Hello Holy Child Families,

With three weeks left in the school year there are still many questions as to what school will look like in September. Please know that we are planning for many different possibilities and, when September comes, the safety of your children will be our number one priority.

We know it has been challenging and we thank you. Here is what you need to know for the weeks coming up:

  • Student belongings pick-up – During the last week of June (June 22, 23, and 24) we are asking parents to schedule a time to pick up any personal belongings your child still has at the school. This will also be the time to return any borrowed Chromebooks, library books and/or textbooks. Please see the information in the attached Spurs Weekly to schedule your time.
  • Progress Reports - will be sent home digitally on Wednesday, June 24th. More information to come.
  • School Playground – our school’s playground remains closed. We anticipate it opening soon and signs will be placed on and around the park when it opens.
  • School Closing Liturgy – we will be posting our closing liturgy online during the last week of school. We encourage you to watch and share this with your families.

As always, please contact us at the school if you have any questions or concerns.

In these times we all are looking for a little bit of peace. I believe we can find that in prayer. Please pray; pray for peace, pray for hope, and pray for everyone.

Prayer For Peace

Oh Great Spirit who dwells in the sky,
lead us to the path of peace and understanding,
let all of us live together as brothers and sisters.
Our lives are so short here, walking upon Mother Earth's surface,
let our eyes be opened to all the blessings you have given us.
Please hear our prayers, Oh Great Spirit.
- Native American Prayer
