Hawk Happenings: March 7th

Holy Rosary Regional School/Juan Diego Academy Community

Message from the Principal

Happy Wednesday!

I wanted to provide an update on the school's request to change our name from Holy Rosary Regional School/Juan Diego Academy to Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy. The request has passed through the School Board up in Seattle and is now with the Archbishop, awaiting his decision. I have had a lot of conversations with the Superintendent, who supports our desire to change the name and is working to get everything approved. Hopefully, we will get an approval very soon! In the meantime, the Gerling Family (parents of triplets in Kindergarten) has very graciously worked on some new marketing and re-branding for us. They have created an amazing billboard graphic that is currently being displayed on one of the digital billboards along I-5 (see photo below)! It is located on the west (left) side of the freeway, just past the Sea Bay boat dealership if you are heading northbound on I-5, just past the Fife curves. We are on the board with DR Horton, John Deere Tractor, Volkswagen, and a couple other car companies. Check it out. It is so amazing!! Also, please join me in thanking the Gerling family for their efforts and the expense of creating new marketing materials. By the way, you will notice that we are using the new website (HolyRosaryBilingual.org), which directs to the current site (HRRSJDA.org). Once we receive the ok from the Archbishop, we will switch everything over to the new website. Please say some prayers for this to get taken care of soon...so we can prep for next year's uniform sweater and Spirit Gear!


Have a great week! Don't forget that we have a noon dismissal both tomorrow and Friday for conferences. Extended Care is available at the regular fee.


Blessings,

Katie Dempsey

Principal
