A Note from Mrs. Ryan    
Dear Parents,

St. Rose has always enjoyed a wonderful working relationship with Cardinal Newman High School that is mutually beneficial. This time of year is particularly gratifying as the high school seniors complete their in-depth service learning projects. Every year a number of CN students choose to do their service projects with or for our students. This year there was a young man who helped Mrs. Szczech in the classroom all year long. He served as a mentor to two second grade children who needed extra learning support. There was another project that involved creating libraries in Laos with donated books from St. Rose and other students in Sonoma County. On Friday the two girls who created this project will provide a short presentation to our students so they can see the good that was accomplished. Another of our alumni did his project with the Shaw Center, which is a respite center run by Catholic Charities for people suffering from Alzheimer's and other dementia's. As part of his project, he arranged for our First Graders to sing for the Shaw Center clients.
Perhaps one of the most influential projects this year has been completed by St. Rose alum, Kabir Daniel. He has been working with Mrs. Bertero and the Eighth Grade class all year on creativity. The Class of 2019 is a particularly creative group and were very receptive to Kabir's units on photography, authorized graffiti art, ukulele, and other forms of music. Inspired by Kabir's presentations, the 8 th graders are currently working on their own creative projects as they complete their time at St. Rose. They include projects on architecture, music composition, and various visual art forms. If you have been on our playground lately, you have seen the beautiful mural projects taking shape on our ball walls that will be a lasting legacy from our Class of 2019.
We are very proud of the accomplishments made by St. Rose alums in high school and beyond.  Kabir will be greatly missed as he continues his education at Cal Berkeley this Fall. Another St. Rose alum, Lucas Loughner, has been chosen as the valedictorian of CN's class of 2019. This is the second year in a row that the CN valedictorian has been a St. Rose graduate.

Is your child interested in being part of the After-School Player's Production of Madagascar Jr next April?

Director Gloria Verse would like you to PLEASE complete the attached 'I'M INTERESTED' sheet and return to the school office.

There are roles for actors in 1st - 8th grades!

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 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.
