We invite you to "Feed the Pigs" at Holy Family! The classroom pigs are officially open for donations. As the classroom pigs get "fed" with donations, that class earns some exciting activities and incentives during the rest of the school year! This is a wonderful opportunity to support the school if you are unable to enjoy the chili supper meal, or just to help ensure that your child's class earns that most exciting incentive! ~ To make it even more convenient, you'll be able to donate to classroom pigs right from your phones/devices once the Silent Auction weblink is posted later this week! Can't come to the chili supper in person? No problem! You can bid on Silent Auction items and Feed the Pigs from the comfort of your own home! ~ The classroom pigs are on display in the classrooms, and the students are excited! You can send cash or check in a sealed envelope with your child labeled "Feed the Pig", and please write for which room! Donations can be made for classroom pigs up until this Sunday 1/30, closing at 7:00 p.m. as the Chili Supper wraps up! Thank you for your support in this way to Holy Family!
There was one location change made to the Catholic Schools Week events for Holy Family. The location of the All Catholic School mass with the Bishop on Friday 2/4 will be at IHM Church. See the updated flyer here. Thank you!
Catholic Schools Week is just around the corner, and as a faculty/staff and student body, we look forward to this week every year! Getting to see the talent of our students, give thanks to our supporters, celebrate with activities & fellowship with the TMP-M students/staff, attend mass with the Bishop, and dress up for special themed days makes this week one full of memories that will last a lifetime! See what all we have planned for this special week on the flyer included here!
Hello HFE Families! ~ A quick reminder that donations for the Chili Supper Silent Auction are due to Kelsi Pfannenstiel and/or Natalie Ellis by THIS FRIDAY (1/21), to ensure they're prepared for online bidding! If you've committed an item, please bring it to the school office or make arrangements with Kelsi & Natalie – if you're considering donating, there's still time! Please see the emailed HFE newsletter for details. Thank you!
