Dear SRLA Families, 
There is a longstanding tradition at St. Rose of giving and volunteerism, and these two practices are a big reason why our SRLA community is so special. 
At the start of each academic year, we share a list of volunteer roles that parents, guardians, and other family members may sign up for in order to help the School with its mandatory fundraising obligations, goals, and various programming. Organized by the SRLA HSA, or Home School Association, we work together to raise funds for our operating budget, make improvements to our school, and bring in wonderful programs for our children and their continued education. 
We have a range of volunteer opportunities--from lending a hand at a school event or helping co-lead one to assisting with SRLA Athletics and social outreach, or serve as a Class Parent. Please take a moment to read about all the ways in which you can volunteer via this Sign Up Genius, and help us make this school year a big success! Volunteering at St. Rose is fun and exciting and allows us all a chance to get to know one another better while we work toward a common goal! 
If you have any questions regarding the SRLA Volunteer Sign-Up please don't hesitate to email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Thank you, and I hope you are all settling in nicely to the new school year!
