Dear Saint Rose Families,

Advent begins this Sunday. We are looking forward to this season of anticipation.  There is no hiding that "Christ is the Reason for the Season" at Saint Rose Catholic School. Students in preschool through 8th grade will celebrate the season through prayer, Mass, service, art, music and more.  There will be many opportunities for families to celebrate the coming of Christ at our Christmas performances. 
In the past month, several students worked on art for the Knights of Columbus and their annual "Keep Christ in Christmas" campaign. There were many outstanding examples. Six were selected as finalists and we are using their artwork to send Christmas cards to our grandparents, informing them of the upcoming Christmas programs. Please see their artwork below. Congratulations to Elizabeth Kobler, Caitlin Shroyer, Graydon Ward, Elise Dunbar, Clare Wellstein, and Lily Smith.

Kroger Community Rewards

Time to print your Rewards Balance

It is time to print your Kroger Community Rewards balance.  Please send the print-out to the Saint Rose School office to the attention of Alison Ray-Kobler.  Alternatively, you can send a print-out of your earnings to Alison ataliqwreigh@gmail.com .  To ensure that we have the most up to date information on file, please also write the name of the St. Rose child/family who should receive the credit for your earnings (if applicable).  The only way we are able to assign the Kroger Community Rewards to a specific student account is by having the participants print and submit their Kroger Community Rewards donation amount. 
Please note:  Kroger recently upgraded their Community Rewards system, and as a result, St. Rose has a new account number - (CN971).  Don't worry - the previous number will continue to be associated with St. Rose, but it will not be visible to new members when enrolling.  For those existing members, your account may already reflect the new number - CN971.  

If you have questions, you can reach out to Alison at the email address above.


Many Blessings to Clare Wellstein, Saint Rose 5th grader, on her Baptism this past Sunday.  Clare had a beautiful baptism, surrounded by friends and family! Clare's parents are thankful for everyone at Saint Rose who inspired her to make this choice. She truly feels God's love through her teachers and friends at school.

Congratulations Clare!

Family Service Event on December 2

During Advent and Christmas, we remember that the Holy Family was forced to leave its homeland.  They became refugees in a foreign land and depended on the kindness of others.   During December we will focus on the work of mercy, "Welcome the Stranger."

Global Connections in Bowling Green is an organization that welcomes people from other nations and fosters cultural exchanges and opportunities to Welcome the Stranger.   Many of the participants are international students or faculty members and families studying at the university.

On  Sunday, December 2,  Saint Rose families will host an Advent Event for members of Global Connections.   Together, our school families and members of Global Connections will enjoy crafts, activities, and food designed to promote cultural exchange and friendship and help to share our customs.

Please consider participating in this event on  Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1:30-3:30 pm in Bowling Green.  More details will be sent to those who register regarding location and activities.

Guidance Lesson Recap: Sense of Humor
This month's lesson focused on the Lifeskill of Sense of Humor in knowing when to be funny without hurting others' feelings. We discussed many situations can be tough and having a sense of humor is a great way to push through these situations.
Grade K & 1: We read the book There Once was a Cowpoke Who Swallowed an Ant by Hellen Ketteman. The silly story was about a cowboy who struggled with many different animals and having many silly ways to solve the problem of getting rid of the ant. As a class, we discussed w hat sense of humor means and how to be silly in appropriate ways with friends.
Grade 2: We read the story The Jester Has Lost His Jingle by David Saltzman. The story was about a jester who lost his job in the kingdom and went out to find laughter and cheer again in the world. As a class, we talked about many ways we can use sense of humor to get through tough situations and how to appropriately be funny at school and at home.
Grade 3- We read the book Old MacDonald had a Dragon by Ken Baker. This silly story was about a dragon that gobbled up many of the animals on the farm and how sense of humor used to resolve the problem. As a class, we talked about positive ways to show a sense of humor in our daily lives with friends and family.

Grades 4 & 5- The classes continued to pilot the Be Kind Program in their lessons in the classroom. The kids seem to be learning many great things about being kind and a good friend with the curriculum.
Grades 6-8. As a class, we discussed many ways sense of humor is important in our daily lives. We discussed how many situations do not go as planned, and it is important to incorporate sense of humor as a way to get through various situations. Students watched a video that taught about proper table manners and etiquette and how to use them in every day life. The video also emphasized what not to do and how sense of humor can be present in every day situations, even at the dinner table. Students then had the opportunity to practice using proper table manners and give advice to those who were not following proper protocol. It was quite comical!

In the wake of the last 2 hurricanes, we had to cancel over 200 blood drives in their paths, accounting for over 7200 pints of blood that went uncollected.  The red Cross is going into the holiday season with an expectation to be 124,000 pints of blood short by January. Currently, there is less than a 3 day supply at our hospitals.  Please donate if you are able.  For eligibility questions call 866-236-3276. 

Employment Opportunity

Athletic Director - CYO Athletics
Part-Time (time varies throughout the year)
Average of 10 hours/ week (5-20 hours during seasons)
The CYO Parish Athletic Director (AD) is an adult leader of the entire parish athletic program. This person should be organized, respected in the community, able to communicate effectively, mediate disputes and someone who cares about the well-being of the youth above all else. The AD ensures that the athletic programs are a part of the faith building efforts of the parish, are part of a comprehensive ministry to youth, and are within the programmatic guidelines of the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO). The AD is also responsible for:

  • Recruiting coaches and reviewing their expectations, duties, and responsibilities.

I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all who have supported me these past four years as St. Rose Parish Athletic Director. Due to personal reasons, I will be stepping down from the Athletic Director position. I have thoroughly enjoyed the many positive moments serving as minister to the youth in our CYO sports programs as well as serving alongside the many coaches and commissioners who spend countless hours giving of their time and knowledge of their individual sport. I intend to assist the parish staff in transitioning a new Athletic Director into the position.

Letters From Haiti

Last year, our students wrote to students at Saint Rose School, our sister school in Haiti. Recently, those students returned the gesture and wrote back sharing their thanks and prayers for our students and school. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing these letters. Please take a minute to read.

Saint Rose School theme for the year:

Love Life!

November's theme is End of Life Issues -- 
Death, Euthanasia, and the Death Penalty

As the liturgical year draws to a conclusion, the church focuses on the "end time" as we start the month with the Feast of All Saints and All Souls.

This month we will focus on End of Life Issues -- Death, Sacrament of the Sick, Euthanasia, and the Death Penalty.

The Vatican has recently clarified its teaching on the Death Penalty.  Please CLICK  HERE for an EWTN interview that explains the Church's teaching.

Saint Rose Peace and Justice Committee promotes restitution from and conversion of death row inmates with a publication called "Compassion."  Death row inmates write articles and poems for the publication.  Proceeds from the sales of the publication are donated to the victims' families.

Charity of the month:  
Saint Rose Cemetery Fund
(began by the school children two years ago)

This fund will be used to help with burial costs in the Saint Rose Cemetery for families with financial difficulties.  This is a corporal work of mercy to "Bury the Dead".  

Please encourage your children to be generous in their donations 
at the weekly school Masses.
