Dear Parents,

On Thursday, January 31st we are hosting a School Choice Rally. This will be held in the Holy Cross Convocation Center from 6:30-7:30 pm. This is a required meeting for all Holy Cross families and we request that you invite your friends to attend so that they too can learn more about the benefits of School Choice. School Choice is an issue that has been considered in the past but this year we have a real chance of affecting a positive outcome. Please make plans to attend this meeting. Brother Stanley Culotta will present along with a special guest speaker, Mr. Allan Parker, President of The Justice Foundation.

We look forward to your support!

Holy Cross of San Antonio received an anonymous donation in order to enhance the English Department’s instructional use of technology.

“The school is deeply grateful for the gift which has allowed us to put iPads in the English classroom,” said Ms. Elizabeth Eguia-Garcia, Vice President of Advancement & Public Relations.

“Holy Cross received a grant last year from the Kenedy Memorial Foundation which allowed us to put iPads in the Art Department,” said Ms. Eguia-Garcia. “The students will greatly benefit from the donation which made the new iPads available to the English classes.”
