Principal's Message - Feb. 10th

Happy Wednesday!

I hope that everyone enjoyed the excitement of Catholic Schools Week. The kids seemed to have a blast and the teachers really went all out with those spirit days!! We definitely showcased what makes Holy Rosary the amazing place it is. We are a fun, caring, faith-filled community committed to providing a high-quality academic environment for all of our students. Our school is a unique place. What creates this fantastic place? The staff, the students, and the outstanding commitment from our families. Thank you for all you do for Catholic education!

Don't forget...today is the start of Lent.

Have a wonderful week!

Katie Dempsey

Auction/Crab Feed:

The auction deadline is right around the corner. Reminder - Auction items totaling $100.00 are due no later than Wednesday, February 17th. After that, each family will be billed $150.00. If you would prefer not to procure items or put a basket together you can pay the $100 fee directly to the office. Thank you to the families that have already turned in auction items or paid the auction fee.

Volunteers needed for the Crab Feed/Auction.

We are in need of a large amount of volunteers to make this event a success. We are looking for help with set-up, decorations, silent auction tables, food service and check-in/check-out. Please see the comprehensive handout that is included in this week’s envelope to see areas where you can assist. This is a great event to get a bulk of your volunteer hours complete for the year. The required family volunteer hours are 30 and for single family households they are 15.
