Introducing Our School Year Theme: The Eagle in Us

Holy Family School is proud to be a Leader in Me School. Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader. This evidence-based approach empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. We focus on developing the whole child by:

🦅 teaching LEADERSHIP to every student,

🦅 creating a CULTURE of student empowerment,

🦅 and aligning systems to drive results in ACADEMICS.

There is a growing body of evidence that Leader in Me positively impacts academics. This should come as no surprise to those familiar with the research showing that effective social-emotional learning enhances academic achievement. When the social and emotional skills of students are developed, along with those of the staff, students tend to achieve higher academically. Moreover, Leader in Me specifically equips schools to focus and execute on academic growth targets through a goal achievement process called the 4 Disciplines of Execution, and by improving the instructional practices of teachers.

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 2021-22 school year, the theme will celebrate teaching leadership and creating a culture of student empowerment. “The Eagle in Us” incorporates the new Leader in Me Program, while celebrating how everyone can be a leader in their own way and together we can make a difference in our communities!

Our Holy Family Eagles look out for one another, encourage, listen, work together, laugh together, and walk as one toward Christ. These are the values we instill in our students. We are more than just a building or a school – we are a family.

So, get your spirit wear ready! It’s going to be an incredible year and we are so blessed to have YOU as a part of our #HolyFamilyFamily.
