Hawk Happenings!


Happy Wednesday...and Happy Inauguration Day!

It was so wonderful to see more of our students back yesterday. Currently, we have 5 full classes in session (PK through grades 3 or 4) each day. We also have the middle school students trickling in for afternoon sessions. It makes my heart so happy to see this! I know that it makes the students (and parents happy) to be back together, as well! Thank you for your patience and dedication through all of this. We hope those COVID numbers will be down very soon and we can have EVERYONE on site full time. On that note, we hope to have Urielle back with us soon. She is continuing to improve and we thank you for your prayers.

One more thank you...thank you for completing the Intent to Return survey. It is a very short survey, but provides us with critical information as we do projections and budgeting for next year. If you have not completed it, please, please, please do so. Here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MBGTGYH We will put all names of those who have completed the survey in a drawing for a special gift to be handed out next week!

Have a wonderful week and do not hesitate to let the teachers or me know if you need our help.

REMINDER: $100 Auction Family Commitments are due Friday, February 19, 2021!

As noted on the Financial Agreement, each Holy Rosary family is required to contribute to the annual Auction. This year we have combined our Gala and Auction events so we need to do even better on this event!

We will accept donations equal to or greater than $100 in value in the form of cash or check, gift cards to local restaurants, businesses, sporting events, or places of interest. Families may also provide vouchers for goods and services such as catering, lawn maintenance, baked goods, etc. For the virtual auction, we will have food/alcohol for pick-up. If you would like, you can donate wine towards your $100 commitment. We can provide donation forms, if you prefer to solicit your items from a local business, stop by the office to grab a form.

When turning in your auction items to the office, we will ask you to fill out a form with an item description and value. This allows us to track these as in-kind donations.

You can easily pay your $100 procurement commitment by contacting Nina in the office at 253-272-7012, or online here at https://secure.lglforms.com/form_engine/s/o5kPfZnwU-9YPZxE8gatew fill out the form and choose 2021 Auction Procurement from the Campaign drop-down menu.

If the item or payment is not received by February 19, families will be invoiced $150.

***Items are subject to procurement committee approval.***

A Few Important Reminders

  • If you are dropping your child off in the morning, please be careful if you park in the front row. Cars are moving through for drop off. If you do not have a child in Pre-K or K, please just pull through and avoid parking as it can get things backed up and become dangerous.
  • Also, if your child arrives late to school, we need you to park and walk them in while they get screened.

Intent to Return

Please take just a quick moment (less than 1 minute) to take this survey. It does not hold you to a contract in any way for the 2021-22 school year. It is simply a way to give us an indication of who will be returning next year, as we plan our 2021-22 school budget. THANK YOU for doing this.
