The Holy Name School choir consists of members from second to sixth grades. It is an afterschool program meeting weekly throughout the year preparing selections for special school liturgies. This ensemble experience exposes students to the importance of music ministry for worship services and how to prepare a piece to lead the congregation.
In the past, we have sung in the community for ground breaking ceremonies, a library program event, Christmas Caroling and at the Fine Arts Center. It is our hope that students may continue in the music ministry of Holy Name Parish in the Middle School Youth Band and Youth Worship Band featuring high school and young adults singers and musicians.
At Holy Name, we strongly believe in the connection of our middle grade students with our elementary students. One of the ways we foster that connection, is by offering a student mentor program. 8th grade students have the opportunity to submit an application to be considered as an 8th grade mentor. If selected, these 8th grade students are paired with a K-5 mentee. Mentee’s are selected by either their teacher or by parent request. Any student is eligible to be a mentee.
Mentors then meet with their mentee twice a month and build a connection through activities both students enjoy. Some examples are coloring, lego building, reading, and games. This program is highly rewarding for our mentee’s and our mentor’s as well.
Holy Name School yearbook is a student driven product with the guidance of the faculty advisor, Holly Farina. The yearbook staff is open to 8th grade students. Staff members take pictures, seek businesses to sponsor the yearbook, and help digitally create the yearbook. Each staff member is assigned to 5 to 10 pages of the yearbook. Staff members meet once a week in January and February after school and have the option to work from home via the online Plicbook program.
Seventh and Eighth grade students have the opportunity to join a service organization. Sponsored by the KY YMCA which promotes leadership and service. This organization requires students to actively campaign, give speeches, and vote for officer positions. Officer positions include President, Vice-President, 7th Grade Representative, 8th Grade Representative and Chaplain.
