On Monday, June 4, planned construction will begin on the front of Holy Name’s main building. The construction will continue through Friday, August 17.
Between June 4 and August 17, Holy Name’s Main Entrance will not be open. Additionally, the circle in front of the main building will be inaccessible to traffic at certain times.
For those who need to come to the school’s Main Office this summer, please come up Layor Drive, and park in the teacher’s lot. You can enter using the school’s side entrance.
For those needing access to the athletic facilities (Main and Auxiliary Gyms, Cicerchi Field, Weight Room, etc.), please come up Queens Highway and park in the student parking lot. You can enter using the Main Gym entrance.
Please remember there is no one-way traffic on Layor Drive or Queens Highway during the summer; both streets are open to two-way traffic at all hours until school resumes in August.
Help Name the Green Wave Mascot!
Earn your place in Holy Name High School history: Help name the NEW Green Wave Mascot!
The Mascot Naming Submission Form is now open, with entries being taken until Friday, March 9 at 11:59 p.m. ET. The form asks for the nominator’s name and email address, and most importantly, what the name of the new Holy Name mascot should be. To access the submission form, visit this page by Friday night.
Once all submissions are in, the Mascot Naming Committee will review all of them and select their top choices (submissions of the same name multiple times will not influence the committee’s decision on whether or not to include them in the top choices).
A separate survey will be sent out at a later date with the top name choices included, and whichever name receives the highest amount of votes in that survey, will be the winner.
Current students, alumni, parents and friends are all invited to participate in the Mascot Naming Contest. The committee looks forward to reviewing the submissions!

Construction on New Turf Field Begins
On Thursday, August 18, Holy Name High School held a groundbreaking ceremony for the school’s new turf field and track project.
Holy Name President Terry Kenneally ’67, Principal Shelbrey Blanc ’95, Athletic Director Jack Richardson ’79, Advisory Board Members Scott Opincar ’87 and Matt Gray ’86, and major donor Rich Cicerchi ’65 were the first to break ground on the field. (A picture of this significant moment in Holy Name’s history is attached to this email.) Several other Holy Name alumni, supporters and students were also on-hand for this special event.
Construction on the field began on Monday, August 22. Before FieldTurf can begin the installation of the new surface, trees must be removed and the current grass field playing area must also be excavated and leveled. In just one week’s time, workers have made significant process on this portion of the project.
During Phase I of the ‘Team Up for Turf’ initiative, the synthetic, multi-purpose athletic turf field will be installed. It will be known as Cicerchi Field, thanks to the generous support of Rich Cicerchi ’65. Holy Name expects this first phase to be completed by early November 2016. The school also has plans for a Phase II, which will include the installation of an all-weather track around the turf field.
