Students must be in the proper school uniform.  This includes Grades 3-8 gym clothing as well.  Students that are not in proper uniform will have a note sent home.  The second time, the student will have to call hom for replacement clothing.  Remember all clothing must be purchased through Top Marks. 
The Girls Competitive Basketball Team
Would you enjoy being part of a lively Science Fair Event where enthusiastic students are proudly exhibiting their hard work?
Are you looking for a one-time, half day volunteer opportunity, rather than a long term commitment?  Then consider volunteering as an event or registration volunteer at the Holy Cross School Science Fairs to be held from April 14th-April 16th, 2020  from 8:00 a.m. to6:00 p.m. for Grades 4-8.

You will be able to sign up for 30 minutes to an hour shift to help students to set up projects, direct visitors and monitor the event, assist in tabulating scores and perform other tasks to keep the fair moving.  Please contact me at Holy Cross School if you are interested or if you have any questions.  I will be sending a sign-up sheet to interested volunteers as a next step.

 Thank you.
