Dear SRLA Families,
Failing to learn anything from Covid-19, we planned to switch over to winter uniforms just in time for photo day, October 19th (rain date 10/21). Unfortunately, the delay in winter uniforms coming from Flynn and O’Hara necessitates we change the winter uniform date to 11/29/21
So, what does this mean?
Thank you for your patience,
The Annual Farmers' Market will be in the gym.

Dear Middle School Parents,
I am happy to announce that working on the school newspaper for the 2021-2022 school year has begun! The Raven’s Nest school newspaper will be published three times this year once in the seasons of fall, winter, and spring. As of October 4th, students will be able to participate as “journalists” in various ways such as an editor, writer, illustrator, photographer, or co coordinator.
As discussed in class, meetings will be virtual (no need to worry about pick up) each Monday from 3:30-4:00 through a Google Meet link that is posted on Google Classroom. Many of your children have signed up for a position and are very excited to be a part of this collaborative effort.
We will be working hard to bring many stories about the events happening at SRLA to the community and cannot wait to bring it one the best school newspapers to life with all our many talents and skills!

The Archdiocese of Newark has transitioned to NWEA MAP Growth for its testing program in the elementary schools. The fall 2021 window for MAP Growth testing in the Archdiocese of Newark elementary schools is from October 4th through October 22nd. St. Rose of Lima will test from October 6th through October 8th. This leaves us plenty of time for make-ups and scheduling challenges. You cannot prepare for the MAP testing, other than enjoy a good night’s sleep and have breakfast!
Testing will be carried out for grades two through seventh (eighth grade will not need to test in the fall as they will be taking the HSPT on November 5th (Eighth grade will resume MAP testing for the winter and spring cycles).
MAP Growth is a computer adaptive test created by NWEA that students take at various times during the school year (fall, winter, spring). Computer adaptive tests adjust to each student’s learning level, providing a unique set of test questions based on the student’s responses to previous questions. If the student answers a question correctly, the next question is more challenging. If they answer incorrectly, the next question is easier. This results in a detailed picture of what the student knows and is ready to learn—whether it is on, above, or below their grade level. The results provide teachers with information to help them deliver appropriate content for each student and monitor each student’s academic growth over time.
The MAP Growth tests are untimed. Most students complete each subject test in less than an hour. Students who do not finish the assessment in the time scheduled for the testing session are able to resume the test at another time without the loss of test responses already submitted. The reports obtained from MAP Growth testing provide information about the student’s level of achievement and his or her growth over time.
