First Day of School Routines

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer vacation.  Since June, Holy Name has grown!  We have new students and new staff (teaching and non- teaching) that has joined the HNE community.

On the first day of school, September 5, 2017, we are asking the students to proceed to the following areas indicated below, where they will find Class Lists for each grade written on chart paper and taped to the school wall.  We ask students to find their name written on the appropriate class list and line up accordingly in your assigned class- please follow teacher direction.          We will have support staff, i.e. Ms. Leggio, Ms. Fata, Mme Ghirardi, Mme Ricco, Ms. Sansone, who will have copies of class lists with them so please feel free to approach them and find out which class your child is in.

We ask that parents make space for all to view the class lists so that all parents can assist their child in finding their names on the class lists. It can get quite crowded and difficult for the students and teachers to find one another. Please be considerate of this.
