Dear Holy Name of Mary Families,


Let’s start the month of November with an attitude of gratitude!  We are so thankful for the many wonderful things that took place during the month of October.

  • Early Childhood Literacy Night was a huge success! I think all of our little pirates had a wonderful time. Thank you to Mrs. Turano, Miss Nowicki, Mrs. Gallo, Mrs. Cassazza, Mrs. Onorato and Mrs. Magno!
  • Mrs. Gallo and Mrs. Cassazza are once again facilitating the Math Club for our younger students. The students are enjoying every session. Combine some fun with learning and that equals success!
  • Mrs. Powell, Mrs. Magno and Miss Brown are facilitating a school newsletter written by a staff of HNOM students.  We are all looking forward to the first edition of 2017!
  • The play “Annie, Jr.” has been cast, and Mrs. Powell, Miss Hahl, and Mrs. O’Connor have already started rehearsing with the students!
  • The IOWA’s, Cogats, and the most popular of tests, the Catholic High School Entrance Exams are complete. Our students were well prepared. Thank you to Miss Ohlandt and all the teachers who proctored the Cogat’s and the IOWA’s. Thank you to Miss Brown, Mrs. DeRosa and Miss Ciminelli for making sure our Eighth Grade students were well prepared for the Catholic High School Entrance Exams. 
  • Mrs. Stoney, assisted by a few PTL parents, worked very hard to make the Scholastic Book Fair a success! Many of the teachers are using books that they were able to procure for their classrooms because of your generosity. 
  • On Saturday, October 28 the halls and the gym were filled with ghosts, ninjas, princesses and other creative characters celebrating Halloween.  Thank you Mrs. Stoney and Mrs. Llewelyn and our very busy PTL parents for a safe, fun and festive Halloween celebration! The school Halloween Outdoor Parade was enjoyable for all who lined Grove Street to catch a glimpse of the Nursery,

    Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade students in full costume. 

  • The sacrament of Confirmation will be conferred upon our Holy Name of Mary School and Religious Education students, by Bishop William Murphy, on Saturday, November 4.  Please pray for our Confirmandi.


Please join us on Wednesday, November 22 at 10:00 am in the church to celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving.
