Holy Cross Community:

Below are a few reminders regarding the car line and parking at Holy Cross.

In order to help with the flow of traffic and to allow as many people in the front drop-off area by N San Felipe as possible, we would greatly appreciate it if you would pull forward as close to the exit as possible when stopping.  By doing so, you will allow more cars to enter into the drop-off area and we will avoid traffic lines for entry into the drop-off zone.  You will see our sign which reads, “STUDENT DROP-OFF HERE”.  Please be sure to drop off and pick up your children as close to that area as possible.

If you’re picking up your child and they are not waiting in the line, please park or exit and come back around.

When parking on the street, please be sure not to block the driveway of any of the houses in the neighborhood.

When parking, please be sure not to park in a handicapped space unless you have the appropriate placard and/or license plate to do so.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.

Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.

Have a blessed week!

Holy Cross Community:

Mr. Andy Flores, Holy Cross teacher, travels to Dallas with his wife every weekend to help take care of his grandson, baby Drew, who is only a few months old and has been diagnosed with a rare heart failure disease called left ventricle non-compaction.

The bus fare alone averages $480 a month and they still need to purchase food and other items.

To help offset this cost Mr. Flores has special wristbands which read, “GET WELL BABY DREW.”  If you would like to support Mr. Flores and his family, we encourage you to please make a donation of at least $5 and receive a wristband to wear proudly around campus.

In difficult times such as this, our Holy Cross family support makes a great difference.

Thank you in advance for your consideration of this request!

Sophomore Students and Parents:

Please click on the link below for an PSAT class opportunity specifically for sophomores.  This will help your students get a solid foundation for the very important PSAT test they will take their junior year.  Remember that the PSAT is the test that qualifies students for the National Merit Scholar Program and if a student achieves this status college admission (and scholarship opportunities) are greatly weighed in their favor.
