OCTOBER is the Month of the ROSARY
October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary! The best way to celebrate the month is, of course, to pray the Rosary.
The holy rosary is a prayer in which we meditate on the life of Jesus. Because of the mission that Mary received from God, her life was closely tied to Jesus. Mary’s Immaculate Heart was always focused on the life of her son Jesus. When we pray the rosary, we are asking Mary to pray for us that we might be more focused on the life of Jesus.
In this month of October, let us consider this beautiful prayer of the Rosary as a means to help bring us closer to Jesus and Mary by meditating on the great mysteries of our salvation.

Gods Master Paws
Academics are a key component of school, but the student experience isn’t solely defined by their education. The wellness team at Holy Redeemer believes that school is about the friends you’ll make, the moments you’ll experience, and the passions you’ll discover.
This year we will be hosting Wellness Wednesdays! These days could an activity, challenge, spirit day, or fundraiser. At Holy Redeemer we want students to build connections with their peers, teachers, school, and community. Wellness Wednesdays will also be a support for mental health and will be designed to promote a balanced lifestyle beyond the academic.
Sometimes the activities will include friendly competitions between the classes. The class that participates the most will be given the School Spirit Trophy to display in their classrooms for the week and will be mentioned on the announcements! We will be keeping score of participation on a bulletin board at the school for students to see.
