From the desk of the President / Principal
I continue to give thanks every day for the blessings bestowed on Holy Cross High School. I need your help in proclaiming our good news!
- Camden County College has donated to Holy Cross High School a “gift-in-kind” of laboratory equipment and tables. Holy Cross High School will remodel Room 110 as a biology lab because of this generous gift over the summer.
- The Bernard L. and Florence A. Bernard Foundation has created a matching gift in the amount of $200,000 to be used as an endowed scholarship named the Ralph L. & Florence A. Bernard Foundation Endowed Scholarship Fund of Holy Cross High School. This matching grant is to last in perpetuity.
- A gift in the amount of $40,000 has been given to Holy Cross High School which is restricted as a mini-capital campaign for building improvements. This is the first of possibly five gifts over the next five years. Board member, Mr. Scott Shontz, has agreed to chair this first endeavor. The school will begin to replace the bleachers in the main gym.
- The first class of the Sapientia et Sanctitas Academic Societies was announced after the close of final grades for the first semester. Students with a final average of 96 or better in an academic area have been selected for this honor. The Academic Societies are: Saint Hubert – Mathematics Society, Saint Catherine of Alexandria – English Society, Saint Albert the Great – Science Society, Saint Thomas Aquinas – Social Studies Society, Saint Sebastian – Physical Education and Health Society, Saints James and Joan of Arc – World Language Society, Saint Catherine of Bologna – Arts, Business, and Technology Society, Saint Maria Goretti – Religion Society. You can see the list of members on our web site at http://www.holycrosshighschool.org/wp-content/uploads/Sapientia-et-Sanctitas-Academic-Societies.pdf
I would like to close by relating this act of Servant Leadership by three of our sophomore students. These students asked that gifts at their “Sweet 16″ party be given to our Special Olympics Club. These three Lancers raised over $1600 for a wonderful cause. This is one of the many reasons coming to Holy Cross High School every day is a pleasure and a blessing.
Wishing you a blessed Easter. May the Good Lord bless you and your family.
You Belong Here!
