School Cents is an EASY way to help Holy Cross School earn up to $2,500.00. Please bring in your Christmas shopping receipts from Pacific View Mall as we will earn double points in January 2017. Earn 5x the points at Disney Store and Build-A-Bear Workshop for all purchases in the month of January.
This year’s flu season is upon us. Flu activity in our school is associated
with prolonged fevers. Please make sure your child is fever free for a minimum of 24 hours before returning to school. Healthcare officials advise that anyone over six months of age is recommended to get a flu shot. Let’s keep our students and families healthy in 2017!
Reminder, HCS collects Box Tops on an ongoing basis. Don’t forget to send them our way! Thanks!
