On Friday, October 30, 2020 SRLA will host a Spooktacular Halloween just for our students!!

We will not require anything from our parents but will require that our students come to school dressed in costume for the day if they so desire.

The costume must be practical and not include any of the following elements: No clowns, plastic masks, only CDC Acceptable masks, fake blood, guts, gore, weapons or inappropriate dress/costume. SRLA reserves the right to call home for appropriate clothing should any costume be deemed inappropriate.

Students will receive a special goody bag prepared by our office on Friday afternoon

Thank you for your understanding!! Have a safe Halloween

On Wednesday, October 29, 2020 SRLA will host our First Ever

Back To School Night SRLA Connection

Our teachers will utilize this opportunity to connect with you again, a second time this year, to meet their Cohort parents “Face-to-Face” on Wednesday from 7:00pm-8:00pm via Zoom.

Format:

1. All parents will receive every teachers’ Zoom address on Tuesday, 10/28

2. Parents will log into their child’s homeroom (any of your children’s homeroom if you have more than one child at SRLA, at 7:00 pm.

The evening will have four (4) 15 minute sessions during the hour-long event.

3. Session I. 7:00-7:15 pm: Once logged into homeroom, parents will view Father Harahan and Principal Underwood welcome and offer an evening prayer for us to pray together.

Sessions 2, 3, and 4 will consist of three- identical 15- minute presentations from your child/children’s Cohort teacher.

**This allows you to visit more than one Cohort presentation, should you have more than one student at SRLA.

During your Zoom session, I suggest that you type questions in the chat as they come up for the teacher to address at that time or reach out to you personally at a later time.

**Our next Virtual opportunity will be our Parent-Teacher Conferences in early December, once the first trimester grades are sent home. Your Cohort teachers will again reach out to you and set-up individual appointments. Again, please reach out the Specials teachers at any time for a conference or chat.

We all know times are not normal and I think a space to come together more often could be beneficial.

I hope we can continue to foster our visual and virtual relationships and communication this year!

Sincerely,
Principal Underwood

Dear Parents,

Just a reminder that tomorrow, Friday October 16th, is a 12:10 dismissal day.

It is not a Dress Up Day.

For new families, a "Dress Up Day" is when the students may come to school out of uniform in regular clothing or Spirit Wear in return for a $1.00 donation.

There will be aftercare, but please note:

There is no cafeteria, therefore anyone staying for aftercare must bring their own lunch and a drink.

Thank you,

Principal Tina Underwood

We are bummed to deliver this news, but we've decided to move the Fall Food Truck Festival held in the Saint Rose parking lot to next Friday, 10/23, due to the rainy forecast.

The welcome reception for new families will also be moved to next Friday and take place right before the festival at 6:30 PM.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and we look forward to coming together for this fun event next week! 

Don't forget to buy your tickets and volunteer

To All Parents,  

I ask for your cooperation in not dropping off or picking up or parking in the Weichert Realtor parking lot at anytime. 

It is a very dangerous situation and I hate to think of what might happen.

Thank you, 

Tina Underwood, Principal
