Mark your calendar for our largest fundraising event of the school year, the Aloha, Hawaiian Nights at Holy Child Gala Saturday, March 11 at 6:30 p.m. Volunteers are still needed to help with this year’s Gala. Assistance with mailings and emails would be terrific! There are additional jobs still available. Please contact Parents Association President Janelle Lynch to find out how you can help at this year’s Gala.
A new tradition that began last year at Holy Child is the Mothers Morning Out which is a special morning for moms and their Holy Child daughters. Please save the morning of May 4 on your calendar for this special date.
Please read the weekly emails from your homeroom parent rep. Please get involved. There’s something for every parent to participate in to make a difference. Set an example for your daughter by participating in the many opportunities that are available.
Be involved at Holy Child: as a volunteer, a committee chair, or a behind the scenes helper, something for every interest is offered. Every role, no matter how big or small, ultimately helps to enrich each Holy Child student.
The next Gala meeting is Thursday, January 12 at 8:15 a.m.
Ongoing opportunities all year
Parents assist and serve Hot Lunch Monday through Friday, from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Sign up for once a month, once a week, or as often as you would like to see your daughter and her friends while helping serve hot lunch.
