Letter to PARENTS

Dear Parents/Guardians,

May the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ be always with you!  I hope that you and your families are having a wonderful summer.  The staff of Holy Cross Catholic School is very happy that your child is returning to our great school and we are looking forward to a good and happy year!  We welcome all of our new students and families!

I am blessed and honored to be hired as the Principal of Holy Cross Catholic School. My husband and I have four wonderful children, one dog and two cats!

My educational experience includes working with the Archdiocese of Santa Fe for thirty-seven years—twenty –six of which has been with Catholic Schools.  I have worked as a teacher for thirteen years and as a principal for seventeen years.  I have also worked as Director of Religious Education and have been the First Grade Teacher at Holy Cross for five years.  My degrees are a B.A. in Elementary Education and an M.A. in Educational Administration before becoming Principal. I have been Principal of Holy Cross Catholic School for six years.  

I firmly believe in the importance, mission and philosophy of Catholic Education, the education and safety of all students, compassion toward others and the uniqueness and integrity of each human being.  I have a passion for working with God’s beloved children, their families, other educators and the community and have dedicated my life to this.

We have a great staff for our wonderful children and are looking forward to the new school year. 

May God bless you and yours always!

Sincerely in the Holy Family,

Mrs. Terry Ann Lopez
