Hawk Happenings: June 6th

Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy

Message from the Principal


We are moving quickly through the final days of the 2017-18 school year. Yesterday, we celebrated four of our 7th graders who exhibit amazing leadership in the following areas: Academic (Galilea), Co-Curricular (Valeria), Community Service (Adam), and Faith (Alexandra). They were honored at a regional 7th Grade Award ceremony held at Holy Rosary Church. It was a wonderful event honoring the hard work of 7th graders from all throughout the Pierce County Catholic Schools.

Today, we had Student Council speeches and the 1st through 8th graders voted. The Student Council team for next year is:

  • President: Galilea
  • Vice-President: Valeria
  • Secretary: Chelsea
  • PR Director: Karina
  • Service Director: Autumn Z
  • Spiritual Director: Peter

Thank you to the 2017-18 Student Council and congrats to the 2018-19 Student Council.

Tomorrow is the big day for our graduates...the Class of 2018! Congratulations to:

  • Elise
  • Caleb
  • Christina
  • Alyssa
  • Jesus
  • Jonathan
  • Ruben
  • Jose

Statements Go Home Today!

Please check your child's backpack for your monthly billing statement. Remember, tuition is billed out Aug - May and so the only billing for June should be for meals and extended care, as well as the spring fundraiser. If you have other charges that are owed from before, however, those are due immediately. Families who are behind on their tuition and other charges will NOT receive final student report cards until all charges have been paid. Thank you and please don't hesitate to ask Kelly if you have any questions. She can be reached at finance@hrrsjda.org or call 253-272-7012.

Development News! Ready to Purchase those New Uniforms!

New Uniform Vendor

Recently we added an additional school uniform vendor. As we transition to Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy we will be updating our sweaters, vests, and spirit gear to reflect the new name and logo. Apparel that is in good condition that has Holy Rosary Regional School can still be worn in the 2018-2019 school year.

The new uniform vendor is School Uniforms by Tommy Hilfiger. Their prices are very competitive and they stand by their products. They also offer occasional sales too. They don’t have a local store but you can easily order online or via the phone. Please see the flyers located in the school communication folder which details how to order and an upcoming 20% off sale.
