New Staff Member Spotlight
Director of Marketing and Advancement
I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with all of you to share the great things that are happening at our wonderful St. Rose School! 

My formal education is in Business and Psychology, but throughout my academic career, I have taken courses in Theology, Sociology, Anthropology and Cultural Studies. My work experience is in business marketing and management and I’ve started programs in public education everywhere I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve helped them grow in enrollment and funding and am eager to use my knowledge, skills and abilities to serve our parish school. My family and I live here in Longview. 

We have a son who attends St. Rose, two dogs and a cat (but they’re only here for the Blessing of the Animals). I have a lifelong commitment to education and am particularly interested in fostering opportunities here in our community for our current students and beyond. In the coming months, I will be reaching out to you to seek your insights and input as to why you chose St. Rose and what you love about our faith and academic community!

Don't forget to come on Tuesday, August 29 from 1:00 - 3:00 to drop off your child's school supplies in their homerooms. Then swing by the playground for some ice cream. It will be a great time to visit with other St. Rose families.

Calling all preschool students and parents! Come to the preschool room between 1:00 and 3:00 to make the first day of school easier. You will get to see their classroom, meet their teachers, and play with their new friends. After visiting the preschool rooms, please come to the playground for ice cream.

Going GaGa for St. Rose School
We have earned $750 thus far for our new school GaGa pit using "Go Fund Me." We have collected additional $300 from checks in the school office. That means we are a little over 1/3 of the way there. Keep those donations coming for this new recess activity.

Open times are Monday, August 28 3:00 - 5:00, Tuesday, August 29 from 8:00 - 10:00. Thank so much for helping get the school ready for the kids before their first day.
