Our Catholic Schools Week celebration was top-notch! From watching a movie in our jammies to attending our famed Punk-n-Rock show on Friday, your child no doubt had something to smile about!  Our Catholic identity was in full swing.  I hope you know just how blessed I feel to be a part of your child’s faith formation!

And now…we march forward into February! If you’d like to help with our classroom Valentine’s Day party, please send me a quick note or stop me along the way, I’d love to have your support.

Also, I hope by now you’ve received an invitation to join us this Wednesday evening to kick-off our Annual Fund Dinner.  It’s also our way of saying THANKS for supporting our mission at St. Rose!  All are welcome to join us.  More information can be found on a blog or on our school Facebook page!
