Sunday marks the start of Catholic Schools Week. We have some fun activities planned for students. See below for a list of events and activities for the week.

  • Sunday: Celebrating your Parish - Students who wear their uniforms to mass and take a picture with their pastor will be given a dress down day pass. Email pictures to Mrs. dos Santos.
  • Monday: Celebrating your Community - Students are asked to bring in a cereal box or other boxed non-perishable food to donate to our local food pantry and Veterans' Association. We will collect food throughout the week. Help us line the hallway with food boxes to set up a line for dominos! The class that brings in the most perishable items by the end of the week will win a pizza party.
    Students will make luminaria bags and fill them with their prayer intentions.
  • Tuesday: Celebrating your Students - Get ready for school-wide bingo! Students will spend the afternoon playing bingo for fun prizes.
  • Wednesday: Celebrating the Nation - Students are encouraged to dress down in their red, white, and blue. Middle school students should wear clothes appropriate for gym class. Dress down day rules apply for all other students.
  • Thursday: Celebrating Vocations - We will begin the day with school-wide mass and pray for Catholic schools and vocations. Students will be introduced to our new virtue for the month of February, honesty. Our friends from the Maronite Servants of Christ the Light community will visit our students in class. Grades 7 and 8 will attend the middle school challenge at Bishop Stang. Students should wear their favorite Husky gear to show their school pride. Don't forget to bring in your permission slips.

Inclement Weather and School Cancelation and Delay Announcements

Holy Name used School Messenger in the past to communicate with families about school delays and cancelations due to inclement weather. We no longer have access to this program and are currently setting up a new system for school-wide notifications. Until this system is in place, we will communicate delays and cancelations of school on Facebook and via email.
