Virtue of the Month - February

Feb-PietyWeb       Piety

The quality of being religious and reverent.  To be truly pious, we strive to do what is pleasing to God.  As we are about to start Lent this month, let us remember to be pious.

SYMBOLS: Kneeling to pray because it shows our reverence for God and that we are devoted to him.  The Dove because it symbolizes the Holy Spirit and piety is one of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

  • We go to church on Sunday's and when we do, our focus is on Jesus.
  • We do what God asks - follow the 10 Commandments and Beatitudes.
  • We pray, fast and, give alms during Lent.
  • We accept what God has given us in every situation.

Welcome to Holy Family's Website!

From the Principal

 I hope you find it interesting and it answers questions you may have about the school. Holy Family is an amazing school built on the foundation of Catholic teachings, religious formation and academic excellence.  Our school offers Pre-K through 8th grade classes.  It is unique in that we have teacher aides in the preschool, kindergarten and first grade classrooms. There are two resource teachers available to help students that may need some extra help. Spanish is offered from K-8.  We have an amazing Junior High where we prepare students to succeed in High School.  In Junior High, each student has one teacher per subject.  Students have locks on their lockers and semester exams are given to help them prepare for High School.  Students are required to perform Christian ministry hours to teach them the true meaning of stewardship.  From our priests, faculty, staff and administration, we welcome you to Holy Family's website!  Please let us know if you have any questions.


Mr. Trevor Seivert, Holy Family Principal
