2023–2024 Yearbooks

Order your Holy Name School 2022–2023 yearbook today! Please fill out the form using the link below if you would like to order a yearbook. It is likely that we will concentrate on the 8th grade this year for some of the content since this is their last year at Holy Name School. All orders are due by Tuesday, April 25. We will distribute yearbooks at the end of the school year.

The cost of the yearbook is $25. 8th grade students will all receive a complimentary copy, so you do not have to order for them.

Please contact Mrs. Krauzyk via email or Mrs. Rogers via email with any questions.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Holy Name School will hold parent-teacher conferences in person on Thursday, March 23. Availability is limited, so please schedule your appointment as soon as possible. Please see our parent-teacher conferences flyer for more information.

As the year goes on, we want to be sure that our students are safe during morning drop off. Please review our drop-off procedures for a list of safe practices.

Missions for Humanity

The Missions for Humanity teams need supplies for their 2023 trip to Tanzania. Most of the people served by Missions for Humanity teams live in very rural areas without electricity and running water. Something as simple as a toothbrush or pencil can be life-changing. The teams will take all items collected to Tanzania this July. Please see the 2023 Missions for Humanity flyer for more information. Take time this Lent and support the work of Missions for Humanity in Tanzania.

Ash Wednesday

Dear Holy Name School Families,

Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of the season of Lent in the church year, begins in just over a week, on Wednesday, February 22.

Since it falls during school vacation, I want to give special encouragement to everyone to find a way to mark this day by coming to church. The message of this day calls us to reflect on our lives and on how we are called to better ourselves with the help of God’s grace.

I encourage you to go to your own churches on this day. Here at Holy Name, where all of you are always welcome, our schedule is as follows:

  • 7:00 a.m. – Mass
  • 9:00 a.m. – Mass
  • 12:10 p.m. – Service with Distribution of Ashes*
    * This is a shorter service for those who may be coming on their lunch break
  • 6:30 p.m. – Mass

For additional information, please see the Ash Wednesday Letter.

Grade eight will be selling Ring Pops on Tuesday, February 14. Pops will be $1 each, and you can purchase them that day or pre-order them in advance.
