Dear Parents:

On October 7th, the Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary, we will begin our Prayer Book for our students and their family prayers.

Every student will have the opportunity to write in the book by the end of the year.

Every home room will list the student of the week to write in the book.  It will be posted on the home room teacher’s class page.

I encourage all parents to discuss the prayers with their child.  Students may write prayers for their teachers, family members, friends, neighbors, country, and/or world.  I’m sure there will be some for family pets as well.

Please keep it to a sentence or two.  Students may write it at home with parents and copy it into the Prayer Book.

Thank you,

Mr. G.


In recognition of All Souls’ Day (November 2nd), Holy Family Regional School will join together for a special Prayer Service on Monday, November 3rd at 9:30 AM in the Gym. All school families and parishioners from all the parishes are invited to attend.

During the prayer service students, parents, and parishioners will have the opportunity to remember deceased family and friends in a special way through our Library Gift Club. Donated book(s) will be presented to the celebrant and the name(s) of the commemorated person(s) announced. Students will present first followed by school families and parishioners. More than one book may be presented; however, each donator will only be called up once at which time all names will be announced.

The school will purchase the books in advance. A bookplate will be placed in the books, stating the name of the deceased and the name of the donor. Students are asked to say a prayer for the deceased as well as the person donating the book.

Daily Announcements

Dear 7th and 8th Grade Parents,

 The National Junior Honor Society has been a long standing tradition at Holy Family Regional School.  The National Junior Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle school students. It serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character.

 We will be continuing our tradition and chapter of membership in NJHS, however, with the changes in our curriculum and rubric grading system, we are currently reviewing our criteria for membership.  As we move forward to outline our new criteria, we will prepare new packets for students who meet the criteria.  We expect to have the new criteria finalized in early October.  The next step will be notifying the students who meet the criteria. The 7th and 8th grade teachers will then meet with those students to explain what the expectations are, and to answer any questions they may have.  We anticipate our induction ceremony to be in mid November. 

Thank you,

 Mr. G.
