October 11-15, 2021

 Founders Day

This week, we celebrated the founding of the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus, the sisters who started the Holy Child schools, by Cornelia Connelly, 175 years ago. We had a school-wide prayer service on Wednesday where we commemorated Founders Day and commissioned all the classes as servant leaders and announced our service partners for the year.

During Community Time on Thursday, we continued our Founders Day celebration. On Founders Day, Cornelia Connelly would allow the older children in school to guide the younger students in a variety of activities. We are so grateful to the middle school students and teachers for a planning such a wonderful day for all of us!

Some Reminders

  • EC progress reports will be emailed home next week. We look forward to speaking with you at conferences via Zoom on October 20-21. Please sign up for a time here if you have not already done so. Zoom links will be sent home next week.
  • Student Council will be hosting a tag day on Friday, October 22. Students may pay $1.00 to wear something pink. All proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
  • On Friday, October 29, we will have our annual HCA Mission Party. Students may come to school dressed in their Halloween costumes and sneakers. Please make sure costumes do not reflect an evil or frightful tone! We are planning a day filled with games and Halloween fun for the students. Dismissal will be at 12:00 noon that day and there will be no HCA Plus.  

Twinning for picture day!

Have a great weekend!
