Letter from the Principal
Dear Holy Name Families,
In this year of the pandemic, and social unrest, Holy Name School is a safe haven for the children of Camden. At Holy Name School, the students are surrounded by a loving, and professional staff who teach them not only academics, but Catholic values. Anyone who visits the school can feel the family environment that is seen in the smiling eyes behind the masks.
The students were back in person on Monday, January 25, 2021, after having all virtual learning since November 7, of 2020. Parents still have the option of keeping their children home for virtual learning, but most of the student body is in the school building. The students have demonstrated flexibility, and resiliency during this difficult time, and have expressed how much they miss being in school with their friends. Parents are also thrilled to send the students back into the classrooms.
On December 1, 2020, Holy Name School received their Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools accreditation certificate. This accreditation process took the school three years to complete, and is the trademark of a high quality educational program. This was a beautiful legacy left to the school by it’s previous principal Patricia Quinter, who led the school through the long process.
Holy Name is very excited for Catholic Schools Week this year. There is a special event planned for each day. There is crazy hat day, a talent show, and our traditional Bingo game where all of the students could win a prize. Each class will have the opportunity to attend virtual mass at the Cathedral, and there is a Holy Name mask design contest. The winner will have their logo printed on masks for all the students.
Holy Name School is rich in tradition, infused with the teachings of Jesus, and a loving family environment for all who enter.
Mrs. Margaret Kent
