Grandparents’ Day

On Friday, October 26th, we will be having a Grandparents’ Day at Holy Spirit School from 8:15 A.M.-12:15 P.M. to recognize the importance of our heritage and the sacrifices our grandparents have made for this generation.

Our students’ grandparents have made it possible for our school to be what it is today, so we would like to invite them to campus to experience the power of Holy Spirit’s community with us! We will be sending invitations to grandparents, but we need your help in obtaining mailing addresses for the grandparents of your children.

If you are interested in inviting the grandparents of your child to this special event, please contact our principal, Pat Kalahar at:
