Welcome (back) to Holy Redeemer for the 2018-19 school year!
Most years, the first Friday of the school year, Parent Club hosts a school wide, free, back-to-school BBQ with hamburgers and veggie burgers, fixings, and chips. We usually have soda for sale and the Spirit Store.
This year due to the Eagle Creek wildfire, we rescheduled the BBQ to Sept. 7 – the first Friday night of the school year, 5:30-7:30 pm, on the playground.
All are welcome!
Tips for a successful BBQ:
- Bring a picnic blanket and, of you think of it, water bottles (we have water jugs available for refilling).
- Show up by 7 pm so there’s time to make more burgers if we need to.
- Take the time to meet new families – especially if you are a returning HR family, please make the effort to reach out to unfamiliar faces. We easily forget how it can feel to be the newcomer (scary, lonely, sad) to our community amidst all our own joyful reunions happening at the start of a new year.
To order from the Spirit Store, download and complete a 2018-19 spirit store order form, put it in an envelope with payment, and leave it in the office marked for SPIRIT STORE with your child’s name and grade. Spirit store orders are place the last school day of each month and orders are sent home mid-month.
Holy Redeemer Spirit Store is now offering a GREAT new addition! You can now order a golf-style, breezy polo, with embroidery, for $18.Sizes range Youth XS-XL & Adult S-3XL. Short sleeve only, at this time. A sample is available at the front office if you would like to check it out.
Every year during Staff Appreciation week, Parent Reps organize their classrooms to bring meals and treats to the staff, and provide a token of our appreciation to individual staff members.
Here is the schedule for the week of staff appreciation, May 7th – 11th.
Monday – Pre K
Tuesday – 6th grade
Wednesday – 1st grade
Thursday – 4th grade
Friday – 2nd grade
You should here from your Parent Rep about your classroom’s involvement.
We are keeping the staff gift a secret (so I’m not going to post online)! Ask your Parent Rep for details.
The first of three Lenten Fish Fry evenings is Friday, March 9th from 5:30-7:30 pm in the cafeteria!
We are more in need of volunteers tomorrow night than for the next three Fridays. If you can volunteer, please contact Dana Wazny.
The Fish Fry will also take place Friday, March 16th, and Friday, March 23rd! The events are Parent Club-organized fundraisers for the school.
We eat fish on Fridays because during Lent, most people over age 14 are prohibited from eating meat. Note that for the past few years, we’ve offered vegetarian entrées as part of the Fish Fry for the veg(atari)ans among us who always abstain from meat.

At the Holy Redeemer Auction you’ll definitely have fun — and that’s regardless of whether your attending the auction or volunteering. Any time you come together with so many friends, that’s inevitable.
The fun doesn’t end auction night though — you’ll have a chance to bid on so many experiences, auction party nights, travel packages, front row seats at the December Christmas program almost a year away — the fun just keeps going on and on.
Also at the auction, the prize winner is drawn of the raffle — that winner gets a $3000 travel voucher or a free year of Catholic school — wha?? That fun continues long after the auction ends — through June 2019.
Finally, if you bid on may of the art projects or themed baskets that each classroom produces, the fun may literally never end. A single game night basket will supply with you with new board games to try for-ever. A student art project will hang beloved on your wall till your kids become grandparents and on and on.
