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 HFCS as President.  Mrs. Jackie Iwan will be assisting me as Vice President.  Mrs. Molly Twiford is filling the role of secretary and Mrs. Amy Miletich 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.  The welcome packet that was sent out from the PTO included a permission slip to charge your FACTS account for the registration fee of $20.  Please fill this form out and send it in to the school office.   Please attend meetings, introduce yourself, and let us know what you’d like to see happen in the future.  

I’d like to thank all who came out to the meet and greet last week. It was nice seeing familiar faces and meeting all of our new families. I hope you’re all as excited as I am for the upcoming school year.

I’d like to invite everyone to our PTO meeting and Back to School Night on September 6th. I’m excited to share with you all of the fun events we have planned. Please remember that each family is required to volunteer 10 hours of time to HFCS.   

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

Box Tops News

Box Tops Update

The 5th graders are still in the lead for the 3rd quarter box tops contest but the 8th graders continue to be close behind. The winning class will win a No Homework Day. The 3rd quarter contest ends this Friday, April 13th.

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 2017-2018 school year goal is to collect 10,000 box tops to earn $1000. We have collected 4,555 so far this school year. Every box top counts! Thanks for your continued support!

Sincerely,
Jennifer Prasarn
