Spirit Day tomorrow - Thursday -  Hawaiian themed Free Dress
Students who choose to participate may wear clothing with a Hawaiian theme. (per dress code)
Please be sure and return your Wednesday envelope by Friday for the remainder of month. 
There are important forms and information going home starting next week.
Parents who order hot lunch weekly, must be sure and place the order by Wednesday PM for the following week. If you miss ordering in time, please contact the school office by 9am to request we add your child to the lunch list for the same day. We will honor the request and expect that you send in the $6.50 to the office the next day. Many students have been coming to school without lunches, whose parents have forgotten to place orders in time, which creates added distraction and time for the teachers and office to manually add, inform Epicurean of the extra lunches, and to collect money from parents.  Beginning next year, lunch orders must be placed monthly, the weekly option will not be available.  We will no longer be able to manually add students to the hot lunch list after 9am or without parent approval.

Eating a healthy during the day is important for students to remain on task and to focus on their school work throughout the day. Please do not send candy, sugary snacks, soda, high sugar drinks or Kombucha to school.  A healthy mid morning snack and a well balanced lunch, with some lean protein, a few carbs, fruit or vegy, and water really is best.

A Note from Mrs. Ryan    
Dear Parents,

A few days ago, Caroline Hickey and I shared the happy news with the 3 rd Graders that she is getting married this weekend. For a bride-to-be, she has been remarkably relaxed and focused on her students. You would never guess that she has been simultaneously planning a wedding for 150 guests. When she returns to us next week, it will be as Mrs. Dumanovsky. However, the 3 rd Graders may continue to call her Miss Hickey for the rest of the year.
Lindsey Hahn, our 1 st grade teacher, will be starting her maternity leave on Monday.  Her baby girl is due very soon. We will let you know when the blessed event happens. Lindsey is definitely planning to return to us in September.
Fr. Denis O'Sullivan, who has been pastor of St. Rose Church since the early 1980's, has recently announced his retirement. Father has been a priest for forty seven years, and those of us who are St. Rose Parishioners feel very blessed to have had the benefit of his leadership and pastoral care at St. Rose for so many years. I am sure if we took a poll we would find that he has baptized at least half of the students at St. Rose School. Father has always been very supportive of our school and he will be greatly missed. We will honor his service to our school during Move-Up Day on June 6 th. Father plans to live half the year in Ireland and the other half in our diocese. His successor has not yet been appointed.
