Dear Holy Name of Mary Families,
Happy Feast Day! On September 12, the Church celebrates the feast of the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This feast teaches us how useful and advantageous it is to invoke her holy name in our needs. The name Mary, by which we honor the Most Blessed Virgin means "Star of the Sea". It is, says Saint Bernard, very well given to her, because she is indeed a star which enlightens, guides, and leads us to a harbor in the stormy sea of this world.
Welcome to the 2016 – 2017 School Year! We are off to a great start. Thank you to all the parents/guardians that visited HNOM on “Back to School Night”. We are a partnership and we appreciate your support. Thank you to Mrs. Carey for arranging a breakfast with the principal and parents on Friday morning where a lot was discussed and our new Nursery and Pre-K parents received support, as they left their children, in the very capable hands of our teachers, for the first time.
On Friday morning, we participated in a memorial service commemorating the 15 th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. When the students went back to their classrooms, they wrote cards and notes of appreciation to the first responders in our area who serve and protect us daily.
It is always exciting to start a new school year, filled with new adventures and challenges. I look forward to sharing this year with all of you; working to continue the tradition of academic excellence and spiritual growth.
Some things to look forward to in the month of September:
Opening of school Mass – 8 th grade pin ceremony – Wednesday, September 14 at 10:00 am in the church
The first PTL meeting, Wednesday, September 14 at 5:30 pm in the Cafeteria

Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Pamela Sanders
