This week, we began going out to the Catholic Elementary Schools in the Diocese of Worcester to talk to eighth graders about Holy Name Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School with the goal of getting as many of them as possible to attend our Open House which is scheduled for November 6 from noon until two p.m. We always bring current students with us when we do these visits as they are the best ambassadors of our school, and nothing can match the student to student perspective when it comes to describing school life. We are extremely grateful to school principals and pastors for allowing us class time to come in and present.
To further publicize the Open House, we will be printing posters and lawn signs, and I encourage anyone who is willing and able to post or plant one of these in a well traveled area to contact Mr. Scott Anderson in our Development Department so that he can provide you with one of these promotional pieces. We have found that no publicity works as well as the grass roots efforts of our community members to spread the good news of Holy Name High School. We appreciate everyone’s efforts in doing this!
We also appreciate the generosity of those who will take part in this weekend’s Catholic Schools Appeal in all parishes. Please remember that if you would like your gift to go directly and solely to Holy Name High School, you should be certain to write Holy Name on your envelope. Last year, Holy Name received over forty five hundred dollars through this appeal, the most of any school not directly connected to a parish. We are extremely grateful for the kindness and thoughtfulness of our community members. Have a great weekend!
