Hawk Happenings: Jan. 24th

Holy Rosary Regional School/Juan Diego Academy Community

Message from the Principal

Happy Wednesday!

CSW 2018

Catholic Schools Week begins this weekend! It is a time to celebrate all that Catholic Schools bring to students, families, and our community. The motto for this week is: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed. We will kick things off with Catholic Schools Week Mass on Sunday at noon at Holy Rosary Church. Any student who attends mass this weekend (in uniform) will be given a free dress pass to be used on Monday, February 5th. Students simply need to bring in a note from a parent indicating that they were at mass in uniform (at any church) and give the note to their homeroom teacher on Monday, Jan. 29th. Check out the section below on CSW 2018 for information about the rest of the week!

Enrollment Begins Monday!

Don't forget...registration starts on Monday for current families!! At Holy Rosary/Juan Diego, you get a fantastic education grounded in morals and faith, as well as a world-class bilingual program in a small setting (15:1 average student to teacher ratio). Current families will get the first crack at enrollment and then the slots will open up for new families on Monday, Feb. 26th. Check out the link below for information on the enrollment process.

Please buy your tickets this week so that we can get a firm handle on our numbers for the food. We hope to see you there...and thank you for your support!

Don't forget about the State of the School meeting tomorrow night at 6:30 pm in the auditorium. Families will receive 2 service hours for attending this important event. This is an adults-only event.

Have a great week!

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!!
