Halloween Candy Collection
Collecting Candy Monday, November 1st – Wednesday, November 3rd
SRLA Social Outreach will be collecting Halloween candy donations from SRLA families for the Sisters of St. John’s Soup Kitchen in Newark, NJ.
**Please secure (tie-up, tape) bags of candy and instruct your children not to eat the candy when bringing it to school. We want to make sure that our children with allergies are protected from peanut candies!! To protect the recipients, please send sealed candy only!

SRLA Christmas Gift Giving Program
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.
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
Thank you for your generosity and cooperation! We appreciate our teachers and our parents!
