Dear Families,


We have had a very busy first quarter.  I would like to thank all of the families who were able to participate in Parent/Teacher conferences last week.  This collaborative time gives the teachers the opportunity to let you know how the children are doing in the first four and a half weeks of the school year.  It is our hope that by answering questions about your child's progress we have been able to help him or her be more successful.  If you were unable to meet with your child's teachers please contact them via email or by phone to set up a time to meet.  

Volunteering is another way that you can help out at school.  We are always in need of parents to chaperone on field trips, help in the classroom, or help with after school programming.  If this is something that you feel you would like to do, please stop in the main office and fill out a volunteer application.  As needed volunteers will be contacted and invited to come and join us at Holy Cross.  It is very important that all interested volunteers complete Safe and Sacred.  This online course can be found at https://safeandsacred-archindy.org.  You will be asked to register for the course.  As part of the registration process you will fill out information to have a background check completed.  These two components: Safe and Sacred and the background check are mandatory for anyone who has contact with the children.  It takes a minimum of 24 to 48 hours for a background to be returned to us.  So that you do not have to miss out on any of your child's fun activities please fill these form out as soon as possible.


Twice a year parents area required to sign the Choice Charitable Trust Scholarships.  These are the vouchers.  These vouchers pay for up to 90% of a student's tuition. Most of the vouchers were signed during Parent/Teacher conferences.  If you did not attend conferences or did not receive the form to sign stop by the office.  We have a limited time to get this information back to the Indiana Department of Education.  Thanks for your help in this matter.


Finally, I would like to thank you for your patience in our transition to a Notre Dame ACE Academy.  Everything we do is to support children and learning.  I know some changes have been subtle and some major but am very happy you are with us.  Your support and patience are so paramount during this time.  Please contact me if you have any questions.  317-638-9068 or .


Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Hittel
