St. Rita School News: Sept. 26, 2017

Dear SRS Parents,

Once again the generosity of the St. Rita School community has been overwhelming. Your tremendous support was evidenced in the $2300 donation to the NCEA’s Student-Helping -Student initiative for hurricane relief, the walkathon donations of food, drink and money, and also the time and effort put into making our walkathon event so successful. We exceeded our walkathon goal by over $5000. THANK YOU!

Thank you also to all our parents who attended our Peace Day Prayer Service. It was a beautiful way to encourage our students to help spread peace and goodwill throughout our community. I hope their rocks have been shared. I invite you all to join us for First Friday Mass on Friday, October 6 @ 8:45 in St. Rita Church. Our school leaders, the 8 th grade will be in charge of the Mass.

Congratulations to those members of our faculty who were recognized yesterday for their years of service to Catholic education here in the diocese-Joanna Robinson and Kim Lewis (10 years), Linda Doucette and Delores Fortuna (15 years), Nicole Truhart (20 years), Bess McGrath (25 years) and Patty Landino (40 years). These teachers have dedicated their careers nurturing your children and preparing them to live and share the love of Christ to all they encounter. Please be sure to congratulate them.

Beginning this Monday, October 2 students must be wearing the winter uniform. Please refer to the family handbook for specific uniform questions. Next Wednesday, October 4, school is closed so that all teachers can attend the Catholic Educations Faith Formation Conference. Next Wednesday evening we will be hosting the Catholic High School night open to students and parents in grades 6-8 beginning at 6:30. On Thursday, October 5 our students will see a production of St. Therese of Lisieux (the Little Flower) courtesy of Fr. Ed Nadolny’s Good News Fund. We are grateful to Fr. Ed for his kindness.

Thank you for entrusting your child/ren to our care. Enjoy the beautiful summer-like weather for a few more days. Have a great week.

God Bless,
Mrs. Tiezzi
