News

  • Holy Cross School Celebrates Academic Achievements
    • Holy Cross School was proud to celebrate the academic achievements of its students, including two National Merit Semifinalists, 22 students achieving a score of 30 or higher on the ACT, 26 students and recent graduates achieving a 5 on the Advanced Placement test, 3 students achieving AP Scholar distinction, and 3 students achieving AP Scholar with Honors.

 

  • Holy Cross Gathers to Celebrate the Exaltation of the Cross
    • Thurs the 14th, the Holy Cross school community gathered to celebrate the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross with a middle and high school liturgy. The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, celebrated every year on September 14, recalls three historical events: the finding of the True Cross by Saint Helena, the dedication of churches built by Constantine on the site of the Holy Sepulchre and Mount Calvary and the restoration of the True Cross to Jerusalem. In a deeper sense, the feast also celebrates the Holy Cross as the instrument of our salvation.  As our founder Basil Moreau stated, Crux Spec Unica – the cross our only hope.

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist Alex Martin ’77 Visits Journalism Classes

  • Our journalism classes had the privilege of hearing from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Alex Martin, who graduated from Holy Cross School in 1977. Martin is an editor at the Wall Street Journal and was recently inducted into the Manship School of Mass Communication Hall of Fame at LSU.
  • Alex engaged the students in an informative and culturally relevant discussion on the day-to-day operations of a large newsroom, as well as the importance of news literacy – how to discern fact from fiction in the digital age – and its vital role in maintaining an informed and educated electorate.
  • We thank Alex for taking the time to come share insights with fellow Holy Cross men!

 Holy Cross Eclipse Viewing Letter & Permission Form for Grades 5-12

  • On Monday, August 21, all Holy Cross students in grades 5-12 will have the opportunity to attend a school-sponsored viewing of the partial solar eclipse. The eclipse is expected to peak around 1:30 p.m., and this is the approximate time we plan to take the students outside for the viewing event.
  • In preparation for this event, the science department has ordered eclipse glasses for each student and staff member. All students will be instructed on the proper use of these glasses in their science classes this week, and they will view a short safety video on Monday morning during their first period class, which is when the glasses will also be distributed.
  • Because we will be transitioning classes, going to lunch, having recess and dismissing during the expected eclipse time, students will also be instructed on safety precautions that must be taken when they are outside.
  • All students will have the opportunity to participate in this viewing event. But make sure you turn in your permission slip.

Hello, welcome, and enjoy all the News, events and more involving Holy Cross New Orleans.

Events for the week of 5/8/17 through 5/14/17

  • Hello and welcome
    • 2 weeks left!!! Visit us for the show notes and links at www.tigertalk.us
  • News
    • Tiger Band Members to Play for Pride of Acadiana
      • Two senior members of the Holy Cross Tiger Band auditioned and will be playing for the Pride of Acadiana Marching Band at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette this fall. Cade Cheramie and Sean Murphy, who are both flute players, received letters with scholarship offers from the university. Congratulations to both of these young men for continuing their love of music as they graduate and attend college

 

  • Seniors are Reminded of Their Younger Days
    • As our seniors prepared for their senior luncheon and prom last month, they received a little reminder from the past. For five of her seven years here, Mrs. Clark has had freshmen and sophomore boys in English II and English II-Honors write a letter to their future selves. These letters are read by no one, and they are sealed and locked away until three-to-four years later when she hands them back out to the now seniors.

Mrs. Clark says, “This is one of my favorite times of the year (and a little bittersweet) as I can remember the boys they once were as I’m handing this letter to a now grown young man. I love watching the boys get so excited over something they thought I had forgotten about! Some laugh at their younger, less mature version; some are moved by events they had chosen to discuss in their letter, but had not revisited in years. Career goals, college choices, music, and girlfriends have changed over the years, but the brotherhood that these students have created will last a lifetime.”

 

  • Holy Cross 5th and 6th Grade Track and Field Wins NOLA/Ivy League Championship
    • On Saturday April 29, the 5th and 6th grade track and field team won the NOLA/Ivy League Championship meet with 107 points, defeating second place Lusher Charter by a 21-point margin.  Holy Cross relied on its depth and talent to simply overwhelm the competition, winning five total events. In the 7th and 8th grade division, Holy Cross had only six athletes, but still placed very well in all events entered, including NOAL/Ivy League Champion Sebastian Williams in the 800m run.

 

  • Seniors Sign for Baseball at Loyola
    • Three Holy Cross seniors–Trace Messina, Mickey Toscano, and Cole Nalesnik–signed on to play baseball with Loyola University in New Orleans next year during a ceremony held in the Student Center on May 1. Congratulations to these young men as they continue their education and their love of baseball.
  • Coach Eric DesOrmeaux Named Louisiana Coach of the Year
