A Great First Week Back Flames!

We are officially back Flames and it was a wonderful first week. We have had some new families join our community and we are really excited about all of the great things that are starting up soon. For those families new to Newswire, this is our primary vehicle for communication with parents. We don’t send out traditional paper newsletters, as many of our families prefer the news to come directly to their phones. Usually we send this out each Sunday evening to ensure you are informed of ‘The Week Ahead,’ but we were experiencing some technical difficulties logging in outside of the school for the first time this school year. We will have it sorted out before next Sunday. We are all really excited to be back as a Holy Spirit family and look forward to partnering with you this year.

Please Complete All Cash Online Permission Forms

An essential part of any successful start up is when we complete the necessary paperwork to safely operate through the year. Essential forms such as your permission for your child to walk to church or for us to celebrate your child’s success with a team photo or even things like paying for your child’s school agenda is completed through cash online. Please take a few moments to complete this annual task to ensure your child’s year is off to a great start.


Hot Lunch Orders

Many students choose to participate in our hot lunch program. Each Wednesday we have a different vendor and every Friday is Pizza Day. Please do not feel obligated to participate in every hot lunch offering that we provide. However, when you choose to use the service, all of the proceeds go directly to programs that enhance the educational experience of all students at Holy Spirit School. All are welcome to participate when it works for your family.


Strong Start Volunteers Needed

Holy Spirit School depends on a large number of volunteers to support our youngest students as they learn how to read. The Letters, Sounds and Words program is unique as it was designed to be easily implemented by volunteers in schools, including those with little to no previous experience working with children. Mrs. Thornton and Mrs. Rose are coordinating this program and would appreciate anyone interested in participating to contact them.

Please Don’t Wait To Get Your Volunteer Police Check

Holy Spirit School is a thriving community because of our incredible parent volunteers. We wanted to ensure everyone was invited early to participate in the life of the school and be prepared with a volunteer police check. Please see the attached letter below describing the simple process to get things rolling. We look forward to partnering with old friends and families new to the Holy Spirit community. All are welcome to participate!
