HFCS Update from Leslie Southerland, Principal

Greetings Parishioners,

I am thrilled to be writing to you as the principal of Holy Family Cathedral School, and pleased to report on all of the exciting things that are happening at our school this year.

As many of you know, we had several teachers retire last year. However, we were blessed with tremendous individuals to fill their posts.  This year we are happy to introduce:

Elizabeth Browne as our Pre-K 3 teacher.  Liz is a member of Christ the King parish, and she has been working hard this summer to ensure that our income 3yr olds have a great year.

Christie Coughlin as our 2nd Grade teacher. Christie comes to us from Notre Dame University. Christie is working toward her Master’s Degree in Education and is anxious to meet her new students.

Alicia Detter as our 3rd Grade teacher. Alicia is a member of the parish of St. Mary, and is a seasoned educator. Mrs. Detter’s class will be out of this world…you may have to see her room to understand what I mean.

Dorothy Wire as our 5th Grade teacher. Mrs. Wire is a long time member of our parish and has many years of experience as a teacher and RE instructor. Mrs. Wire’s warmth and compassion will no doubt help our 5th graders make the transition from elementary to middle school status with ease.

Kathryn Pickens as our middle school Math and Science instructor, Kathryn grew up in the Oklahoma City area and graduated from the University of Tulsa. For the last year Kathryn has been working with troubled inner city youth, and displays a strength of faith and character not frequently seen in a person of her age.

With a strong faculty and exciting programs in place to meet all our students’ needs, we are looking forward to a great year at Holy Family Cathedral School. We thank all of you for supporting us, and we invite you to drop in anytime to see what you have made possible for the families we serve. It is truly my privilege and pleasure to be a part of the Holy Family community. May God richly bless you, and keep you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Leslie Southerland
