Welcome 1

At Holy Family Elementary, we have the most amazing faculty & staff. The commitment and dedication of those who work here is like no other. They walk in their faith every single day and love our students fiercely. Each and every one of them brings something unique to the table and we would not be the school we are without them. 

When a member of our faculty & staff leaves, we are saddened and oftentimes feel like something is missing. But God never leaves us feeling that way for long. He brings us the exact person we need to fill that gap and make us whole again.

This year, God brought us Mrs. Linda Noble. After receiving rave reviews from her brother, we knew Linda was the perfect fit to round out our kitchen staff. She brings faith and a love of serving others with her and we are happy to have her with us. We invite you to take a moment to get to know her and to welcome her on our social media.
