September,   2017

Dear Holy Name of Mary Families and Guests,

Happy Feast Day!  On September 12, the Church celebrates the feast of the Most Holy Name 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 2017 – 2018 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. Stoney for arranging a breakfast on Friday morning to support our new Nursery and Pre-K parents, as they left their children, in the very capable hands of our teachers, for the first time.

On Monday morning, we participated in a memorial service commemorating the 16th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.  We remembered all who died, all who served and continue to serve and all who mourn. We pray for peace.

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 – Wednesday, September 13 at 10:00 am in the church
  • Raffle and Welcome Back Barbeque – Saturday, September 16 from 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm in the playground and gym
  • National Junior Honor Society Inductions – Tuesday, September 19, at 7:00 pm in the gym
  • The first PTL meeting -  Wednesday, September 20 at 7:00 pm in the faculty room
  • Valley Stream Community Fest – Saturday, September 23 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Rockaway Ave.

All are welcome!

My door is always open. Please come and see me with any concerns or questions you may have, I am here to help!

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Pamela Sanders
