Holy Cross offers many activities that enhance our students’ educational pursuits, broaden their knowledge of our world, and strengthen their relationships with each other and our community. Collectively, our students make an impact: Our Crusader Groups—teams made up of students across grade levels—meet twice monthly and engage in projects and service work. Our school hosts an annual Veterans’ Day program which draws veterans and families from our school and the surrounding area, and for decades, Holy Cross has been the only grade school invited to contribute choral music to the annual Veterans’ Day celebration at the State Capitol. Each year, our students present the Christmas story through instrumental and vocal music and recitation, and we also host an end-of-school-year showcase we simply call “The Big Event.”
Our seventh and eighth-grade students study and travel to our nation’s capital, while field trips for students at all levels range from farm tours and nature center visits to performances at Madison’s Overture Center.
Students in our upper grades also have the opportunity to participate in a math meet, spelling bee, visual arts fair and musical performance competition coordinated through Lakeside Lutheran High School in Lake Mills, as well as a forensics meet with area Lutheran grade schools.
In addition to these co-curricular activities, we also offer many extracurricular opportunities, including competitive sports teams and all-school celebrations.
