The Week Ahead May 28 to June 1

Weather is Hot and our Flames are Cool!

Holy Spirit Families: We have had a short but wonderful week at Holy Spirit and look forward to another great week ahead.

It was a HOT week. Please send your children to school with a refillable water bottle, sunscreen and a hat. We want everyone to stay hydrated and continue to be healthy so we can learn and have fun. Also a HUGE Shout Out to Mr. Camara and Mrs. Silveira! Our custodians do so much at our school and this week they made sure that all of our Air Conditioning systems were in good working order. They make Holy Spirit a cool place to learn…LITERALLY!

Holy Spirit’s First Movie Night Led by Student Leadership was a Success!

The Student Leadership Team planned and organized a successful movie night that was attended by over 150 people. It was the first time we hosted an event like this at Holy Spirit and the students did a wonderful job. I was particularly impressed by how parents and student leaders worked together at the end to clean the gym up in 8 minutes! Wow! Thank you to everyone who supported the student leadership team and had a fun night out with your family. Also, a huge Thank You to Mrs. Ianni, Mrs. Hanley, Mrs. Lemos and Ms. Sartoretto for developing our student leaders and mentoring them throughout their journey this year at Holy Spirit. Our community is grateful for your efforts!

Kinbridge Community Sports Night HOSTED AT HOLY SPIRIT SCHOOL

Our parent council has partnered with Kinbridge to hold a WEEKLY Community Sports Night at Holy Spirit School! This is a huge win for our school and the community! There is a link to a flyer, but any 12 or older is welcome to attend. Children and Teens do NOT have to be a Holy Spirit School student, so if your child is friends with somebody who attends a different school, they can still participate together.

Our trial run will be for the month of June, but we hope to continue this community evening in the Fall starting in September. A HUGE Thank You to Ashley King, Amy Slack and Scott DeJong for working to make this opportunity a reality!

Starts This Thursday, May 31st from 6:30PM to 8:30PM. See Flyer for Details.
