*The faculty & staff at Holy Cross School contributed money at the beginning of the school year to create a set of Holy Cross Student Scholarships.  Each scholarship is $500 and was awarded to two second grade students and two fifth grade students as a tuition voucher that will be applied to the 2023-2024 school year. Student’s names were randomly drawn. These particular grades were chosen as they are transition grades at our school.  While the faculty & staff benefited with jean days on Fridays, our true motivation is to show our support for our families and students.  Congratulations to our 2nd grade students Clara Diehl and Reagan McLaughlin and 5th grade students Joe Fravel and Arianna Preston.

*Hurry!  Make sure that your child’s spot is secured for the next school year by completing the online registration! There is a link to register on the bishopheelan.org website.
