Holy Spirit School offers education for your child up through 6th grade.
The Holy Spirit School Faculty and staff share the conviction that every child can learn to lead a life of service. We carry out a great mission to serve God by building knowledge and character in our young people.
By teaching the Word of God, we prepare our students to follow a path of virtue, compassion, and sacrifice for the rest of their lives. And by insisting on high standards for academic achievement, Holy Spirit School has a competitive, yet friendly and fun-filled learning atmosphere.
“It takes a ‘family’ to raise a child.” The Holy Spirit “extended family” is comprised of pastors, administration, faculty, staff, parents, and volunteers. There are many opportunities for involvement in academics, special events, lunchroom, recesses and much more. Everyone is welcome!

We have had a busy but exciting month of September at Holy Spirit School. I would like to thank everyone that made it out to our Back to School Bash on September 14th. Special thanks to the Holy Spirit Knights of Columbus for supplying the food, Sean Hansen for the use of his music equipment, the SFO for providing the bouncy houses and cookies and the SFO officers help coordinating and carrying out the event. What a great way to kick off the year and welcome our new families Break out the poodle skirts and blue jeans and tshirts! The 50’s Dance will be held on Saturday, October 7th from 6-9 p.m. at Holy Spirit. There will be a DJ, food, games, silent auction and kids’ raffles. A sign up genius was recently sent out seeking parent volunteers to work 1 hour shifts. Please consider signing up and sharing your time and talents to help make the event successful. We wrapped the month up with our 3rd annual Grandparents Day held on September 28th. Special thanks to the Grandparent Day Committee (Mrs. Breckenridge, Mrs. Wagner, Mrs. Boldt, Mrs. Waldner, and Ms. Hammer) for coordinating the event. Father Chuck for praying Mass for us, The Marquette Council Knights of Columbus for the use of their bingo cards, SFO for providing the refreshments and the entire school staff working together to make it a special day. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet many grandparents and from the feedback I received from the grandparents as they left they really enjoyed the day as well. October is the month of the Holy Rosary. During the month of October, Holy Spirit staff and students will be praying a decade of the rosary during our prayer and pledge time on Friday mornings at 7:50 a.m. Parents are welcome and invited to join us.

These forms should be returned no later than Oct. 12th. During the month of October our focus virtue of the month is responsibility. We will be stressing the importance of responsibility at school and in the classrooms. I will be asking the children for examples of ways they’ve demonstrated responsibility at both school and home at our prayer time on Fridays. As a system we are really stressing the importance of school attendance. I would like to remind everyone that our school day begins at 7:45 a.m., (students arriving after 7:45 a.m. are counted tardy) The school day ends at 2:45 p.m. I’ve included a note on attendance later on in this newsletter.
