Shuttle bus

Holy Cross High School recently purchased a 15-passenger shuttle bus to transport students to the school located at 5144 Dixie Highway.
Tim Weihe, president of Holy Cross, said in a phone interview last week that the purchase of the shuttle bus was a direct response to concerns from parents at an open house last year.

“The families said they really liked Holy Cross and wanted their children to come here but were concerned about transportation in the morning because of their work (schedule),” he said.

The shuttle bus picks up seven students at 7 a.m. at St. Gabriel Church. Weihe said the service allows the school to “attract more students from areas outside our standard drawing area.”

Shoe donation

Carleigh Hoeflich, a student at St. Patrick School, donated more than 200 new pairs of tennis shoes to children at Our Lady of Peace Hospital.
A news release from the hospital said that all Hoeflich wanted for her eighth birthday “was to do something nice for children receiving help at Our Lady of Peace.”

The nurses and staff at Our Lady of Peace held a “thank you” and birthday reception for Hoeflich Sept. 5.
Our Lady of Peace Hospital offers psychiatric services to people of all ages — from children to senior citizens.
