Holy Family Catholic School on the Catholic School Spirit Radio Show! Listen to our broadcast
Holy Family Catholic School (HFCS) was founded in 2009, as a combination of two parishes: St. Joseph School (Addison) and St. Charles Borromeo School (Bensenville). HFCS provides an excellent and challenging Catholic education for pre-school through 8th grade students in the Addison, Bensenville and Elmhurst areas.
Holy Family Catholic School is a diverse community working together as a vital part of the Catholic Church. We strive to grow in our relationship with God and each other by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ through religious instruction, faith development and academic excellence.
This month in the First Grade classroom we have grown in our relationship with God in a multitude of ways. One way is through prayer. The students have learned how to pray the Sign of the Cross to the Blessed Trinity and have learned the difference between asking and thanking prayer.
We have also learned that God is the Father of all creation. Throughout this learning the students have identified unique talents God has blessed them with, as well as show thanks for the wondrous world he has created. Through this wisdom the students have acquired the knowledge to carry out God’s will by showing kindness and respect to his gifts of creation. One way they did this was through a video podcast. Together the students created posters and a video to send to sick children in the hospital. We also incorporated this learning in Science, creating dioramas of animals in their habitat.
We will continue to strive and grow in our relationship with God as the year progresses.
Through our partnership with Afterschool Enrichment Solutions, we are proud to offer a NEW Let's Build It- STEM Engineering Club for grades 1-6! Registration forms are available on School Speak and in the school office.
