What kind of fundraisers does the school participate in?
Holy Cross families support several different fundraisers throughout the year including some "painless" fundraisers. SCRIP (gift certificate rebate program), collecting Box Tops for Education, Spartan labels, and Campbell soup labels, and Market Day (food program) are a few of the fundraisers offered.
Are there organization parents can participate in?
Yes. Holy Cross has a Home and School Association (HASA), an Athletic Association, and a School Board. All meet on a regular basis. More information can be obtained about these organizations by contacting the school office.
Do you have a dress code?
Holy Cross students will wear uniforms to promote intellectual and spiritual growth in a safe non-competitive environment. Our Pastor, Principal and School Board believe uniforms provide a positive academic atmosphere during the school day. Uniforms consist of navy blue bottoms and a white or light blue shirt. We appreciate parents/guardians support of the uniform dress code, which is enforced by the principal, faculty and staff. Holy Cross also offers a "uniform shop" where new and/or gently used uniforms can be purchased at a reduced cost.
What time to I drop off and pick up my child?
Students are to be in their classrooms at 8:00am. Doors open at 7:00a.m. for before school care. School is dismissed at 2:45p.m. For those students who use after school care, they will be escorted by staff to the Smith Center located next to the school.
Do you offer Before and After school care?
Yes, before and after school care is offered. Students may arrive at 7:00 am for a $1.00 per day fee. After school care is offered from 2:45 pm to 5:50 pm for a $7.00 per child fee. A multiple child discount is offered for After school care for those families with more than one child attending the program.
Are we required to do volunteer hours?
Each family is encouraged to do 10 hours of volunteer service to the school. A parent or legal guardian may fulfill these hours.
