Dear St. Rose Families,
There is something in every day to be grateful for; during the month of November we pause to spend more time in thanksgiving and counting our many blessings. Our goal is not only to count and be grateful for those blessings, but to also share them. This month our students are busy doing just that. Our First and Fifth Grade Buddies recently filled Boxes of Joy that will be shipped to places where children don't always know the excitement of gifts under the tree. The two classes donated all different types of items, that were then lovingly packed and are now on their way to those children to share the joy of giving and receiving. Our 2nd Annual Turkey Trot Food Drive is underway and our classes are stacking up the nonperishable items that will fill tables and pantries with food items for the holidays and beyond for families in need.
As we are getting closer to the middle of November, and a new quarter of the school year; we look back at the memories and blessings we have received and shared in the first quarter of the year. We have much to be grateful for and we are quickly filling the pages of the story of our 2022-2023 school year.
Our classrooms and halls are the busiest we've seen them and we are most grateful for the children that fill them. Taking their lead, we have been moving forward, reviving traditions, adding a new spin to some of them, and sharing new experiences that we know will become traditions of future school years.
So many smiles, so many successes, so many stories and piles and piles of pictures. I love sharing all those memories with you and it is difficult to pick pictures to include and not be able to include others. So I have been working on changing up the weekly Adventures and will put a few pictures of an event and then below those pictures include a button to click on so you can go to an album of pictures and share in the full experience of these wonderful events with our children.
I am thankful for your support and dedication to our children and school and look forward to seeing you this evening at the State of the School presentation to share the many, many things that our children have been filling their days with and talk about activities and events yet to come! Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
