Book Fair

Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most.

We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fairs and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved and encourage kids to read every day.

Our Scholastic Book Fairs are a part of exciting reading events that bring to school a wonderful selection of fun, engaging, and affordable books kids want to read. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more, and like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.

Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time. Since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her child’s education.

Sincerely,
Ms. Maria Talavera
Book Fair Chairperson

Christian Service Hours

“We should learn how to give…but not regard it as an obligation, but a desire.” – Mother Theresa

A Catholic Christian life is one of service to others, where we show love and kindness to everyone, even to those who do not treat us well. We can serve others in many ways, and we should ensure that we use every opportunity that we can.

Jeans for Jesus

Once per month, Holy Family Grade School students are offered the opportunity to wear jeans to school. By donating $2.00, students are showing their support of Christian fundraising efforts while enjoying a non-uniform day.

Jog-a-Thon

The Holy Family Grade School Jog-a-Thon is a PTO fundraiser held in the spring. This fundraiser is a healthy and energizing way to support our school. Relatives and friends support our HFGS students by sponsoring them as they jog laps with their classmates to current and oldies radio tunes. Students who jog the most laps win a trophy, and all students are treated to lunch following this great morning full of fun, friends and excitement.

Movie & Popcorn

What’s better than a bag of popcorn and an entertaining movie? Nothing! Holy Family Grade School students support many clubs and activities by attending this fundraiser twice per year. For a nominal donation, students enjoy fellowship and popcorn while enjoying a family friendly rated movie in our Grade School Auditorium. Proceeds from this fundraiser support Academic Decathlon, Concert Chorus, Cheer, Sports, and more. See you at the movies!

Santa Shop

For almost 2 decades now, Holy Family Grade School has been holding a “Santa Shop” for the students. It is an opportunity for them to learn about Christmas giving. The PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) spearheads this fundraiser and provides small items to be purchased for low prices. The students practice thoughtfulness and common sense, buying the appropriate items for the right people (a ladies’ hat for their mother, an electric razor for their father, etc.). They then practice their math skills and how to apportion their money. Most importantly, it gives a chance for younger ones to buy a surprise present for their parents, who might have no other way of shopping.

School Dances

School dances perform a much larger purpose than just providing an opportunity to dance. School dances and kids activities also offer opportunities to teach appropriate social behaviors, gain confidence, while building school support.

Holy Family Grade School holds two-dance fundraisers a year, St. Patrick and New Year’s Bash for the entire student body, from Transitional Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.

The auditorium is almost transformed into a real ballroom dance area with matching glittering and disco lights being set up by the student council. Strobe lights also add to the ambiance. When students enter the auditorium, they are provided with glow in the dark bracelets, rings, light sticks and other fun accessories to add to the overall dance experience.

Our master of ceremony is Mrs. Nelson who formally opens and closes the dances, as well as leads the dance competitions amongst the students during half time. The loudest clap determines the winner of the dance competition.

With regards to music we play during the dance event, we try our best to select appropriate music for the students. Students may suggest/request their own favorite music to be played during the dance provided it is appropriate. The dance committee always has the final decision.

The students and faculty really enjoy both dances during the school year.
