We have a month of school under our belts, and the school year continues to be running smoothly. With the wonderful staff we have, the supportive parents and the hard-working students, I am not surprised that the year is going so well.
As our school numbers have increased so have the numbers of students attending After Care. This year in addition to the staff member we have added Miss Melissa Riggle. Melissa is a Senior at Nerinx Hall and the daughter of Mrs. Carolyn Riggle who is our Art teacher. Melissa helps with snack, crafts, the homework table or anywhere assistance is needed. She has been a great addition to our After Care team.
Speaking of After Care, the staff informs me they had to dispose of many games and puzzles since they were missing so many pieces. If you have any gently used books, games, puzzles, crafts, art supplies…that are looking for a new home, we would love to have them. Please send any donations to the school office, and we will see that they make it to the After Care supply cabinets. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
I have a gentle reminder about parking on the Mason lot (lower lot near the soccer field). In the morning there should not be any parking on this lot since this forces the children to walk between moving cars that are dropping off. Frankly, that is just not safe for our students. In addition, I would like to remind you that at afternoon pick-up you should not be parking on the yellow lines along the neighbor’s fence line. This area is for the students who bike or walk to school. If you park in this area, the children are forced to go around your car and then are crossing into the driving lanes. Please follow these simple rules to keep our students safe. Thank you so much!
We are now entering our third year of being a Virtue Based Restorative Discipline (VBRD) school. Our theme for the year is “Holy Habits-Changing Hearts with Love.” Love will be the virtue that we base many of our school-wide activities.Read More
Parents In Partnership
Holy Redeemer children are blessed with a parish school devoted to their academic, spiritual, and social development. And thanks to devoted HR parents, Catholic education continues to thrive in our parish! We wish to thank the 92 Holy Redeemer school families anonymously donating $53,103 to last year’s “Parents in Partnership” Campaign.
As a result, our annual tuition increase was once again below 2.5% rather than an otherwise necessary 10%. Thanks to HR’s unique tradition of keeping tuition manageable by using these voluntary tax-deductible donations, young families continue to join our school community and existing families choose to remain.
If you would like to learn more about Holy Redeemer’s rigorous curriculum, tour our renovated facilities or inquire about further tuition assistance, please contact Principal Pam Galluzzo at 962-8989.
Gratefully Yours in Christ,
Your HR School Board
You might not have noticed if you haven’t driven through the parking lot, but the last of the chain link fence around the field has been replaced by a more permanent and attractive wrought iron (actually steel) fence. The Holy Redeemer Athletic Association took up and paid for this project. They decided since the fence on the Lockwood side looked so nice, they wanted to make that gift to the parish. This is just one of the many things HRAA has done for the good of the parish. It was their initiative and money that led to the recent renovation of the athletic field. Besides that, they largely pick up the expense of outfitting and maintaining the gym. Of course of all of this is done for our children who play CYC sports: soccer, basketball, volleyball. There are literally thousands of children who over the years have participated in our parish- sponsored sports programs. Many of these are our parishioners, but others are simply children in the neighborhood who are seeking this kind of wholesome athletic involvement. All of these services are provided by a huge group of volunteers who do everything from selling concessions, coaching the teams, tending to uniforms and supplies, setting up and tearing down for contests and many, many others tasks. While most of our families are able to pay the modest entry fees for our sports programs, HRAA is always ready to assist those who may have a financial need. The parish is grateful to the group for all that they contribute to the wellbeing of our youngsters and the health of the parish.

Holy Redeemer Parish School of Religion (grades 1-8) acts as a support for the students and families of the parish as they live out their Baptismal call and give witness to the Good News in word and deed. It is the desire of the program to incorporate the students and their families into the faith life of the parish community.
