We hope this note finds everyone well after a lovely summer spent making fun memories. We'd like to give a special welcome to all the new school families joining St. Rose!
The HSA would like to extend a "thank you" to Kate O'Connor. As the Teacher Appreciation Chair, one of her first tasks was to stock the teacher break room fridge. The annual HSA fees are used to restock the fridge, and will continue every 6-8 weeks, filled with goodies requested by the staff.
We would also like to say "thank you" to Michelle McRuiz, for putting together these 'First Day of School' gifts for the teachers and staff. They were all given a Starbucks gift card from the HSA to express our gratitude for all they do for our children and school!
Labor Day Parade
Please join us in the parking lot behind the church, on September 2nd at 9:00 am to help assemble the float. Activities and crafts are planned to keep the children busy, flower headbands for girls and large rosary necklaces for the boys, to be worn at the parade. We will also have field games available, soccer, basketball and corn hole!
September 4th Labor Day, meet at 9:30am. Thank you to those who have purchased roses to help our garden bloom with love for Monsignor, we will have 400 roses "rooted" in our float. ALL students who march with the SRS Labor Day parade float will get a free dress down day! There will be a special treat awarded for the class with the most participants marching with the float! Please wear your St. Rose School spiritwear, cheer, basketball, track uniform, or red and/or white clothing.
If you are not able to march or if you would like to join us for the rest of the parade, we have a spot reserved at Newtown Middle School. You can put out your chairs the night before, behind the “Thank you Monsignor Bob” poster. Light refreshments will be provided.
Back to School Night- First HSA Meeting
Our annual Back to School Night and the first HSA meeting is on Thursday, September 7th at 6:30 pm and will take place, in person, in the Gathering Hall.
For new families joining the St. Rose Community, The Home & School Association hosts several community building events throughout the school year, as well as raising money to provide essential items for the school. All parents are welcome to join. Your dues are used to offset costs for events such as Trunk or Treat, The Sweetheart Dance, Mom & Son Event, Teacher Appreciation Week, and much, much more!!! We encourage your attendance at the meeting to learn more and find additional ways to help our school.
