Message from the Principal: Dec. 14th

Happy Wednesday!

It seems hard to believe that we are ready for Christmas vacation! Tonight is the Christmas Concert. The event begins at 6:30 pm, but doors will open at 6 pm for seating. Students should arrive at the school at 6 pm in full costume. The kids can go straight to their classrooms and the parents can go immediately to the auditorium to reserve their seats. I hope that you enjoy this amazing program. Mr. Nolting and the kids have been working very hard!

Reminder: We have a NOON DISMISSAL and NO EXTENDED CARE on Friday.

I want to wish all of you a happy, safe, and blessed Christmas vacation. We will see everyone back at the school on Tuesday, Jan. 3rd.

Thank you to all who applied for Fulcrum tuition assistance.

Annual Fund Thank You:

A big thank you to all of the families, alumni, staff, and friends of Holy Rosary that supported our Annual Fund Appeal. Your donations help support our school by providing funds for curriculum and materials and additional teacher training. Our goal for the Appeal is $100,000. To date we have made: $80,203 and we had 30% of families participate. If you are still considering a gift, any donations made through the month of December will be matched, dollar for dollar. We just need to raise $9,900 (plus the match) to make our goal! So, get those tax deductible donations in before the end of the month! :) The secure link to donate is: https://secure.lglforms.com/form_engine/s/o5kPfZnwU-9YPZxE8gatew

Your additional financial support to the school means so much. Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Auction/Crab Feed:

The Auction/Crab Feed will be here before we know it! Each family is required to provide an item valued at $100 for the Crab Feed/Auction. Christmas break would be a great time to get this fulfillment complete. Deadline for auction items is approaching and is January 6th. After January 6th, families will be assessed a $150 fee.

Are you looking for ideas for auction items? Please visit the event website for details: https://hrrsjda.ejoinme.org/MyEvents/AuctionCrabFeed2017/ProcurementDetails/tabid/825568/Default.aspx If you prefer to pay the $100 fee directly to the school you can do so on the event website.
