FYI Holy Family Parents! Next Monday we have "Celebrate your Nation" day for Catholic Schools Week. We will be taking a photo of the students grades KP-6th in the shape of the American flag! If your child could wear a shirt in the following colors by grade level, that would help us easily arrange the students! 6th grade boys, we'd prefer darker shades of blue if possible! Students may wear jeans or uniform bottoms with their shirts. We can't wait to share the finished product with you!
The HFE book fair opens up TOMORROW! Orders may be placed the week of January 27 - February 3. We can't wait for you to check out this brand new company we're working with! You can shop right from your phones if you can't stop by in person at the chili supper! This will make book-buying easier then ever, and 20% of all sales will come back to HFE to purchase new books for our library! We hope you'll find some great items for your young readers!!
Today is the due date to drop off game room prizes for the chili supper! If you forgot to send them with your child, no problem, we're still accepting them! See the photo here by grade level. We appreciate all of our parent support to help us make the Chili Supper & Bazaar such a successful event!
