Dear Holy Cross Parents,

A new scholastic year is right around the corner!  Holy Cross of San Antonio is looking forward to an enriching and rewarding year.  I am sending this message to familiarize you with a new extra-curricular opportunity available as part of the high-quality curriculum awaiting students this fall.

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing a complete education for the mind, body and soul.  We are also keenly aware of the positive connection between music and education.  To that end, we are proud to announce that students may participate this year in the Holy Cross Classical Choir.  Last year, we introduced the Classical Choir and were pleased by the student response.  This year, we are looking forward to even greater involvement and exciting opportunities.  The Classical Choir provides students the chance to collaborate, perform and build their musical knowledge in a setting that is supportive and inviting.  The ultimate goal and mission of the Holy Cross Classical Choir is to provide an outlet for students to extend their reach and impact outside of the school walls and into the community while at the same time shining the light and gaining recognition for Holy Cross of San Antonio.

Students participating in the Classical Choir will be expected to complete their regular classwork and maintain their grades in order to continue involvement in this engaging musical venue.  More information about this offering and how to get involved will be presented at the student orientation meetings in August.

May the remainder of your summer be filled with sunshine and blessings.

See you on the first day of school, AUGUST 12th!!
