Holy Cross High School is proud to announce that the Holy Cross Drumline has accepted an invitation to participate in the 2018 Bayside Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.
The Drumline shares an important distinction with the parade: they are both in their first year of existence. Holy Cross Director of Music Greg Mulzet created the drumline this past fall by purchasing instruments, hiring acclaimed percussionist John Ling as instructor/writer, and holding school-wide try-outs. The 10-member ensemble is made up of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and practices once a week amid the students’ busy schedules of schoolwork and sports.
The students are excited about their first appearance in the community!
The parade will begin at 10 AM on March 24th and run along Bell Boulevard between 36th and 41st Avenues.
Tuesday’s basketball triple header scheduled for February 13 will be moved from our gym to Bishop Loughlin in Brooklyn.
Freshman: 4 PM
Junior Varsity: 5:45 PM
Varsity: 7:30 PM
Flushing, Queens, New York — During its January 2018 meeting, the Holy Cross High School Board of Directors voted unanimously to hold the annual tuition at $9,200. It is a goal of Holy Cross High School, sponsored by the Moreau Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross, to respect the call of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops that a Holy Cross education remain as accessible as possible.
Mr. Edward Burns ‘84, Principal, observed, “As a parent of a Holy Cross student myself, I appreciate our board’s efforts to make annual tuition rates as predictable as possible. Our families are the beneficiaries of insightful leadership from the Holy Cross board.”
Holy Cross High School, a Catholic college preparatory school in Queens, New York, educates the hearts and minds of young people following the educational and spiritual vision of Blessed Father Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross.
Holy Cross embraces students who reflect social and economic diversity. The school strives to instill within each student a desire to identify and fully develop God-given talents while pursuing excellence in all endeavors.
Holy Cross’ varied academic programs and activities nurture and promote spiritual, intellectual, creative, social and psychological growth and development. As Blessed Father Basil Moreau wrote in 1856, “Education is the art of helping young people to completeness.”
