Hawk Happenings!


Happy Wednesday!

Today is a big day at Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy. It is the Feast Day for Our Lady of the Rosary. We will be doing an all school rosary today (at 2 pm in the field) and we encourage families to do one at home, as well. Because of the challenges that the United States is currently going through, all Catholic churches in the United States have been asked to lead a rosary today. So, we will be in good company! If you need a little help with praying the rosary, no worries. Here is a link: https://www.usccb.org/how-to-pray-the-rosary

We are still tracking COVID numbers for Pierce County. We are at 73.9 (with the 6 day lag) as of yesterday. We expect to hit above 75/100,000 today. Now, we just need to see how long the "hold" will be until the TPCHD recommends remote learning. I will update you as soon as I know. It should be at least 1 week, but could be 2 weeks from now. If the numbers turn around and go down dramatically, we could bring it under 75 and stay in school. Keep masking up and social distancing, everyone!! We want to stay in school.

Have a wonderful week and don't forget that there is no school for the students on Friday, Oct. 16th. The staff will be doing a retreat, along with all other schools in the Archdiocese of Seattle that day. Please read through this newsletter for more info!
