Sunday, September 25th
Good Morning, Everyone,
It is almost unbelievable that we are entering the last week of September already! We had a great month, and we are all looking forward to another productive week of teaching and learning, and fun happenings at St. Rose of Lima School. Please see information below.
1.) We had a beautiful Back to School Mass this past Tuesday. Thank you, Fr. Jim, for being our spiritual leader. Thank you to all our faculty members who helped plan the mass and prepare our students for participating. A special mention of our volunteer cantor, student, Vincent Armenti, you sang beautifully, and we are so proud of you! This was our first mass as a school since the pandemic hit, and it truly was an exceptional experience. We were very happy to see so many parents join us in worship.
2.) Back to School Night was a great success! Our new format was commended by many. We had a robust attendance, and it was a good way to begin the school year. Thank you to our faculty who had to do double duty that day. We appreciate your hard work and many efforts on behalf of our students.
3.) This past Friday night, PTA sponsored, our first Parents Night Out, and it was a great success! We had15 parent volunteers, and 40 students from grades PreK through 6 attended, and really had fun. Students had dinner, did crafts, played musical chairs and karaoke.
A Few Reminders…
There will be a general PTA meeting on Wednesday, September 28th at 6pm in the cafeteria. All are welcome to attend, and we need your help. We will be coordinating events by grade for the school year. Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting.
Our Color Run scheduled for October 19th is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and it is off to a great start! We already have 79 out of 244 students who have registered. We have donations from 10 out of 50 states. Our students really enjoy this event, and we encourage everyone to register and participate.
Don’t forget the Family Fun Concert scheduled for October 7th, and Trunk or Treat on October 21st. More information will follow.
The education and well-being of your children is our greatest pursuit. On September 23rd we celebrated the feast day of St. Padre Pio. I would like to share some of his thoughts and teachings with you as we enter the final week of September. My past, O Lord, to your Mercy; my present, to your Love; my future to your Providence! Do not worry over things that generate preoccupation or anxiety. One thing only is necessary: to lift up your spirit and love God. If you have any questions or concerns, I am always available to you by email at email@example.com.
