Coming Soon to CARES
Holy Family School website's homepage will soon feature two new pay online links. There will be one "button" to make BeforeCare payments and another to make AfterCare payments online. This new payment option will operate in a similar manner to how pretzels are purchased. Payment online may be made from a bank account at no additional charge or by credit card which adds a convenience fee of 2.65%. Payment may still be made by check or cash. Information and instructions about online payments for CARES will be available soon on the CARES webpages which can be reached via the "Parent Resources" tab on Holy Family's homepage. Questions may also be directed to the CARES Program Director, Mike Culloty at aftercare@holyfamilyaston.org.

Also, Holy Family has just started an Instagram page! 
You can follow us at holyfamilyrcs.

Clearances
For those of you needing to take the Protecting God's Children class, there is one more available locally that I wanted you to know about.   Remember, once you take this class it is good forever.  There is no cost associated with this class as well.  All classes last for 2hrs and 30mins.  Visit this link to register for any of the classes listed below. 
  • St. Joseph on October 23rd at 6:30pm

Reminder:
  • The SMART Tuition Buy Now button is the ONLY method of payment for pretzels each month. The default is to pay by credit card.  However, you can also choose to add a bank account. Using a credit card charges a convenience fee while paying via a bank account DOES NOT.

Did you know that Holy Family collects box tops?  We are always looking to collect boxtops to help our school!  When you collect them, please make sure to look at the expiration date and cut carefully on the dotted lines.  
Stay tuned for more Box Tops information from Student Council. 



HSA needs your help!  
If you have not viewed the Google Doc that has been created, please do so.  If we cannot find Parent Volunteers, many of our fun activities may have to be canceled.  We cannot do it without you!  Thank you to all who have already volunteered.
