Welcome to Holy Infancy School!

Students who attend Holy Infancy live in surrounding neighborhoods and cities. Transportation is provided through local school districts.

Our Mission Statement

At Holy Infancy Catholic School, each child is a member of our family.  We educate our children to their highest level and nurture them based on Jesus’ Gospel Values. We celebrate and respect our multiple cultures and the religious beliefs of all. Our children learn, strive, and grow to reach God’s plan for their lives.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome Back!

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start
a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing family. I welcome and value your
positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to continue working with
you and your children.

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is
already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new
families, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious
maintenance staff and volunteers have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning and making repairs
to our building. And, our much-appreciated PTO is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer
opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We are indeed a joyous and caring
community with the common goals of nurturing spiritual, responsible, caring students and promoting
high-level learning.

New Staff

Each year brings positive change, including a few additions to our staff. We are delighted to welcome
our new teachers, Mrs. Martini (3 rd Gr.), Miss Martin (4 th Gr.), & Mrs. Young (8 th Gr.), who have great
experience from our other diocesan schools, as well as Ms. Cheema (7 th Gr.) who has taught in other
Catholic and Convent Schools outside our diocese, and Mr. Jorge our new FACTS Manager.


Communication remains a top priority here at Holy Infancy. I want to continue to help make
communication between home and school a positive learning experience. Communication between
school and home is a critical element to a child’s success in school. We understand that when school
leaders, teachers, and other school staff respect parents and share information with them openly and
frequently, parents are more likely to trust and work with the school to support their child’s learning.
We will make this a top priority.

ALL of our staff works hard to make school a positive experience for ALL students. Holy Infancy is
eagerly looking forward to enriching your child’s life. Thank you for understanding that it can take a
few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new grade, workload, and teacher.

I especially thank all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring
that Holy Infancy remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward
to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.
Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.

Warmest Regards,

Ms. Manasse
