Dear Holy Cross Families,

As many of you know this week begins our ISTEP Testing for the 2016-2017 school year.  We are exceedingly proud of our students' achievements thus far this year and we are confident in their ability to do well on this first round of ISTEP testing.  The second window of testing will be in late April and will be taken on the computer.  We appreciate your support in helping our students have a stress-free evening prior to testing and being here at school on time.  You are welcome to provide a healthy breakfast at home and we will always have breakfast here at school available for all students. 

This week also begins the season of Lent.  The school will go to Mass on Wednesday at 1:30 to celebrate Ash Wednesday and the beginning of this solemn and holy season.  We will say goodbye to the "Alleluia" during Mass and meat will not be served at lunch on Fridays.  We will focus on how our community can live the Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.  We look forward to celebrating this holy season and preparing for the risen Lord at Easter.

Yours in this Christ filled education, 

Mrs. Hittel
