Hawk Happenings!

Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy

Happy Monday!

Dear Families,

I hope that you are all recovering from that lost hour by setting the clocks ahead! We have a very busy week and a lot of schedule changes, so I am sending the newsletter early this week. This week, we have two full days, two 1/2 days, and one day of work for the teachers (with no students). In addition, we have conferences, spring photos, the Book Fair, and Spring Fling! Wow! What a week! Please scroll through the newsletter to find the links to:

  • Sign up for conferences
  • Help with the Book Fair
  • Bring something for the Spring Fling
  • Order spring photos (only students who are haven their picture taken on Wed have free dress)

One last item, there are some nasty "bugs" going around right now. We have had a number of staff and students out sick. It is a powerful combo of a stomach bug and head cold. Please make sure that you are not sending your child to school if they are feeling sick and/or have a temperature. We don't want this to keep spreading!

Have a fantastic week!
