Holy Cross Celebration, Catholic schools week

FEBRUARY 1 – 5, 2021

Beginning in 2018, Hoban recognizes Catholic Schools Week with a tradition called Holy Cross Celebration. The week's scheduled events and activities perpetuate spiritual growth, reflection and celebration of our Catholic identity through the lens of Holy Cross core values. 

The Holy Cross core value of Excellence is the chosen core value for the 2020-21 academic year. Each day is dedicated to exploring the value from a new perspective.

Monday, Feb. 1 – Excellence in history

  • Dress Down Day Theme: Decades Day
    All students can participate (those in the building and those who are remote learners). Those who dress up can tag Hoban (@hobanknights) on Instagram. All students who tag Hoban in their Holy Cross Celebration pictures on Instagram will be entered into a drawing for a prize.
