Dear parents and guardians, 
As we begin to prepare for the close of the school year I want to take a minute to thank you for all of the support you have given to Holy Family this year.  Whether you have made a donation to the Annual Appeal, Jumbo Jackpot, Walk-a-thon or shared some positive words about Holy Family in your community, we are here because of you!   The students and families of Holy Family are some of the many reasons our school is such a great place to be every day. 
During your travels this summer to the beach, the pool, or the neighborhood playground, please continue to spread the good news about our school.  We are still registering students throughout the summer and welcome any new families who may join us.  
Thank you again for everything you have done to help make Holy Family the great place it is today!

Also, we have received some information about the delay in Terra Nova results.  Please read the letter here.
