We had an exceptionally wonderful week at SRL, and fully celebrated Catholic Schools Week. I am sure that your children told you all about it. A very special Thank You to our PTA President, Mrs.Gina Mancini, who diligently brought our vision for Catholic Schools Week alive! We truly appreciate your input and hardwork. Thank you to the PTA team of parents, and all volunteer parents who helped at every event, and with our lunch program. An old proverb states, It takes a village to raise a child, and most certainly that has come to fruition at St. Rose of Lima School. The hard work of all of our parents has contributed to a flourishing school environment where our students can realize their full potential. Thank you to Mrs. Losche, our music instructor for the wonderful Patriotic Performance for Grandparents’ Day. You have truly captivated the talents of our students! It was truly beautiful and memorable. Thank you to our hardworking Faculty and Staff who work tirelessly each day to ensure the success of our students. Also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our pastor, Fr. James Conover, for his continuous support of our school. Many people do not realize the success of a Catholic parochial school is greatly dependent upon the vision and hardwork of the pastor. In Fr. Jim we have someone who not only offers personal support to us but is willing to direct parish assets to support all of our endeavors financially as well. When we all work together we create a dynamic school community where everyone thrives, students and adults alike! I have listed some important information for you below.
- All parents are entitled to apply for tuition assistance for the next school year, and can do so through the FACTS program. This information is listed on our school website for your convenience. There are two rounds, and it is always better financially to apply in Round I which closes on March 1st. Round II runs concurrently and closes on May12th. Only parents with students in Grades Kindergarten through Grade 8 may apply. Pre-Kindergarten is excluded.
- While we have received many returns, this is just a reminder to those who have not already done so to send in your re-registration forms as soon as possible. We need your information to make good financial decisions as far as staffing and ordering for the next school year. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
- During the month of February you will receive your child’s Star Assessment scores for Round 2 of our yearly testing.
- Just a reminder that Touring Tuesdays for February are scheduled for the 14th and 28th. Please tell your family and friends who wish to enroll their children at SRL that they can call the school office to make an appointment to tour our school from 9 am to 11 am on these days in February. Because it is important for us to monitor who is in the building, we can only provide tours for new families that schedule ahead of time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing all of you another great week!
