Rocket Report
Vol. 2, No. 2, August 17, 2018
Words with Wilson
This has been a fabulous first full week back!  The energy of the students and staff is electric and great things are happening.

The 8th grade had the opportunity to travel to CYO camp this past Wednesday and participate in a great day of team-building, fellowship and faith.  They have proven that they are ready for the challenge of leading St. Roch Catholic School. I am very excited to see where they are going to take us!


Congratulations Mrs. Anna Roberts
Congratulations go out to our super talented art teacher Anna Roberts.  She received several very prestigious awards recently! She was awarded the Marilyn Glick Award from the Watercolor Society of Indiana at the Museum of Art.  She claimed the Outstanding Still Life Award from the Hoosier Salon at the Indiana State Museum. She became the first person ever to win a first and second place award from the Professional Division at the Indiana State Fair.  

Mrs. Roberts we are so proud of you, and our students are blessed to learn each day from such a talented artist!
