From Mrs. Maggi: 

"I chose Holy Family School because of my children and because it is truly like a family at the school. The teachers and staff are kind, caring and very welcoming. Everybody is there for one another. You can see that the teachers & staff genuinely care about their students. In return, as a teacher, I can see the love that families have for their child that they are sending to our school. I wanted to be a part of this family and I am so glad for the opportunity."

Five Words to Describe Holy Family School:

  1. Family 
  2. Caring
  3.  Appreciative
  4. Character Building 
  5. Jesus
