Services & Extra Curricular Activities
Holy Family School offers many after school activities that provide the students an opportunity to live in the spirit of giving. Enriching both spiritual growth and the relationship they as students and as a school we build with the surrounding community.
Students in grades 5-8 have the opportunity to become alter servers. The primary role of the altar server is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass. This is done through specific actions and by setting an example to the congregation by active participation in the liturgy (hymns, responses, etc.), by looking alert and sitting or standing at the appropriate times.
Servers carry the cross, the processional candle(s), hold the book for the priest celebrant when he is not at the altar, carry the incense and censer, present the bread, wine, and water to the priest during the preparation of the gifts or assist him when he receives the gifts from the people, wash the hands of the priest, assist the priest celebrant and deacon as necessary.

The patrol’s job is to remind students of safety rules learned in the classroom and to guide them in safe crossing and bus passenger procedures. Patrols receive instruction in guidelines and procedures during their training.
Student Council members are elected from each class yearly beginning in fourth grade. We encourage our students to run for student council as a way to experience the democratic electoral process. Student Council members participate in a variety of projects through out the school year, both school and community service related.
