Friday - the last day at Holy Cross

Joyce and Clara enjoy their predawn coffee.
Scott's caught the photo bug!
Peter doing his stretches after his daily run.
Ah...there comes that sun!
Took the right walkway over the bridge this's rusting away. There are plans
for repairing the bridge but who knows when
they'll be's an election
year though so maybe some quick action?
Our last breakfast at Holy Cross...the
food has been amazing as always!
The wonderful kitchen ladies after Sandra
presented their thank you tip envelopes.
They do an amazing job feeding 450+
students, staff and volunteers on top of that!
Group picture up next! Thanks Freddy!
It's number crunching day in the computer room.
All those med files have to be back in the file
cabinet completed this afternoon!
Bob and Scott doing last minute scrounging of materials
for the closet. Only one new piece of wood needed!
Miss Clara having a little quiet time
in the breezeway after a busy morning.
John finished the display rack for the Women's
sewing group. It's high enough so folks can see
it through the windows when they come
pick up their children--these ladies are covering
all the bases. Mr. Lorenzo was back today.

There was a lot of wrap up work today and odd jobs. Clara, Ginny, and Kathy spent a fair amount of time in the library sorting and shelving books. Jean finished up the medical files as the rest of the Dr. sheets came in and completed the heights and weights data base....only about a dozen kids we didn't get due to absence. Jim and others returned to San Mateo to finish up home visits. A few students who had been absent earlier were seen by Joyce and Virginia. John did tours for some folks who dropped by.
Mr. Coba loved his new sports
equipment shelves!
Now he can really find out what he has!
and the shelves are certainly strong enough!!
Great job Bob and Scott!

It was Cheap Sale day after school. They sell
clothing etc. that has been donated to the
school as a fundraiser for Holy Cross. The
teachers set it up this time.
and the community comes!

It's a wrap for another year at Holy Cross School. We accomplished a lot and met our goals. More importantly, we were able to renew and expand friendships in this Holy Cross and San Mateo community. There were frustrations, hot days and tired bodies from lack of sleep and physical labor. But the rewards far outweighted all of that as we experienced the hugs, the healing and the daily miracles that are the story of Holy Cross School. Thanks be to God for the opportunity to serve this school and community.
As we were leaving school, Mr. Freddy was
dumping sand for the football team to spread
to fill the holes in their practice field.

Following showers, shopping, liquid refreshment and packing we all headed back to the Blue Water Grill for our final dinner.
Paul tests the Chilean wine.
and many enjoyed the special with locally grown carrots.
It was a wonderful end of the week.
