A Note from Mrs. Ryan    
Dear Parents,

The last few days of summer are always very busy ones for teachers and staff. This year is unique since contractors are still putting the finishing touches on the two reconstructed classrooms and the new HVAC system.  Rest assured that our classrooms and hallways will be lovely by the time we greet your children on August 22 nd. All of us at St. Rose are looking forward to welcoming our students as we commence a fabulous, normal school year.
