This change affects for both virtual and in seat students.

‍NED’s Mindset Mission is a positive behavior program. A world-class performer takes our students on an interactive educational journey filled with storytelling, illusions, yo-yo tricks and humor. NED’s message and memorable friends inspire students, promote academic achievement, and support our school goals.

Dear SRLA Parents,

As part of a traditional St. Rose of Lima Academy school year, everyone would be invited to the annual eighth grade pinning ceremony always held on the Wednesday of Catholic Schools Week.

This year, of course, will be different.

I ask that all eighth grade students dress in their formal, full winter uniform on Wednesday, February 3rd for a simple pinning ceremony to be held in our church from 10:30-11:00 am.

The Pinning Ceremony marks the half-way point of our students’ final year at the Academy for the graduating class. The pin is given to our students as a remembrance of their time at SRLA.

EIGHTH GRADERS AND THEIR PARENTS ONLY are invited to the ceremony. There will not be a full mass, just a blessing of the pins and the presentation of the pins.

Eighth Graders only will be invited to a simple brunch which will be held in the Gym.

Virtual learners are invited to join us in person or attend on a screen in the church. Mr. McCourt will be recording the ceremony, which can be viewed again and again and forwarded to your loved ones at any time.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions.

Thank you,
Principal Tina Underwood

There is no Lunch program and there is NO AFTERCARE.

We will monitor the progress of the storm. If the forecast changes, there is a possibility that schools will be closed. We will alert you of that change as early as possible. Please monitor our usual notification systems, and make preparations for the possibility for schools to be closed.

Dear St. Rose Families,

St. Rose of Lima Parish is an active member of the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking, and January each year is designated as Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Our parish record of accomplishments in support of this cause is briefly outlined in the flyer below.

Due to the constraints imposed upon us by the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to gather together to replicate our past achievements. However, we are able to again pick up the phone at home and make a call in support of pending New Jersey legislation. Last year you called legislators asking them to vote in favor of a bill known as A883. Your calls, for which we thank you, were so effective that the bill was passed by both the Assembly and the Senate unanimously! The bill awaits the Governor’s signature to make it law.

Please call Governor Phil Murphy at 609-777-2500 to urge him to sign A883 during January, Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Your call will be a contribution to our parish effort on behalf of trafficking victims.

If you would like to learn more about the NJ Coalition, and/or to make a donation to support their important work, please be sure to check out their newly designed website here: safernj.org.

Thank you for your continuing support!
