Important Daycare Busing Information

Families who reside in the Central Dauphin School District with child/children who ride the bus to/from Holy Name of Jesus School are required to complete a “Child Care Provider Request” form EVERY YEAR if the child will be traveling to/from a daycare provider.  Daycare providers must reside within the Central Dauphin School District boundaries.

Daycare accommodations that include busing do not carry over from one school year to the next; therefore, families who will require day care busing again for the 2017-2018 school year must submit a new form by the end of this school year. 

If daycare arrangements change during the school year, please fill out a NEW form.  To obtain this form, contact the Holy Name of Jesus School Office at 717-657-1704, or use the link provided below. Forms should be returned to the HNJ School Office.

2017-2018 Asbestos Notification

The Diocese of Harrisburg provides our school with a Parent/Legal Guardian Notification each school year explaining the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) as it pertains to Holy Name of Jesus School.  Please read this document.


Sponsor An Ad

When your business sponsors an ad with the Holy Name of Jesus School, your business message reaches our entire community while simultaneously providing needed items to our students! 

Every year we look for businesses to help underwrite the cost of providing school folders for our students and envelopes for report card mailings. Our students receive these items at no cost to families because of advertisements provided by generous patrons.

If you would like to sponsor an ad, please print, complete, and return the Sponsor An Ad form to the school office.  You may also call the printer listed on the form directly.


Honors and Effort Awards

To achieve First Honors:   The student will have earned an A in all academic subject areas and a C or greater in all special subjects.

To achieve Second Honors:  The student will have earned an A or B in any combination in all academic subjects and a C or greater in all special subjects.

Honorable Mention:   This achievement is subject to the discretion of the homeroom teacher and is awarded to those students who are consistently doing their best.

To achieve overall honors for the school year, teachers also consider the student’s character development.
