Sargent Benjamin Griswold  (Oliver's Dad, Prek) encourages our students to take the pledge, "Raise your right hand and repeat after me - I AM A VOLUNTEER - Raise your left hand.  Look to your left.  Look to your right.  Imagine what you amazing students could do with incredible minds and useful hands to volunteer and serve.  You must take the initiative to volunteer.  The action of saying yes to volunteer is the selfless sacrifice of your own time to serve someone or something other than yourself.   Just like our veterans ... to make the selfless sacrifice to serve others."

Thank you to all our men and women who served in the USA Armed Forces and Peace Corp.  We are grateful to you.

The events include kids' dashes, a 1 mile run/walk, a 3 mile run/walk and a 10K run.  Ribbons will be awarded to all participants and medals will be awarded to specific place finishers.  In addition, there is a School Challenge and School Spirit Award.

Students, family members, teachers and staff members are encouraged to participate, and trophies will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place schools in each grade level category based on the highest level of participation.  Winning schools will also receive prize money: (1st Place - $500; 2nd Place - $300; 3rd Place - $200). We strongly urge Holy Rosary School students, family members, teachers and staff members to participate in this fun, worthwhile event.  Entry forms are available in the school office.  We really hope that you can join us and support our school.
