Message from the Principal

Happy Wednesday!

Progress Reports are going home today. Remember, this is just a mid-term check for your child(ren) in the second trimester, which ends on February 23rd. If you have any questions or concerns about their progress, don't hesitate to contact the teacher so that s/he can assist you and your child(ren) in making a fantastically successful 2nd trimester.

Have you purchased your tickets for the annual Crab Feed and Auction? Tickets are $60 per person and can be purchased online at https://hrrsjda.ejoinme.org/crab2018. Don't miss this event! Buy your tickets today! We hope to see you there!

Have a great week!

Upcoming Events:

This Week:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 10th - Progress Reports go Home, Peter Pan, Jr. Auditions
  • Thursday, Jan. 11th - Please return signed Communication Envelopes, Peter Pan, Jr. Auditions
  • Friday, Jan. 19th - Mass has been CANCELLED for today, Peter Pan, Jr. Auditions

Reminder: Fee for Not Returning Communication Envelope

This is just a reminder that families who do not return their Wednesday envelopes by Friday will be charged $5 for each week we have to provide a new one. When we do not have them to send out, it takes time and resources to provide a new one. So, please avoid this charge and make sure they get turned in no later than Friday each week. Thanks to all who turn them in on time regularly. We appreciate it!!

Family Survey

Thank you so much for taking the time to complete the family survey. We have received some excellent information, which will be shared at the State of the School event next Thursday, Jan. 25th (6:30 pm). We are finishing compiling the information and will reach out to anyone who has requested a further conversation in the next week or so. It is always helpful for us to get feedback and we appreciate your time.

From the Development Office:

Amazon Smile

If you haven't signed up already, it is quick and easy. Anytime you shop on Amazon a portion of the sales will be donated back to the school.

1. Go to smile.amazon.com and sign in with your existing Amazon account, or create one.

2. Enter Academia Juan Diego as the charitable organization you wish to support.

Each time you shop on Amazon you need to go to smile.amazon.com for your purchases to count for the school versus just going to Amazon.com.

Auction/Crab Feed

The Crab Feed/Auction is less than a month away. Please join us at the annual Auction/Crab Feed on February 10th. Don’t miss this fun and interactive evening to support Holy Rosary School. Please see the website with all of the event details and to purchase tickets online: https://hrrsjda.ejoinme.org/Crab2018Tickets

If you are not able to attend as a guest, please consider attending as a volunteer. This is a major event and it takes many to make it a success. There are multiple opportunities to volunteer from February 9 - 11. There are opportunities for set-up, to work the event, and to clean up.
