Good Morning, Everyone,
 
We had another good week at SRL. I hope you had the opportunity to visit our Drive-Up Book Fair on Wednesday evening, and wave to Clifford! A few updates for you below:
 
1.) Just a reminder that students may wear their Halloween costumes to school on Friday, October 30th. Please no weapon like objects! Students who are wearing masks with their costume are still required to wear their daily mask to accompany it. Our PTA will be treating students to individually wrapped donuts that are vanilla frosted with sprinkles from Dunkin Donuts, pumpkins to decorate, and the opportunity to Guess the Candy in the Jar Contest. If you have not already sent your child in with their own art supplies, please do so. Students will need their own art supplies to decorate pumpkins on Friday. Students will also be treated to a movie during the school day in their individual classrooms. Our Student Council will be giving teachers prizes to award students who win for their costume choices.
 
2.) Don't forget that our first school sponsored Drive-In Movie is scheduled for Friday, October 30th. We are sold out and have a waiting list so if you purchased tickets, and will be unable to attend, please contact Mrs. Amanda Sergi at Pta@stroseoflima.com.
 
3.) Just a reminder that there is still time to donate food to the Crop Walk. The following items are requested: pasta and sauce, peanut butter and jelly, rice, beans, cereal, canned fruit, fruit juices, canned chicken or tuna, chili, beef ravioli, canned vegetables and cooking oil. Please drop off any of these items that you would like to donate at the entrance door in the U in back of the school, You can ring the door bell and let us know that they are there, or send them in with your children. Please do not bring them to the rectory as I previously requested. Also, please go to www.crophungerwalk.org/freeholdnj to donate, and join the St. Rose of Lima Church team to help alleviate hunger in our community. Thank you in advance!
 
4.) Thank you everyone who has complied with the temperature checks and the answering of the Daily Health Check in Genesis. We have helped many parents who had difficulties succeed this week. There are still some people who are ignoring us, and the need to do the Daily Health Check. We are here to help you, so please contact us. Starting on Monday, October 26th, we will no longer be able to do temperature checks in school. Students without the Daily Form completed in Genesis will be sent home.
 
5.) Thank you to our generous parents and PTA who donated snacks to our faculty and staff! They were thoroughly enjoyed on Snack Wednesday!
 
Thought for the Week:
 
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
 
Wishing each of you a good week!
Ms. Reimer
