Dear Holy Name Families,

We hope everyone had a great Christmas! Our students certainly put us in the Christmas spirit with the Christmas concert, Nativity, and Show. Thank you to all the students for a wonderful performance as well as Ms. Chiappini and all the staff who made it possible.

I hope everyone is enjoying the winter break and finding ways to enjoy the time off. While we did not have school this week, we did want to share some pictures from our show and provide an outlook on the next few weeks of school when we return. The latter half of January through the February break is a busy time with MAP testing, Catholic Schools Week, and Parent-Teacher Conferences. Please see those dates below.

We also recognized a number of students with Eagles before departing for Christmas break. Congratulations to those students!

Have a Happy New Year! We wish you the best in 2024.

Best regards,

Mr. Chisholm
