Annual Christmas Program
Holy Cross Catholic School's annual Christmas program was extra special this year. Mrs. Havlicek, who has directed the past 24 Christmas programs at Holy Cross School, will be retiring at the end of the 2012-2013 school year. Her last Christmas program was on December 13th, and it was spectacular! We have been so blessed to have Mrs. Havlicek as our music teacher these past years!
Drama Camp Production
Holy Cross School Drama Camp students performed "Gooney Greene and her Fabulous Animal Parade" on December 7th and 8th. The entire cast and crew worked very hard to make this production a success. Congratulations!
Holy Cross Catholic School Meets Their $29,000 Service Marathon Goal!
Holy Cross Catholic School recently held its Annual Marathon for Nonpublic Education and exceeded their goal of $29,000 by $703. To meet this year’s fundraising goal, students in grades Pre-Kindergarten thru 8th grade conducted a “service marathon” by volunteering to do services within the local community. Holy Cross School families launched the marathon by participating in an all school project at Cedar Lake Farm in New Prague where they spent a Saturday restoring the park. Some of the classroom services included: (1) operating a food drive and donating 207 lbs. of food and $262 from a bake sale to the Lonsdale Food Shelf, (2) cleaning the yard at St. Nicholas Church in New Market, (3) spending a day helping at the Northfield Community Action Center Food Shelf, (4) visiting with residents at The Villages in Lonsdale. In completing these services, the students learned the value of giving back to their community.
