Did you know that St. Rose is celebrating 150 years?  Yes, that’s right! Our parish as been a vibrant part of the Franklin/Johnson Co community.  Please join us this weekend as we kick-off our celebration.


We are learning the various properties of addition and multiplication.  This will help us solve problems in our heads without using paper and pencil.  We will also perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers.   Understanding the place-value system is imperative.

Please, please, please have your child review fast facts each evening!  Flashcards or xtramath.org are two of the easiest ways!!

Science- From the desk of Mrs. Tieken:

We are still working on food chains. Students should already have a good grasp on the vocabulary as we have been working with it in-depth for the past two weeks. The vocabulary test will be tomorrow Tuesday August 29th as planned. If your student studies vocabulary, highlighted materials, and their handwritten notes every evening they should have no worries come test time.
