Dear Holy Cross Families & Friends,

Happy Fall!  We have had an amazing start to our school year.  We are blessed with 312 students and a wonderful faculty and staff and exceptional families!  We Are Holy Cross, a family of families!  We thank you for your support of our Walkathon on September 28th.  Our HCSAC and Walkathon Committee have worked hard to make a fun and community building day for all of us!  We thank them for their hard work and dedication to our school.

My goal as principal is to ensure that all students are happy, healthy, and safe so that they may achieve academically, socially, and spiritually to their fullest potential. At Holy Cross, we live our vision statement to the fullest where Faith, Learning and Service have no limits! In addition to our quality Catholic education that students are receiving in the classroom, you will see them giving back to the community in various ways. The students lead a life rooted in serving others and modeling their Catholic Faith throughout the community.
