Dear Saint Rose Families,

I am attending a diocesan conference on addiction today.  The conference is filled with pastors, principals and parish employees from around our diocese.  Addiction is a horrible mental disease that plagues our communities.  It is good to see our diocese discuss the implications of this disease and what we can do within our faith to support our families and combat it.  One of the presenters, Mark A. Hurst, MD and Director of the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services highlighted the importance of faith and family, along with many other resources, to combat this epidemic.  He stated that when parents talk to their children about drugs and alcohol that adolescent usage decreases by 50%.  There is a correlation between reduced substance usage and how often families eat dinner together. Those who eat dinner together throughout the week are less likely to see substance usage.  Involving children in extracurricular activities correlates with decreased usage.  Families that attend church regularly are less likely to be addicted to drugs and alcohol.  Teens who regularly attend church are less likely to use.  Parents who report religion as important saw an 80% decrease in suicidal ideology compared to parents who do not feel that religion is important. Finally, please clean out any unused or leftover medication from your homes. 
There are many factors that contribute to drug use, abuse and addiction. It is a very complicated issue for our times.  That said, attending church and spending quality time with our families are important factors to help us armor our families against this epidemic. 

Sincerely, 
Bryon Borgelt
 
 

Transportation Reimbursement
Districts outside of Perrysburg, Eastwood and Rossford 

Students who have a home district outside of Perrysburg, Eastwood and Rossford are eligible for a transportation reimbursement from their home district. This can amount to a couple of hundred dollars per student per year.  Many districts require you to contact them early in the year for budget reasons. TPS has a deadline of September 10. Please contact your local transpo rtation office as soon as possible to request these funds. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE PARENT/STUDENT HANDBOOK

BIRTHDAY TREATS

Birthday treats/healthy snacks/holiday party treats may be brought to school.  If the treat is for a child's birthday, parents must notify the teacher prior to the day the treat is brought in.  Parents should contact the classroom teacher 24 hours prior to bringing the treat to class.  A student may need to celebrate his/her birthday on another day due to a special event.
 
To better ensure the safety of all of our students, any food item that is to be distributed during school must be commercially produced and labeled  with a list of ingredients (no homemade treats are permitted).  The food item will be distributed at the discretion of the child's teacher. 
 
A list of allergens will be shared by the teacher.
 
Although we try to provide the safest environment for all of our students, Saint Rose cannot guarantee the food safety of any food item that is brought to school for distribution.  Families of students that have allergies are encouraged to send in some special treats to be kept by the teachers for any special dietary needs their children have. These treats must be shelf stable. The teacher will keep the snacks for one year to distributed when food treats are brought in.
 
Please note, that instead of a food item, families may send in other items.  Some ideas include:
  • A favorite book to be donated to the class
  • Stickers
  • A small craft for the class to make
  • School supplies
Please reach out to your child's teacher for any other ideas.


POLICY FOR USE OF CELL PHONES, MP3 PLAYERS (iPODS), 
HAND-HELD GAMES, ETC.

Saint Rose School understands that technology changes constantly and that many students own some of the current technological conveniences in life such as cell phones, smart watches, MP3 Players (iPods), hand-held games and personal electronics.  The faculty and staff of Saint Rose believe that school is not a place where these types of items are needed however, we respect a parent's decision to allow their child to have a cell phone, smart watch, iPod, hand-held game or personal electronic device. . 
 
Should a student need to use a telephone while at school, they are welcome to use the phone in the school office.  If a student is working with a teacher after school, the teachers' rooms have telephones.  Being a Catholic school, we are extremely concerned about the improper use of cell phones.  Many phones are also cameras, and inappropriate pictures, or pictures, which lead to bullying activity, are a main concern.
 
Music on personal devices should be appropriate for all ages if it is to be played at Saint Rose.  Please keep handheld gaming devices at home to prevent damage or loss. 
 
The  use of cell phones, MP3 players (iPods), smart watches, hand-held games, and personal electronics is not allowed anywhere on the Saint Rose School campus, unless a student has specific permission from a teacher, administrator, or supervisor.  If one of these items is brought to school, it must be turned off and kept in the student's book bag.  The student will take full responsibility for any of these items, which they bring to school.  Saint Rose School accepts no responsibility for items lost or taken from lockers or book bags. 

Thank you!

ClassMass 

THIS SUNDAY  9am Mass

All 7th & 8th grade Saint Rose School families, Parish School of Religion families, and Home School families are invited to join in prayer together.

Reception immediately following in the Sacred Heart Center (School Cafeteria)


CLASS MASS PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Saint Rose Parish and School will continue the ClassMass in the 2018-19 school year.   

Each ClassMass is organized to help promote fellowship among children of the same grade level and their families by inviting them to join together for  Mass and then a short reception afterwards.  During the school year, each grade (or two) will have a designated day at a  9:00 a.m.  Sunday  Mass to pray and worship together followed by an opportunity to socialize.

Two parents (one from Saint Rose School and one from PSR or  Home School) are needed to help to coordinate the short reception for each  Class Mass .  
   


It's that time of year again! 

Dads are welcome and encouraged to join their children for a donut, juice/water and coffee before school. 

We offer this on two days and divide the school alphabetically.  However, if you can't make it on your "assigned" day, no problem!  Just sign up for the day that works best for you.  Also, if dad is unable to attend, grandfathers, step-dads, or uncles are welcome in their absence. 

It's important to sign up however, so we can get an accurate donut count.


This is a free event sponsored by the Pirates Parents Club
