A Note from Mrs. Ryan    
Dear Parents,

This morning we marked the beginning of Lent with Mass. The ashes we received on our foreheads during Mass are a symbol of repentance, or changing our lives for the better. In their religion classes our students are learning about the season of Lent, its symbols and its rituals.
They have all made Lenten promises to become better Christians by developing a new positive habit and possibly getting rid of a habit that is not good for them. I hope you will take some time during the next few days to ask your child to share his or her Lenten promise with you.
 
As a school wide Lenten project we are working on a Corporal Work of Mercy - Shelter the Homeless. Each class is collecting a particular item that will be included in Care Packages and distributed locally through Catholic Charities. Click here for the list that of items being collected by each class.
 
This project is especially poignant to some of us who have worked at St. Rose for a long time.   We recently became aware that one of our former students, who is now an adult, died homeless and alone in a Sonoma County waterway that was swollen from the recent rain. Most of our students are unaware of the circumstances, but they know our Mass this morning was offered in Alex's name and they are praying for him. As part of our Lenten project, Catholic Charities will be sending speakers to talk with our students about homelessness in age appropriate ways. Once I have the date set I will let you know so you can engage with your child on this subject at home.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Coming Soon - New Ordering process for School Uniforms
Parents will now place all uniform orders online.  Our uniform supplier, Sonoma Design, will be launching an online store just for St. Rose.  The next ordering opportunity will begin before the end of the school year, for August delivery.

The school will continue to keep a range of sample sizes for those who need to determine sizing, and we'll keep a small inventory of items to fill emergency orders when the store is closed. (The store ordering 'windows' will occur several times throughout the year. That schedule will be posted once determined.

St. Rose will hold a TRY ON date where parents can bring students to try on samples to determine sizing before placing orders. That date will be sometime in June.     Check back later for all the info!
Parking Lot Safety
Safety First depends on your cooperation!
Please remember, and tell all those in your family who drive onto our campus, to please drive safely!

Some important safety reminders:
  1. Be patient. Drive slow. Be kind. Do not impede traffic flow or others.
  2. If your child goes to tutorial, do not get in the pick up line before 3:10 pm. Do not sit in the traffic circle waiting. Circle around back in line to keep traffic flow moving.
  3. DO NOT leave your car unattended in the traffic circle during drop off or pick up. Stay in your car and move as soon as your child gets in or out. If you have office business, please park in a designated parking spot.
  4. Morning drop off: everyone is in a hurry it seems to get to where they need to go. Please do not speed through campus. Do not pass unlawfully or unsafely. Be patient. Plan accordingly.
  5. If a staff member asks you to move your car or to park, they are doing what is in the best interests of everyone and to keep traffic moving. Please be respectful and do what they ask of you.
We thank you for your cooperation and appreciate your partnership in keeping everyone safe out there!
