HOLY CROSS LUTHERAN SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT:
Helping Children Grow in Faith, Knowledge and Service
2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR THEME:
Life in Jesus bears the fruit of the Spirit.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."
FROM THE TEACHER:
The Seventh and Eighth Grade students at Holy Cross are our school leaders. They are quality young adults who have shown their leadership abilities. They are willing to serve their Lord by serving others. We honor them as children of God willing to be who God made them to be. Each student is a gift from God to Holy Cross.

All homework assignments are given in class, and your student is responsible for getting them, completing them, and turning them in on time.
In order to get your student ready for high school, no credit will be given if homework assignments are turned in late. If special circumstances arise, please let me know by sending a note with your student, calling me, emailing me, or seeing me in person before school starts.
