Hawk Happenings: Feb. 7th

Holy Rosary Regional School/Juan Diego Academy Community

Message from the Principal

Happy Wednesday!

We are in full Crab Feed mode this week. Sarah McKinney and her amazing Crab Feed crew have been working hard for months to make this event an amazingly successful fundraiser and a fabulous evening for all. Our Friday night volunteers will meet at the school and head over to Bellarmine Prep with all of the auction goodies and then a night of decorating the Connelly Campus Center. The Saturday volunteer crew will do the last minute set-up and the Sunday crew are tackling clean-up. If you still need volunteer hours and want to help, here is the signup.com link: https://hrrsjda.ejoinme.org/Crab2018Volunteer

Also, you can still purchase tickets for the event...until 3 pm TODAY. Here is the link if you still need a ticket: https://hrrsjda.ejoinme.org/Crab2018Tickets

Thank you for your support of this event and I look forward to seeing you there!

Have a great week!


Katie Dempsey

Tuition Contract Meetings...Coming Soon!

We will have tuition contract meetings for all families who need any financial assistance for the 2018-19 school year AND have a completed/verified Fulcrum application. Since enrollment opens up to new families on Monday, Feb. 26th, we want all current families to have the opportunity to sign up before that day! The meetings will be 20 min in length and are back to back on the following days:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 21st from 8 am - 5 pm
  • Thursday, Feb. 22nd from 10 am - 7 pm
  • Friday, Feb. 23rd from 9 am - 4 pm

Here is the link to sign up for a conference: http://signup.com/login/entry/786984356943534088

A Few Very Important Items:

  1. In order to have a contract meeting, families must be up-to-date on their tuition/fees for the current school year.
  2. Please make sure to be on time for your meeting, as they will be back to back all day.
  3. Please note that all contracts need to go up from year to year (at a rate appropriate for each family's circumstances). The school's expenses (salaries, electricity, garbage, etc.) all go up, so our revenue has to increase, as well.
