Back to School - 2019

Dear Parents,

I am very excited to start a new school year with a brand new class of 3rd Graders.  This is the start of my 21st year at Holy Child Academy and I know it will be an exciting year filled with lots of learning and fun, too.  

I enjoyed meeting all of you at Back to School Night last Wednesday.  Please feel free to contact me this year with any questions or concerns you may have.  I look forward to a great parent/teacher partnership this year.

School Lunches provided by JPM Catering 
JPM will be providing whole, healthy, locally sourced food each day. Visit their website to set up your account.  Remember to order your child's lunch by midnight the night before to assure they will receive a lunch. 


∙ Homework is given to reinforce educational concepts that are taught during the school day.  Also, homework helps students to organize their time between other activities they may be involved in.
∙Homework will usually be given Monday – Thursday nights (occasionally Friday nights too).  It should take your child approximately 30 -40 minutes to complete his/her homework each night.
∙ Homework is posted on the HCA website daily.
∙ Homework will be collected and checked each morning and returned back to your child that day. If a homework assignment is not handed in, your child will receive a Homework Notification form. Please sign and return the form the following day. The missed assignment will be completed during afternoon recess time.
∙Please initial your child’s homework journal each night.


∙Tests will be announced in advance (usually 2 – 4 days) in order for your child to have adequate time to prepare for the test.
∙Tests must be signed and returned to school the following day.

Gym Uniforms

Children will come to school in their gym uniforms and sneakers on Days 1 & 5. In colder weather, they are expected to wear a Holy Child sweat suit over their gym suits. On days when we have liturgies, students must wear their school uniform and bring their gym uniform.
