Current school families and those families interested in learning more about the school are invited to attend the carnival.
Administration, faculty and students will be available from 1 to 2 p.m. before the carnival to lead tours for prospective families and share their experiences of Catholic education.
The HTIS Mountainside Campus will also hold an Open House and Registration for the 2014-2015 school year on Jan. 26 at 10:30 a.m. for Pre-K and kindergarten. Faculty and parents will be on hand to talk about the school's offerings.
Additionally on Tuesday, Jan, 28, from 9 to 11 a.m. the Westfield Campus will open its doors for prospective families to visit classes in session. Those interested in that opportunity or to see either campus while classes are in session, can call the Westfield office at (908) 233-0484 or the Mountainside office at (908) 233-1899 to schedule a tour.
