SRLA Christmas Gift Giving Program

bright_wrapped_presents.jpg

A years-long tradition at St. Rose of Lima Academy, our Christmas Gift Giving Program ensures that there is at least one present under the tree for the children of St. Rose of Lima Church in Newark and the seniors and families of St. Joseph’s Social Service Center in Elizabeth.

There are three ways for SRLA families to participate. Please sign up via Signup Genius by Monday, November 8.

1. Buy gifts for children. 

You will be provided with the name, age, and gender of each recipient of your donated gifts. Please budget $35 per gift, and drop off wrapped gifts between November 29 and December 6.

2. Send in a monetary donation.

Donations will be used by our "Volunteer Shoppers" to buy toys, coats, scarves, and mittens, to name a few of the requests we often receive from the children! Please make donations as soon as possible through SmartTuition.

3. Volunteer to be a "shopper." 

Our "volunteer shoppers" are provided with a very specific wish list to purchase 5 (or more) gifts with donated money, and will be reimbursed.

Annual H.S.A. Dues

Every year, the H.S.A. collects dues from each family to support various school activities in which all of our students participate. These activities include, but are not limited to, class parties, cultural arts programs, and Catholic Schools Week activities.

H.S.A. dues also allow the H.S.A. to show our appreciation to our teachers with, among other things, a holiday luncheon and end-of-year gifts. 

Parents do not need to take any action to pay these dues. Rather, H.S.A. dues have been added to each family’s SMART account and your dues charge will appear in the billing details of your November payment.

H.S.A. Dues for the 2021-22 school year are

·     $75 for 1 child enrolled

·     $100 for 2 children enrolled

·     $125 for 3+ children enrolled

Please contact Derek Czernikowski, SRLA Tuition Bursar, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions regarding the collection of H.S.A. dues through SMART Tuition.

Thank you for your generosity and cooperation! We appreciate our teachers and our parents!

COVID-19 Vaccination Reporting

The NJ Department of Health issued an Executive Directive and Updated Guidance for Schools on COVID-19 requiring all schools in the State to report weekly on COVID-19 cases and vaccination rates for staff and students. This information is submitted electronically and does not include any identifying information regarding students or staff, only the total number.

If you have made the decision to vaccinate your eligible child, please send proof of vaccination to Mrs. Underwood (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). This will help us to be accurate in fulfilling the NJDOH reporting requirement and will assist us in our consultation with the local health department concerning quarantine decisions should the need arise in your child’s classroom. As always, please be assured that all medical information is treated confidentially and held securely.

All parent volunteers are required to provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within the preceding week. Find out more about the requirements.

Proof of vaccination records or negative test results should be sent to the school nurse at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. All information will be kept confidential.
