Deadline!!!! Friday, December 4th FULCRUM Tuition Assistance for SY 2016-2017

The window of time has opened for next year's tuition assistance application. This is an opportunity to receive $1100 for each child in grades K - 8, based on a family's income level. You can apply at: http://www.fulcrumfoundation.org/apply-for-grant/assistance/.

This application is available in both Spanish and English. As we prepare for tuition contract meetings this Spring, please note that families will not be eligible for any financial assistance through Holy Rosary school UNLESS they have first applied through the Fulcrum Foundation. This means that no contracts will be negotiated without applying first through Fulcrum. Berenice (at the Front Desk) is happy to help parents complete the online application. If you need to schedule a time to meet with her to go through the application, please email her at office@hrrsjda.org. Applications must be completed by Friday, Dec. 4th.

This week we are trying to administer the DRA Language tests to give you a better idea on their Reading Level.


A big focus this week will be on the upcoming holiday 'Thanksgiving'.

We celebrate this special day with heavily laden tables. Now is the time to give thanks to Him who gave us the opportunity to show love to our neighbors.

I told the students, "We work to share; and show we care." After all we constantly tell the children 'sharing is caring'. We will study how we can give thanks to God and to family and friends.


We will learn how this holiday came about. Was it really the Pilgrims and Native Americans who started it? And why? Did we ever give thanks before? Is this an American culture?


If you have the opportunity to attend mass on that day, please go to church and give thanks for what we are given and then sit down with family and friends and talk of all the great things we are thankful for.


Conferences have been scheduled and we are looking forward to meeting with you. If the fifteen minute sharing time is not sufficient we can schedule for more time later. Please be prompt and considerate of those who will be waiting for their time also. See you then.
