Principal's Message

Mrs. Maryalice L. Doherty is in her eighth year as Principal of Holy Family School.  Prior to coming to Holy Family, Mrs. Doherty was the Assistant Principal at Maria Regina School in Seaford for five years.  Mrs. Doherty served as Principal of The De La Salle School in Freeport, taught Pre-K at Saint Ignatius Loyola School in Hicksville and Special Ed Kindergarten at Northside School in Levittown. She began her career as a Student Teacher at Saint William the Abbot School in Seaford in 1979 and she remained there teaching fourth and second grades until 1987 when she had her first child.

Mrs. Doherty attended Saint Bernard's School in Levittown, The Academy of Saint Joseph in Brentwood, Saint Joseph's College in Patchogue and Fordham University. Obviously, Catholic Education plays a big part in her life!

Mrs. Doherty is married with a daughter and a son. Both of her children were educated in Catholic Elementary School, Catholic High School and Catholic Colleges. Her daughter is a Kindergarten 
Teacher and her son is a Detective in the New York City Police Departmant.  She believes she was born to be a mother, a wife, and a Catholic School Educator, and she truly loves being all three! 

Mrs. Doherty is proud of the fact that the teachers and staff at Holy Family join her in taking very seriously the sacred trust parents place in us when they choose to sent their children to Holy Family School.  As a school "family" we work diligently to adhere to our tagline: "making a difference, one child at a time".  

Holy Family School…”making a difference, one child at a time”
