Calendar Update!

Dear SRLA Families,

 

I have two announcements/changes to make to our February school calendar:

 

1. The Monday after the Super Bowl, Monday, February, 13th, will be a sanctioned "late Day" for students who need to to arrive at school by 10:10 am. School will open as usual at 8:10am but students will be allowed to arrive late without receiving a late pass as long as they arrive by 10:10 am.

 

2. Friday, February 17th, will be a Virtual Professional Day for all teachers. 

Students will have the day off, thus creating a four-day weekend.

 

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

Catholic Schools Week

Book Fair

St. Rose of Lima Academy

2023 BOOK FAIR

The 2023 Book Fair at St. Rose of Lima Academy is in less than two weeks. The Book Fair keeps our children reading and raises funds for our school. We’re very excited to be able to host this event again this year! To make our book fair a huge success, we need the help of all of our parents AND all of our children.

This year the book fair will be held in the GYM during Catholic Schools Week! The gym offers lots of great browsing for all age groups. The children will visit the book fair early in the week with their classes, accompanied by their teacher, to prepare their WISH LISTS. Wish Lists will then be sent home in your child's folder. Check off the books you'd like them to purchase from their wish list and send back to school with a check (made payable to St. Rose’s HSA), cash or ewallet funds. (see below for more info on ewallet and setting up your child's account.)

Contactless Checkout: Scholastic’s eWALLET. With eWallet, a convenient digital payment account, your child can shop the fair cash-free. And now family, friends, and others can contribute to the eWallet! Set up your account today, so your children are ready! We’d love to encourage you to use this feature, but the Book Fair will of course also be accepting cash/checks made out to St Rose’s HSA/credit card payment. Book Fair volunteers will fulfill these orders and books will be sent to your child’s classroom.

This year the teachers will also have an opportunity to create eWallets. With eWallet you can designate a dollar amount for your child’s classroom and the teachers will be able to pick out books for the classroom, completely tax free.

eWALLET Set Up:

https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bf/stroseoflimaschool9

Book Fair Hours: The Book Fair will be open on Sunday for parents who would like to shop with their children on Sunday January 29, 2022 from 12:30 - 1:30. The children will shop with their classes from January 30 - February 1.

VOLUNTEER: A Sign-up Genius will go out tomorrow for volunteering slots. Please sign up to help. Please take note of the time slots your child’s class will be visiting the book fair if you’d like to specifically help with their class. There are also setup and cleanup hours available.

Please remember: All volunteers must have an active certification from the "Protecting God's Children" course.

THANK YOU for your support.
