Dear Holy Name Families,


Our 6th graders enjoyed beautiful weather, fun activities, and team-building at Camp Agassiz in Poland, ME. A longstanding Holy Name tradition for more than 30 years, the camp experience serves as a capstone to their Holy Name experience. Thank you to Mr. Gordon, the trip's coordinator, and Mr. Reilly, Mrs. Beatrice, Nurse Molly, and Father Denis for chaperoning the trip. We will celebrate the Class of 2024's graduation next Friday.


Our students in fourth and fifth grades also enjoyed some time away from the school building with field trips to Gillette Stadium and Fenway Park, respectively. The fourth graders participated in STEM based activities at the Patriots Hall of Fame and the fifth graders took a tour of Fenway Park to learn about the park's and team's history as a follow up to their reading of We Are the Ship.


As school winds down, we are looking forward to the upcoming Field Days as well as the celebrations for nursery, K1, and K2. As a reminder, please visit the Main Office to complete a CORI form if you have not done so already.


In honor of Memorial Day, Holy Name would like to honor and mourn the men and women who sacrificed their lives while serving in our armed forces.


Enjoy the holiday weekend.


Best regards,


Mr. Chisholm
