Holy Family Catholic School Principal Spotlight

We are so blessed by dedicated and talented leaders such as Principal Peterson! Join us in thanking her for her commitment to Catholic Education!

Let’s learn a little bit about Principal Peterson:

Q: Principal Peterson, why do you choose to work for GRACE/Holy Cross Catholic School?

A: I chose HCCS even before I was a mom. We attended a day school Mass (my husband and I) and we saw the sense of community and the larger family feel when we were there. Fr. Tim Shillcox was the priest and I felt like he was speaking to me – that’s what I was looking for. All of our children went here as three-year-olds. I started subbing and then took the job as a Spanish teacher; I taught Spanish for 5 years and then I became principal!

Q: What are some fun facts about you?

A: I’ve gone bungee jumping. I am an only child. I do not like asparagus. I was raised on a dairy farm on the west side of the state.
