      • Holy Cross students in grades 5-7 attended a presentation to learn about opportunities to host an exchange student and participate in a mission trip.
      • Nicole Fangue, a former teacher at Holy Cross, spoke to the students as a representative of BONDING, which is a Catholic program whose mission is to unite families, students, schools and communities in a common faith to enrich each one involved. This is accomplished by establishing friendship bonds and showing respect for values. The program serves students ages 10-15 and their families.
      • Our middle schoolers received information about hosting exchange students from Guatemala. Fangue also shared her experience doing summer mission work in Guatemala. 
        • For more information on how to participate in the exchange program, please see the Bonding website, catholicbonding.org

        • Seventh Graders Kick off the Year with Swimming Social
          • As part of their “Continuing the Journey” program, our seventh grade class kicked off the year with a student/teacher/parent social.
          • Throughout the year, seventh graders have the opportunity to bond with their brothers during their last year of middle school as they prepare to “Continue the Journey” into high school at Holy Cross.
          • Last Friday they kicked off the year with a student/teacher/parent social held at Lakeside Country Club.
          • The students got to swim, play tennis and other games, and bond with one another and their teachers. Parents were invited to join them at the end as well. We’re looking forward to a great year with many more “Continuing the Journey” activities to come!
