Welcome to 5A!!
June 3, 2019
This week is exam week. Remember to study for final exams! Have a fantastic week! We are almost to the finish line. I want to thank all the parents for sending your children to Holy Family this year. I have truly enjoyed working with them and seeing them grow throughout the year. They have been a fantastic group; I will definitely miss them next year! This year has been a difficult year for my family, and I want to thank all of your for your support, kindness, and compassion. It really did help give us some peace. I hope everyone has a relaxing, safe, and enjoyable summer with your family. Thank you, again, for making the 2018-2019 school year a special one!
