Dear Saint Rose Families,

After much analysis, planning and requests from parents, we are excited to announce a few new additions to our preschool offerings. These changes include both three year and four year old full day options as well as a  new four year old class.  We are excited to meet this demand for our school parents  
You will also see the tuition rates for all grades from preschool to 8th grade.  Tuition is studied by the school and parish administration.  A modest increase, along with budgetary responsibility, allows us to meet increased operating costs.  We understand that your tuition contribution is a both a sacrifice and an investment in your child's faith, academic and social formation.

As a Reminder...

Just a reminder; Mrs. Swavel, our school counselor, is on medical leave until November 12.

Thank you for your understanding

School Advisory Council Annual Survey

Dear Saint Rose School Families, 

Make sure that your voice is heard!
Our annual school survey is online starting now and will be open for just two weeks. We ask that every family take a few minutes to complete the survey. This is a very important tool to measure all aspects of our school: Catholic identity, academics, physical structure, classroom instruction, and other areas.  As members of Saint Rose School Advisory Council, we take our responsibility to heart -- to represent and support the best interests of our students and families, listen and express concerns and praises to the school, and help foster success for all Saint Rose School students. 
Most of the survey is quick, multiple choice questions, and we have provided blank space for you to type additional feedback if desired.  We want to emphasize that your answers are strictly anonymous. The experiences of our school families give each of us a unique voice, and our school survey ensures that all of our voices are heard, affirming all that is positive and successful while also working together toward continuous improvement on behalf of our students.  Thank you for supporting our school by taking the time to complete our school survey!  
The survey will be open from October 25 until November 9, 2018.  The school has a chance to earn an alternate dress day if we receive a 50% participation rate.  
The School Advisory Council Members
Abbie Schoen, Jennifer Becker, Julia Burrow, Heidi Hartman, Bill Hoyt, 
Elizabeth Ravas, Janelle Schaller, Desirae Shroyer and Jeff Stopar

Volunteers Needed

December 1st  the American Red Cross will be holding a Blood Drive in the Sacred Heart Center.  We are in need of a few volunteers to help things go smoothly at registration.  If interested please visit the sign up genius below.  Baked treats and snacks are welcome as well, if you would like to be involved but cannot volunteer or donate.

Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences

Please click on your child's teacher's name to sign up for a parent/teacher conference. 

**New for Middle School** 
Conferences will be  student led . Please plan to attend with your child for this new format. Please see explanation from Dr. Borgelt below:

I am excited to announce that this fall our middle school students will have student led conferences. This is an approach to parent/teacher conferences that puts a greater emphasis for student learning on the student. It promotes student accountability, which is a major goal for any middle school program.  

Students will create portfolios by gathering exemplary and less than perfect work examples from the quarter.  They will also fill out self reflection sheets for each subject area.  The teachers will also fill out evaluations.  These portfolios will be sent home with the students on Friday,  November 2.  The students are to review the contents of the portfolios and address any questions prior to conferences with their parents at home.  Parents and students are to then attend the 6-8 grade conferences on November 7 and 8. Teachers will be happy to review your concerns and questions at conferences, but please don't be surprised when the teacher redirects some of the questions back to the students. 

While this process is a bit different than what has been done in the past, I think that you will be impressed with the results.

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.

Below are links to articles that parents may find helpful in talking to their children about death. It is wise to have conversations about death--perhaps talking about the death of plants in this harvest season or the death of a pet--before you have to explain the death of a family member. An overall continual discussion in the belief in God and His plan for us to live eternally in joy with Him will help to frame death as not an end but a continuation in God's Plan for us. Emphasize to children that our end goal is to be Saints in Heaven, and death is an essential part of that plan. This focus on sainthood should shape our approach to everything in life.

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.
