Rocket Report

Vol. 4, No. 2, August 14, 2020
Words with Wilson
Our first full week is in the books! I continue to be amazed at how great our students and staff are adjusting to the changes that have come with this school year. Great things are happening and it feels so good to have the energy of the kids to continue to drive us forward.  

Thank you so much for your help selling tickets for our Roch Block Raffle. Since Mayfest was canceled, this will really help make up some of our lost revenue. It is disappointing that the event had to be canceled, but we really appreciate you staying dedicated to helping us sell tickets.  

I hope you have a fantastic weekend and thank you for your continued support of St. Roch Catholic School.  
In the Know with PTO
Successful Festa Family Fun Night
Thank you to all of the families who participated in the first-ever Festa Family Fun Night Parade! 
 
The PTO was excited to be invited to assist with this event, and our families did not disappoint. We had a steady stream of cars (many decorated for the occasion!) from open to close. Parade-goers enjoyed ice cream hand-delivered by Father Hunter, as well as parade route filled with music, dancing, and hidden St. Roch logos. Each car that participated in the logo scavenger hunt received a prize. Students received a casual day for their attempts, but four lucky families found each and every logo.  
 
Congrats to the Troxell family, Jennings family, Lowry family and Aubrey Miles, who will all receive a special prize from the PTO!
 
2020-2021 We Are St Roch Spirit Shirt
Did you forget to order one? Or do you want an additional shirt now that the students get to wear them weekly?
 
We have a very limited number of this year's spirit shirt leftover from the sale. We have a few of the following: YM, YL, AS, AM, AL, AXL, A2X and A5X. Pricing is $14 for all sizes, with the exception of A2X and A5X. Those shirts are $17. If you would like a shirt, please contact Tina Hayes at hayes6850@yahoo.com
 
Dine To Donate On Hold This Year
PTO has decided to replace the Dine to Donate fundraising program with a monthly raffle. More details coming soon. But in the meantime, please disregard all Dine To Donate entries in the school calendar. 
 
PTO General Meeting
Save the date. The first General Meeting will take place either outdoors or online September 23. Time and additional details to follow.
 
Mission Wednesday
Mission Wednesday helps to support our sister school St. Maria Goretti in Baie - de - Henne, Haiti. We ask for each student to bring in one quarter every Wednesday. If every student brings in one quarter a week we can feed lunch to all of the students at St. Maria Goretti. We will begin Mission Wednesday this coming Wednesday on August 12th.
