Hawk Happenings!

Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy

Happy Wednesday!

Dear Families,

Welcome back from Easter vacation! I hope you all rested up. It is going to be a busy final few weeks of school. This Friday, we are celebrating May Crowning, in honor of the month of May being dedicated to Mary. We are asking each child to bring a flower, which will be brought forward at mass on Friday morning. The flower can just be clipped from your yard...no need to purchase a bouquet (unless you want to). Please join us for this beautiful mass at 9 am in the auditorium on Friday.

Next, we have our big auction on Saturday evening. Thank you to all of our attendees and the volunteers who have signed up to help us on Friday or Saturday. If you have not signed up and want to knock out those volunteer hours, it isn't too late. You can sign up for a volunteer space at: http://signup.com/go/zLLSiWR If you are attending the event at Holy Cross Parish, doors open at 5 pm. Get ready for an evening of great food, good friends, and exciting bidding!

Please say some prayers for us to have a successful event and if you know of anyone who could not attend but would like to donate, they can do so at: https://secure.lglforms.com/form_engine/s/o5kPfZnwU-9YPZxE8gatew

Have a blessed week and enjoy this sunshine!!

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.

Please contact Amanda Schweickert, amanda.p.schweickert@gmail.com or Claudia Klein,carmen-klein@hotmail.com to volunteer.
