Important Information - Tuesday, January 14, 2020 Letter

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the Holy Name School and Holy Name Parish, please accept my thanks for the support of our school and parish family during this difficult time marking the passing of Dr. Patricia Wardell. It was a wonderful testament to Dr. Wardell to see so many students, alumni, families, and friends who were able to attend the funeral and celebration of her life at Holy Name Church. Dr. Wardell has made an indelible mark on the school and will be greatly missed.

Our annual open house was on Sunday, January 12, 2020, and we had several families who toured and are very interested in enrolling next year. Special thanks to our two tour guides, Paul Hart and Collin Sardinha for their outstanding job! Please continue to encourage your family and friends to visit our school as they discern where they would like to see their children enroll. As parents and grandparents, you are the best ambassadors of Holy Name School and your encouragement can certainly make a difference as parents make enrollment choices.

We have a few upcoming dates and events to keep in mind. Please view our Tuesday Letter January 14, 2020, flyer.

FACE Scholarship Applications

The Foundation to Advance Catholic Education (FACE) raises money for scholarships to assist with the costs of Catholic education. FACE uses the FACTS system to determine financial need so that each situation can be fairly assessed for a scholarship opportunity. We work very closely with every Catholic school in the Diocese of Fall River to help make a Catholic education a reality. For more information, on application eligibility, as well as how to apply, please view the FACE scholarship flyer.

Club Hope

Club Hope is a community service club offered to our Holy Name middle school students, grades five through eight. Mrs. Dawn Moniz and Mrs. Sandy Yetman lead this group. Its mission is to bring awareness to the needs in our community, develop skills, and encourage teamwork while emphasizing compassion, sympathy, respect, and responsibility in an upbeat and positive environment. Our main focus is the homeless in our community. 

The club will be meeting on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. for 11 weeks starting January 8. Our core project will be packing lunches but there are several other projects planned. Club Hope will be packing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Please consider this when signing up. We have an 18 member limit.
