Message from the Principal: Feb. 1st

Happy Wednesday and Happy Catholic Schools Week!

One of the greatest gifts you can give to your child is the gift of a quality education. When you pair that with the moral foundation of a Catholic school, you are setting your child up for a bright, successful future. Thank you for choosing Holy Rosary as your Catholic school. We enjoy partnering with you to give your child all of the tools they need to be successful.

Have a wonderful week and please join us at tomorrow's Mass at 9 am and the musical performance for grades Pre-K through four at 11 am.

Wednesday: Staff Appreciation Day (80s and crazy hair day)

We have scheduled meetings every 30 min on Feb 22, 23, and 24 (including evening appts). All families who have applied for Fulcrum and are requesting ANY financial assistance from the school will need to schedule a contract meeting for the 2017-18 school year.
