Welcome to 5th Grade!

Teacher: Mrs. Shelly Breidenbach 


From Mrs. Breidenbach:

"Every single day I get to pray with my students. My job is just not a job; it is a gift. It is a precious gift that God gave to me so that I could grow more in my own faith by teaching the children theirs."


Five words to describe Holy Family School:

  1. Jesus
  2. Eucharist
  3. Community
  4. Love
  5. Prayerful
