Welcome back everyone! It’s wonderful to kick off another school year with another outstanding group of faculty and students, and we especially welcome those students, families, and faculty members who are new to the Holy Name community. We’re off to a great start, and I am extremely pleased with the level of dedication and diligence that all have brought to school everyday in spite of the very warm weather conditions.
I am thrilled to report that the new seats are being installed into the Joseph P. Burke Center for the Performing Arts as I write this. I have poked my head into the center several times today, and I am certain that everyone is going to impressed with the new look auditorium space at Holy Name. We are happy that we will be able to utilize this space for our Communion Breakfast sponsored by the Parents Association at 10:00 a.m on September 18th. We hope to have a great turnout for this “soft opening” and we welcome Father Flynn to say Mass and bless the space. All are welcome!
You will also notice our brand new power storage installation on the Holy Name campus. This should be completed by the middle of October; I am certain there will be more news on this to come. This installation will be the only one of its kind on the East Coast and will keep our school on the cutting edge of environmental and educational technologies. Our students will benefit from this power storage pilot program as we partner with Worcester Polytechnic Institute to analyze the efficiency of this installation. We are proud and pleased to welcome W.P.I. to the Holy Name campus, and we look forward to using this partnership to improve our STEM offerings.
There is no other school like Holy Name! We are blessed with wonderful students who continue to inspire those of us called to serve God by doing his work at his school. We are all very excited and optimistic about what this year will bring.
