Supply lists for the 2020-21 school year are now ready. Please see the attached files below to find the appropriate list for your student.
Almost overnight, Holy Family School shifted from a normal school routine to a virtual classroom. Teachers, parents, and students worked together to overcome the bumps in the process to make the end of the school year a success!
In the slideshow below, we’ve highlighted some of the great things that happened in the last 10 weeks of the school year.
Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind.
At the end of each school day, Holy Family students from preschool to 8th grade, pray the Family Prayer that begins “God made us a family.” Through this prayer, our students, faculty, and staff are reminded daily of a precious God-given gift: our Holy Family school community. This extraordinary family extends beyond the classrooms, and includes parents, grandparents, parishioners, alumni, and supporters. Each person plays a unique and vital role in this family.
As we look forward to the 2020-2021 school year, the school theme will celebrate our Holy Family family in the Hawaiian spirit with the quote from Disney’s Lilo and Stitch, “Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind.” The Holy Family Ohana looks out for one another, encourages, listens, works together, laughs together, and walks as one towards Christ. These are the values we instill in our students. We are more than just a building or a school – we are an Ohana.
So, get your Hawaiian shirts and flower leis ready! It’s going to be an incredible year! We are so blessed to have YOU as a part of our #HolyFamilyOhana.
God made us a family.
We need one another.
We love one another.
We forgive one another.
We work together.
We play together.
We worship together.
Together we use God’s word.
Together we grow in Christ.
Together we love all people.
Together we serve our God.
Together we hope for heaven.
These are our hopes and ideals.
Help us to attain them, O God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
After an extensive search, Holy Family Catholic Parish is pleased to announce that Mrs. Amy Huber will be the next principal of Holy Family Catholic School & Preschool.
With 29-years of experience teaching and leading within Holy Family Catholic School & Preschool, Mrs. Huber is already a cherished member of our ‘Holy Family’ family. She brings a tremendous love and devotion to the mission of Catholic Education for our children, the Church, and the community.
Mrs. Huber has served Holy Family Catholic School & Preschool most recently as the Assistant Principal for the last two years. In that time, she has assisted with teacher professional development, NAFC School Corporation liaison for Special Education, RTI (Response-to-Intervention) coordinator, as well as assisting with the Preschool where she trains our youngest Eagles in their first steps to soar. Mrs. Huber is known as a competent, confident, and can-do person capable of stepping in wherever she’s needed most. As a graduate of Providence High School, Indiana University, and Indiana Wesleyan University, she is well qualified for this new leadership responsibility. No stranger to technology integration in her own classroom, she is leading the efforts for 1:1 integration for our middle-school for the coming year. She is dedicated to preparing each student with 21st-century skills and knowledge to be productive members of society. Mrs. Huber sets exceptionally high standards, morally and professionally, for herself and will do the same for those in our school.
Not only is the ‘Holy Family’ family important to Mrs. Huber, so is her own. She and her husband have three grown children, and this spring, welcomed their first grandchild. Mrs. Huber and her husband are active members of St John the Baptist Catholic Church, Starlight, IN. There, she regularly assists at Sunday Masses as a Lector and an engaged chairperson of the annual Strawberry Festival.
Holy Family Catholic School & Preschool Inspires Minds, Imparts Caring Hearts, and Instills Lives dedicated to Christ in all her students, staff, and community. Every child is challenged to achieve academic excellence, social and emotional maturity, personal self-mastery and sanctity through a solid Catholic Christian formation and education. We foster each graduate to embrace lifelong Catholic Christian values and virtues that will enable them to become a contributing member to the Church and the greater community.
We are excited for Mrs. Amy Huber to lead Holy Family Catholic School & Preschool, as we move into this promising new future, together.

Mrs. Amy Huber
The State of Indiana has lifted the embargo on school accountability grades, allowing schools to announce their grade based on Spring 2019 ILEARN scores. Holy Family 3-8th graders took the statewide assessment in Mar-May of 2019, and based on achievement (percent at or above proficiency) and growth over the previous year, enabled Holy Family to receive an “A” rating.
Congratulations to students, their parents and HFS teachers for this excellent mark of achievement! Students are currently preparing to put their best foot (and brain) forward as the 2020 ILEARN assessments are just around the corner…
