On Thursday, April 23rd, our Holy Cross Band and Color Guard team participated in the 77th Battle of Flowers Band Festival which was entitled “This Land is Your Land” and featured musical tributes to San Antonio, Texas and America with the grand finale featuring a patriotic salute to the USA complete with fireworks!
This year’s festival returned to where it all began at SAISD’s Alamo Stadium! Students from more than 30 high school bands from San Antonio and surrounding areas joined forces to present an entertaining musical evening that is one of Fiesta’s oldest and most popular events. The festival is known nationwide as one of the oldest and largest events of its kind dedicated to promoting and supporting the performing and visual arts among young students. Congratulations to our AWESOME band and color guard for participating in such a historic event!!
Come support our HC Band and Flag Team at this year’s Battle of Flowers Band festival (Battle of the Bands). The Holy Cross Booster Club has tickets available for $9 each for Thursday, April 23rd.

A FEW SPECIAL REMINDERS FROM STUDENT COUNCIL REGARDING SPIRIT WEEK
SPIRIT WEEK starts on Monday, October 20th and ends at Homecoming next Saturday, 10/25.
Each day of the week students may dress in a different theme. The themes are as follows:
MONDAY: MYTHOLOGICAL MONDAY/MYTH MONDAY
Students may dress as any mythological (or non-real) character. Students may not wear cut and/or revealing clothing. If shorts are part of the costumes, students may wear leggings as well.
TUESDAY: THROWBACK TUESDAY
Wear clothes that are from any past era (roaring 20’s, hippie 60’s, etc.) as long as they are not from the 2000’s! (If a student attends school wearing regular clothes that are from the current fashion trends, they will not be in spirit dress and therefore will be asked to change into their uniform.
WEDNESDAY: WACKY WEDNESDAY
Wear clothes backwards, inside out, upside down, or right-side wrong! Crazy socks, mismatched colors, and a funky hat. All of these are permissible. Shorts that are knee-length are allowed as long as they are not basketball or athletic shorts.
THURSDAY: HOMEROOM WARS
Each homeroom is in charge of their theme for the day and must dress accordingly. The homerooms will be judged by the administration on creativity and participation. The winner of the competition will be rewarded with a free spirit dress day. (Since each class will come in something different, please be sure to get with your homeroom teacher to discuss the details)
FRIDAY: BLUE AND GOLD SPIRIT DRESS
This is a regular spirit dress day and the spirit dress guidelines must be followed. Students may wear any Holy Cross t-shirt and jeans. No open toed shoes or torn jeans will be allowed.
* All costumes and outfits must abide by the Holy Cross dress code and meet the exact criteria of the themed day. If you have a question about your outfit, please see an administrator prior to wearing it. Students who are not in compliance of the dress code will be asked to change or sent home.
HOMECOMING PEP RALLY
Our Homecoming pep rally will be held on Friday, 10/24 at 2:15 PM in the Holy Cross Convocation Center.
All are welcome!
LOCKER BOARD DECORATIONS
* As a reminder, the PTC will be selling locker boards on Sunday, 10/19 from 2-4 PM. The school will be open at that time for students and parents to come in and display the locker boards before we begin our spirit week!
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: HOMECOMING DANCE
Tickets to the Homecoming Dance are available for purchase in the business office. Tickets are $15 a person and are only available pre-sale, not at the door.
DRESS CODE GUIDELINES FOR THE HOMECOMING DANCE
Taken directly from page 18 of the Student Handbook, please follow the guidelines listed below:
Boys are to wear tuxedos, suit or sport coat, but at a minimum, they are expected to wear semi-formal wear, such as slacks, nice shoes, and a nice shirt and tie. Torn clothing is not permitted. All students must be clean shaven.
Girls will wear semi-formal attire or formal gowns or pantsuits. Strapless dresses/tops and Spaghetti straps are not permitted.
The following will not be permitted:
If the attire is questionable, students are encouraged to show their evening wear to Ms. Calderon beforehand to determine if it is Catholic school appropriate. The determination of the appropriateness of student dress and grooming shall rest with the principal and administration.
Students and their dates who are non-compliant with the dress code will not be admitted to the event. No refunds will be given for dress code infractions in which result in students being asked to leave.
