DEWITT — Ted and Amy of 93Q (front row, center) visited Holy Cross School Jan. 30 to help continue its weeklong celebration of Catholic Schools Week. Holy Cross kindergarten through fifth-grade students participated in a hallway bulletin board contest showcasing what their school community means to them and focusing on the Catholic Schools Week motto: learn, serve, lead, succeed. Holy Cross sixth-grade students competed in an essay contest, impressing the judges with their prolific vocabulary. Ted and Amy were kind enough to help judge the competitions and award the winners. The first grade students won first place overall in the hallway contest, and Will Radford, a student in Ms. Kolinski’s sixth grade class, won the essay contest.
