Hawk Happenings!

Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy

Happy Wednesday!

Dear Families,

Can you believe that we are headed toward Easter and only have 9 weeks left of school? Wow. There is still so much left to accomplish. It can feel overwhelming at times, which is why Lent provides us a nice period of rest. I was reading a website the other day where it talked about Lent being "Spring cleaning for the soul"...an interesting thought. Here are some questions to reflect on during this time:

  • Do I have a gracious and patient attitude with the people in my life?
  • Do I look for the best in others or do I have a judgmental attitude?
  • Do I have a thankful heart, or am I constantly complaining about situations and people in my life?
  • When people look at me, do they see a reflection of Jesus...caring for those who are less fortunate?

I thought these were great questions. Even just reflecting on one per week might make a difference in your life and the lives of those around you!

Have a wonderful week!

Alice in Wonderland

The school is excited to announce that we have the Missoula Children’s Theater coming to our school to work with the students (K-8th) on a production of Alice in Wonderland. This will be an intensive week long production. Two professional actors will be coaching the students and will provide two workshops during the week for the entire school. The cost to participate will be $50 due May 1st. Forms to participate will be provided.

Please save these dates if you are interested in participating.

  • Practices will be from 3pm-5pm and 5:15pm -7:15pm, May 13-May 17th. Not all students will be needed at both practices.

  • Performances will be on Friday evening, May 17th at 6:30pm and Saturday, May 18th at 3pm. Students will need to arrive by 1:30pm for the Saturday performance.

VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We need volunteers.

  • Two host families to host each actor from May 12th – May 19th. The only requirement is that they have their own room. However, one of the actors is allergic to cats.

  • 1 or 2 parents to help during the practices to make sure the students are in the correct location. Sign up will be provided for each session.
