Principal's Message

October, 2018 

September came and went very quickly! Welcome to October and autumn! 

October is Right to Life month.  The 7th and 8th grade will be working on Right to Life projects.  We also celebrate the Rosary in October. We will be praying the rosary daily.  I recommend praying a decade of the Rosary, with your family, in the evening.  The Rosary is a beautiful meditation on the life of Mary and Jesus.

On October 4, last year’s graduating class will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Please keep the Holy Name of Mary Confirmation class in your prayers.

In October, our students will be taking the CogAT Test and the Iowa Assessments.  Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and eats a healthy breakfast.

  • CogAT Test (grades 4 and 7) – 10/2, 10/3, 10/4
  • Iowa Assessments (grades 2 – 7) – 10/16,10/17,10/18,10/19

    Some things to look forward to in the month of October:

  • Columbus Day – School Closed -10/8
  • Early Childhood Open House – 9:30 am to 11:00 am – 10/25
  • Picture Days – 10/22 and 10/23
