of Confirmation was conferred upon our Holy Name of Mary School and Religious Education students, by Bishop Robert Brennan, on Thursday, October 4.The church was filled with the Holy Spirit.
  • Mrs. Stoney, assisted by a few PTL parents, worked very hard to make the Scholastic Book Fair a success. The students enjoyed the book selection and because of the enthusiasm of the shoppers, we will be able to purchase more books with our Scholastic Dollars.
  • On Saturday, October 27 the halls and the gym were filled with ghosts, ninjas, princesses and other creative characters celebrating Halloween.Thank you Mrs. Stoney and Mrs. Llewelyn and our very busy PTL parents for a safe, fun and festive Halloween celebration! The school Halloween Outdoor Parade was enjoyable for all who lined Grove Street to catch a glimpse of the Nursery,

    Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade students in full costume.
