St. Rose School
St. Rose Report for January 7, 2018
Dear St. Rose Families,

Happy Epiphany of the Lord!

Gateway Learning Center here in Longview has offered to team up with St. Rose to support our students who are struggling in math and language arts. They will be providing math tutoring support for a group of middle students here at the school on Wednesdays at 4:00 PM. Parents of children children who are enrolled for this math group will receive an email from Mrs. Strader this week. The school will be paying a discounted rate for this small group instruction to help students that are struggling with the same things in math.

Gateway has also offered St. Rose School reduced rates for individual tutoring at their location. If you are interested in having your child supported at Gateway Learning Center at a reduced tutoring rate, please contact Mrs. Strader for more information.

Yours in Christ always,

Catherine Strader

Staffing Changes
Marketing Director
Mrs. Heidi Connole, our marketing director, has been given the opportunity for advancement with her other employer and is unable to continue on as our marketing director. She will be missed as one of our office staff, but we know her new role is what is best for her family at this time. Mrs. Connole will still be active as a parent volunteer in our school community so you will still see her around.

We will not be filling the role of marketing director for the rest of this year, but we do have parents with marketing experience willing to step in and assist with our marketing efforts. Our Auction Committee is also well underway for planning a successful 2018 school auction. They will be communicating auction progress with you all soon.
Middle School Science Teacher
We would also like to welcome Jennifer O'Farrell as our temporary science teacher. She will be working Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for the rest of year.

Ms. O'Farrell will be teaching 5th & 6th grade science, 5th grade religion with Ms. Tee, and electives. Her elective class this term with be a diversified learning class where she will teach small math groups, provide additional science lab time for the 7th & 8th grade, as well as support other middle school students that are falling behind in their other classes.

She is excited to join our team and support our middle school students and teachers. You can contact her at
