Library Gift Club – Sacraments

Many students have received the Sacraments of Communion, Reconciliation, and Confirmation. Please remember your family and friends can dedicate a book in honor of the sacrament your child received. Please download the form and send it into the school main office. I have purchased some new books and it would be wonderful to have bookplates in them.

Thank you

Holy Family Lunch Program

I have been involved with the Holy Family Lunch Program for the last 14 years at many different capacities.  I have ran the program for the past 6, it is time that I hand over the responsibility to someone else.   Mr. Giordano and I are willing to sit down with anyone who is interested in discuss taking over the program.  We can go over the several different options we have tried in the past and all the vendors we have used.  It is up to the next volunteer whether the program remains the same or is changed.  If you are interested please email me at

Please remember if there is no volunteer, there is no lunch program for the children.

Holy Family Regional School received a thank you note from Gloria Schreiber, Executive Director of the Life Center of Long Island. Our student raised $2,243 from the baby bottle campaign. “The monetary aid is very important to the continued success of our efforts to help mothers, fathers, and their pre-born children.”

Congratulations to all students and the National Junior Honor Society for doing a wonderful job and supporting these families that choose life.

Re:       Mr. G’s ELA Book Club

 I am writing as a follow-up to my presentation of our school’s New York State Common Core evening. In an effort to promote reading and writing in our school and home, it is my hope to implement a new school club, Mr. G’s ELA Book Club. The purpose of this club would be:


  1. To promote parental awareness of new English Language Arts Common Core Standards for reading and writing;


  2. To encourage and enhance a working partnership between home and school for improvement;



  3. To introduce children to literature beyond textbook (fiction, non-fiction, historical, biographies, etc. in various subject areas);


  4. To create a true desire to read  with an emphasis on reading to learn, not just to read; and



  5. To offer incentives for students to read and write at home – “Dress Down Day” passes will be offered.

 On March 12th at 7 PM in the Bishop McGann Room, I will offer a workshop for parents (parents only) to further explain the Book Club. While all students in grades 3-6 are encouraged to participate, it would benefit the student if a parent attends the presentation. The meeting will provide a list of books for parents/ students to read, an assessment package, and ways to improve writing skills.


If you are planning to attend, please fill out the form below and return to the main office by Friday, February 27, 2015.

Dear Pre-K through 7th grade Parents:

Happy New Year! I can’t believe we’re already looking ahead towards an exciting 2015-2016 school year. Our in-house registration for the next school year is approaching. I realize we’re collecting this information earlier than usual, but in order to plan accordingly we need accurate enrollment numbers to determine tuition. There will be a $50.00 re-registration fee for each student returning to Holy Family Regional School.

This year we will begin to re-register our present students in grades Pre-K through 7 starting January 20th. We would appreciate all registration by Friday, January 30, 2015. To provide an incentive for registering by January 30th, there will be no application processing fee. A $25.00 per student application processing fee will be in effect as of February 7, 2015.

We hope you will be returning to Holy Family Regional School next year. Please indicate your child’s placement below for September 2015 and return the tear off and payment to your child’s teacher by Friday, January 30th. If you should need a new registration form for Pre-K or other siblings you may request one from the office.

Thank you for choosing Holy Family Regional School for your child’s education, and for your continued support!

Sincerely yours,

Mr. Anthony Giordano

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.
