After School Care

“To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love, For it is in giving that we receive. . .”
~ from The Prayer of Saint Francis

Holy Cross Catholic School is excited to announce that beginning in September 2018, we will be running the after-school program ourselves under the leadership of Mrs. Keola Morley.  Mrs. Morley is a former parent at the school and an active parishioner. Last year Mrs. Morley was an aide in the 2nd-grade classroom and in the upcoming school year she will be one of the aides in the PreK classroom.  She also worked for several years at St. Agatha's school, including their after-school care program, and is involved in many community organizations, including the Roosevelt High School PTA. Mrs. Morley loves children and is well respected by the teachers and staff at the school.  Mrs. Morley is working to hire additional aides for the after-school program to ensure high-quality care that is supportive and fun for students.
