COVID 19 PROTOCOLS UPDATED

We have updated the Flow Chart for People with COVID 19 Symptoms to reflect Defiance County Health Department updates. Please see the new chart at https://defianceholycross.org/wp-content/uploads/Flow-Chart-People-with-COVID-19-Symptoms.pdf 

EPIC FUNDRAISER OFF TO A STRONG START, MORE PARTICIPATION NEEDED

We are so grateful for the generosity of you, your family and friends! In just three days, we have already raised $6,600 toward our $60,000 goal. In order to achieve our fullest fundraising potential, we need every family to try to participate in collecting at least one donation for HCCS. The easiest way to do this (and for donors to give) is by creating a Facebook Fundraiser, or having someone create a Facebook Fundraiser on your child’s behalf. 

  • The first 25 non-HCCS family fundraisers created will raise an instant $100 for HCCS through a challenge grant funded by the Coressel Foundation. 
  • Students can write letters to friends and family. 
  • For additional forms and information go to https://defianceholycross.org/epicfundraiser/
  • If your child’s light-up prize malfunctions, please have them bring it to the office for a replacement. 

PMO MEETING THIS SUNDAY 

The next meeting is Sunday November 8th at 1:00 at HCCS. Every parent/caregiving is always welcome to participate in the Parent Ministry Organization. If you would like to become more involved, but able to attend the meeting, contact President, Kristen Wannemacher at ktwannemacher@gmail.com for ways to get involved. Thank you to all who are active members!
