Dear HFCS Parents & Guardians,

Welcome back!  As I look at the calendar, it’s hard to believe that summer is over. While students have been on vacation, the PTO has been busy planning for the upcoming school year.  I am looking forward to a great school year and pray for continued blessings from our Lord.

For those who are new, please allow me first to introduce myself and the rest of the PTO parent volunteers.  I, Jacki Bauman, am honored to be serving in my second year at HFCS as President.  Mrs. Jackie Iwan will be assisting me in her second year as Vice President.  Mrs. Molly Twiford is filling the role of secretary also for a second year, and Mrs. Sara Ham will be helping as our Treasurer.  We are looking forward to a fun and exciting school year with lots of family friendly activities for all to join in on. 

We are always open to suggestions and would welcome anyone who wants to volunteer to help make PTO events successful.  Please attend meetings, introduce yourself, and let us know what you’d like to see happen in the future.  

The PTO hopes you had a relaxing and fun summer vacation. We are looking forward to a great school year. We feel so blessed to have such a dedicated faculty, supportive families, and terrific kids. This is sure to be the best year ever!

Be on the lookout for fun events and plenty of volunteer opportunities. Together we can make Holy Family the best private school in Northern Virginia. 

If at anytime you’d like to reach the PTO, you can email us at pto@holyfamilydalecity.org.  I look forward to getting to know you better at the upcoming events.  

God bless,
Jacki Bauman

Executive Board

President – Jacki Bauman

Jacki is happy to be serving our school as PTO President for a second year.  Jacki is married to Ryan Bauman, who also volunteers as chairperson for the Falcon 5K.  All four Bauman children attend Holy Family.  Ella Rae is a 5th Grader, Jackson is a 3rd Grader, Lillia is in Kindergarten and Crawford is in Mrs. Bowen’s Pre-K class.  This year, Jacki is looking forward to lots of fun activities.  As always, Jacki personally invites you to all PTO events often so that we may come together as a school and grow as a family!

Vice President Jackie Iwan

Jackie grew up in Ireland and moved to the US 16 years ago. Due to her husband Chris’ military career, her family has moved 7 times in 15 years, but now we call Virginia and HFCS home.  Both of Jackie’s daughters are in school here – Chloe in 8th Grade and Kiera in 4th Grade. She is looking forward to a fun and fulfilling second year as Vice President of our PTO.

Treasurer – Sara Ham

Your PTO treasurer this year is Sara Ham. Sara is a mom to 7 kids, 6 boys and 1 girl. The youngest 4 are all students here at HFCS, Isaac (7th), Rex (5th), JonJon (3rd) and Lani (1st) the oldest ones are High School and College aged. This is the second year Sara’s children are at Holy Family as students, but her family’s 6th year as active parishioners. Your kids may know Sara as a substitute teacher. Sara is excited to be a part of your PTO—Sara and her fellow board members are amazing women! Her hope for this year is that collectively we will use our time and talents to make HFCS awesome for our children, faculty and staff!

Secretary – Molly Twiford

My name is Molly Twiford, and I am your PTO Secretary again this year. My husband Larry and I have 2 boys, Wyatt in 2nd Grade and Logan, who is 5 years old. I am so excited about all of the great family events we have planned for this year! I would really love to see more school pride, interaction, families, friendships, unity, and participation to make our school and PTO thrive this year and beyond! I always have an open ear for how you think we can help make our school the best!

Box Tops News

Box Tops Update

Congratulations to Von Elegido (3rd grade) and Aidan Holycross (8th grade). They are the winners of the box tops summer contest. They each brought in over 100 box tops. Please go to the School Office to receive your prize.

The 1st trimester box tops contest has started. The class that turns in the most box tops will win a no homework day. Here are a few reminders as we start the new contest:

-Please remember that expired box tops are not accepted.
-Please remember to include your child’s name and grade when placing box tops in the collection box in front of the school office so that their class can get credit for the submission.

Our 2018-2019 school year goal is to collect 10,000 box tops to earn $1000. Every box top counts! Thanks for your continued support!    

Kind Regards,
Jennifer Prasarn
Box Tops Coordinator
