*The faculty & staff at Holy Cross School contributed money at the beginning of the school year to create a set of Holy Cross Student Scholarships.  Each scholarship is $550 and was awarded to four second grade students and four fifth grade students as a tuition voucher that will be applied to the 2021-2022 school year.  This year four scholarships were given due to not giving any last spring due to covid. Student’s names were randomly drawn. These particular grades were chosen as they are transition grades at our school.  While the faculty & staff benefited with jean days on Fridays, our true motivation is to show our support for our families and students.  Congratulations to our 2nd grade students Avila Clark, Tyler McClintock, Isaias Ochoa, and Camila Vazquez and to our 5th grade students Ashtyn Blakey, Breckan Bonstead, Rianna Robertson, and Maria Venturi.
