Principal's Message - Mar. 9th

Happy Wednesday!

Crab Feed, Crab Feed, Crab Feed...that's been the focus of this past week. This Saturday evening, we will be getting together for a fabulous fundraising event filled with all-you-can-eat crab, prime rib, beer, and wine, as well as an auction (silent and live), and dancing! You can even bid on going paint-balling with Father Wichert or being a Principal for a Day!!

The Crab Feed Committee has done an outstanding job of making sure every last detail is taken care of so that this can be a fantastic event to raise money for our school. It's important for all of us to support the school in any way that we can. From the set-up to the take-down, attendees and volunteers who are working the event, we are all in this together and it takes the work of everyone to make it a success! If you still want to be involved with volunteering (for service hours, of course!), just show up on Friday at 6 pm (at the school) to help load items. I hope to see you there.

Have a wonderful week!

Katie Dempsey

Goodbye to Mrs. Scott...and Hello to Mrs. Wills

As many of you know, Mrs. Scott is having to leave us this Friday. She and her husband are being moved to Hohenfels, Germany. This is sad news for all of us, as Mrs. Scott has been a critical (and much loved) member of our family at Holy Rosary. We want to wish her the best in Germany and hope to see her again soon.

We are fortunate to have found a wonderful young lady to take over for Mrs. Scott. Her name is Rebecca Wills. She comes to us with a strong background in math and science, as well as a devotion to her Catholic faith. Just like Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Wills' husband is also in the military. Hopefully, we can keep her for a while, though!! Please welcome her to our community when you see her...she starts with us on Monday, March 14th.

Volunteers Needed for the Crab Feed/Auction!

Thank you to all of the volunteers that have already responded about helping at the event. We can now start moving items on Friday evening, March 11th. Yeah!! The plan will be to meet at the school at 6:00 pm to load vehicles and head to Holy Cross after 7:00 pm. This is a great event to get a bulk of your volunteer hours complete for the year.
