Hello! I am happy to serve as the returning SAB President this school year. This will be my family's 5th year at HSS. We have 2 kids - Hayden (4th) and Harper (2nd). We moved to the Bay Area 10 years ago. The HSS community is such a huge part of our lives and has become an extension of our family. We feel extremely grateful to have found a school and community that provides the education, connections and support we have here at Holy Spirit.

As a teenager, my faith journey was ignited by experiencing deep belonging in two places—the religion classes at Presentation and the high school youth group at Holy Spirit Parish. In 2005, my husband and I were married at Holy Spirit, and seeing our daughter Gianna experience the gift of God’s love through the school and church is one of our deepest joys.
 
I look forward to getting to know your family and praying together for our school community as we all continue to grow in our faith. Please consider joining us for Parent Prayer every Friday after morning assembly.

I was born and raised in San Jose/Almaden Valley, baptized at Holy Spirit, and attended Bellarmine. We have been with Holy Spirit School for 11 years. My oldest child, Aleksander, is Sophomore at Bellarmine, and my daughter, Kasia, is in 8th grade. My wife, Amada Torres, helps bring our community together by volunteering as a buddy family and room parent. My mother, Grandma Jerri to some at the school, lives with us and often volunteers her time at both the school and parish (often reading at the 5pm Saturday mass). And, if you happen to meet another Kazmierczak at HSS, they are family (my Sister-in-law is a TA in 2nd Grade and my niece is in 4th grade). We are grateful for the community and positive experiences that Holy Spirit has provided to our entire family.
