As a kid, do you remember the last day of school?
Do you recall singing the hit song written and performed by Alice Cooper, ‘School’s Out‘?
School’s out for summer… School’s out forever… School’s been blown to pieces.
Well blown to pieces is a bit extreme.
I heard that today is the last official day of school at Holy Name.
I mean really the last day.
They are changing the name to St Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy in September!
A lot of people who visit the blog attended HNS as kids. We all have some sort of memory or two inside of us whether positive or negative.
I’m sure there’s a good reason behind this move as they merge with I.H.M (Boy that will make for a really good CYO boys basketball team).
One good thing is the church name is staying the same.
Raise your glass in honor of the one of the best catholic schools ever!
Have a drink with me and think back to some of your fun times at H.N.
A toast, to everyone who attended the grammar school at 241 Prospect Park West, Holy Name of Jesus.
