Greetings from Mr. Bormann
Blessings to you and your family!!!! Last Saturday Holy Family Catholic Schools held their annual Circle of Celebration to support our schools. Thank you to those who attended. Your generosity allows us to continue our mission of forming disciples of Jesus Christ through Catholic educational excellence.
Congratulations to the directors, cast, and crew of the Mazzuchelli spring musical, Singin’ in the Rain, Jr.!!! People who have seen both casts cannot believe the talent we have.
