Employment Opportunity-Classroom Teacher Needed
Holy Family Elementary is a Preschool-6th grade parochial school in Hays, KS with an enrollment of approximately 375 students. HFE is seeking a classroom teacher to inspire students in faith formation and academic excellence in all discipline areas. The successful candidate is a practicing Catholic in communion with the church willing to instruct religious curriculum, capable of effectively managing a classroom of 20-25 students, and expertly prepares, instructs, and assesses students in multiple educational content areas.
A successful candidate will have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education or be certified (or able to obtain certification) in Kansas. A Master’s degree will command a higher salary, as will teaching experience.
Teachers at Holy Family Elementary are expected to develop caring relationships with students that allow them to demand excellence. Holy Family believes a loving firmness and virtue growth will allow students to develop a growth mindset that will further aid in their success as they progress through school.
Experience and/or interest in a wide variety of technological tools is a plus. Holy Family Elementary uses the Google platform for calendar and electronic mail communications, overhead document cameras, interactive whiteboard software, digital textbooks, and PowerSchool for gradebook management as well as student mobile digital devices with Google and Microsoft Office platforms. Students will learn 21st Century skills in a variety of platforms.
Holy Family’s uniform dress code, behavior expectations, emphasis on faith formation, and a strong academic learning environment provide a school climate desired by many educators. If you are a serious educator ready for the opportunities that a Catholic school can offer, please consider applying with a cover letter, resume, and three references to Principal Rachel Wentling at email@example.com.

Safe Environment Program (CMG)
The Safe Environment Program has taken the place of the former VIRTUS program and training. All families received information on the program with details on how to do the training. If you, your spouse, or a grandparent / other guardian plan to volunteer in the classrooms whether it be driving for field trips or helping in small groups where you will be supervising students, you must complete this training — you canfollow the link here for directions and to begin the training. It will have you type in general information about yourself, and when it prompts you for a background check, be sure to select “YES”, as we must have that on file in order to clear you for volunteering. Once completed, if it gives you the option to print a certificate, please bring this in as well as your drivers license and vehicle insurance so that we can make copies for our records. This program is good for 5 years of volunteering. Thank you for your compliance and if you have any questions, please contact Tracy Perrett in the office at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
Prayer to St. Joseph for Rain
Blessed Saint Joseph, God chose you to be the husband of the Virgin Mary and the foster father of Jesus. You cared for the Son of God as your own son and taught him a trade. Because you were so close to him, He will not refuse anything you ask. Intercede for us in our great need. Pray for the blessing of rain. We are grateful for the moisture that we have received, but the land needs more. Ask God to water our fields and gardens, to fill the rivers, streams and lakes, and to bless our crops and livestock. Help us to live close to Jesus and Mary, as you did, strong in faith and good works, caring for one another. Amen.
Mary, Mother of God, and spouse of Joseph, pray for us.
St. Isadore, patron of farmers and farm life, pray for us.
