Let us remember and celebrate the life of Sister Elizabeth Marie Lynch, CSJ, who died peacefully on September 29, 2014.  She was in the 60th year of her religious life.  Sister Elizabeth was principal of Holy Name of Mary School from 1977 - 2005. Please pray for the consolation of friends, family and her community.

Reading is Rewarding!

Students were recognized for accomplishing their summer reading goals!

Be sure to check the School Calendar for all events at HNOM. In our effort to save paper, a hard copy will not be sent home with the children. Check the website for all information. Thank You.

Dear Holy Name of Mary School Families, Past and Present;

We are very excited about the fact that 2014-2015 will be our 75th year as a school ministry for the Holy Name of Mary Parish and the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Please see our calendar or call the office to see how YOU might join in our year-long celebration! We are VERY proud of our graduates and invite ALL graduates to contact our main office to arrange for a visit to the school to reminisce about YOUR days here at HNM- we want you to ALWAYS feel WELCOME to your alma mater!

With love,
The Staff at HNM

Our school day begins at 8:15 A.M. and In order for your child not to be marked late, they are to be participants in our school community prayer.
Now that we have a growing number of Nursery and Pre-K students with siblings in the upper grade classes, we now offer the families of these students the opportunity to bring your 3 or 4 year old with their sibling and they will be cared for in our morning session of BASE (Before and After School Enrichment) Program. If your child is new to our school and in our full day Nursery (3 year old) or Pre-K (4 year old) we also allow those children even if they have no older sibling in our school to come early and also go to our BASE, we have two adults with the children at all times in this morning session. The morning BASE is new and there is no charge for this upcoming year- 2014-2015; however, in the future the parent may be charged one hour for this service. 
All families are welcome to join us each morning.
REMINDER: It is NY State Education Law that when your child is absent you must call the school to report the absence. Upon returning to school your child must bring in a note explaining the reason for the absence(s). Sample forms are in the Health Office News Link on our web page. Thank You
