Shining Our Light through Sickness and Health…

The impact of the “Delco flu” (my term!) was certainly felt at Holy Family last week. We had a very high number of student absences as well as staff absences all due to this “germ, “I am naming it the “Delco Flu”. Many families were able to help by keeping sick children out the “extra day” so we could best curtail the “germ” spread. At school, we are maintaining our efforts by cleaning/wiping down/disinfecting door handles and high volume areas plus always excessive handwashing!

I am happy to report that, this week, the student absent numbers have decreased (staff absences are still a cause for concern!), and we are making strides to bring things to the normal zone at Holy Family.

Health is everyone’s top priority, so thanks all for helping and making sure we do our best to stop the spread of this though “Delco Flu”….watch for t-shirts “I survived the Delco Flu!


Holy Family Saint of the Month - St. Therese of Lisieux, “Little Flower”…

The “little ways” of St. Therese are finding their place throughout our school this month as students are learning more about St. Therese of Lisieux. We are focused on the virtues so evident in St. Therese and modeled so beautifully in her life. The virtues are Joy, Humility and Faith.

I have encountered many people in our community who have a personal connection to the spiritual intersessions of St. Therese. She has a huge prayer support following and is such a wonderful model for all of us, students, teachers and parents. Her “little ways” of honoring God in our daily life can bring us all joy and spiritual guidance.

We encourage you to take time as a family to learn more about St. Therese of Lisieux this month.

There are countless videos online but here is one “child friendly”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sM3jxJkmjug


Holy Family Spreading the Love – Donation Dress Down Day on February 13th…
Holy Family Regional Catholic School and Student Council’s Global Initiative…

Our Student Council is busy with our Baby Item Drive to Benefit The Robert Moore Memorial Healthcare Center.

With a focus on Liberia, West Africa, The Robert Moore Memorial Healthcare Center is a single-family financed project to help meet the dire healthcare needs of a local community. The mission of The Robert Moore Memorial Healthcare Center is to promote the health and well-being of the local population by providing accessible and affordable high quality medical care for people of all ages.

Presently, they are in critical need of baby supplies. Here’s how you can help: Contribute the item that has been assigned to your grade (see-attached flyer); donate a box of diapers or a can of formula - bins are located at the main entrance (maybe 2-3 families can go in together); Participate in the donation dress down day on February 13th (funds to be used to ship items).

We hope you can help!

Growing Holy Family… 

To insure we best prepare for success in the 2020-21 school year, it is important to have our current families complete re-registration information and return it to school. The ability our school has to maintain consistent enrollment and staffing simply adds to the learning power present in our school. We hope everyone will not only re-register, but also share the good news of Holy Family with friends! 

If you have not re-registered yet please do so as soon as possible by sending in the pink re-registration form and go to enrollwithsmart.com to update and pay the fee.

Please share that new families can begin registering for Holy Family on February 13, 2020 between 5 and 6:30 PM…help our school and spread the word!
