Holy Rosary School staff and students were busy celebrating Catholic Schools Week January 29 – February 2. The chosen theme this year for the week was Holy Rosary Students Learn, Serve, Lead and Succeed. The event is celebrated annually throughout the nation. The Catholic Schools Week is coordinated to highlight the academic achievements and Christian values that are attained through Catholic education to the youth across the nation in Catholic Schools.
Holy Rosary School also picked a theme for each day of the week for students to focus on and had projects to mirror the theme. Each morning parents, grandparents and visitors were invited to come and join in prayer led by the students at 8:15 a.m.
Principal, Sister Suzanne Walker commented on the week’s events stating, “The activities during the week give everyone an opportunity to visit the school and see the accomplishments of the students. It gives the students a sense of pride in being able to exhibit information to show what they are learning,” as she added, “All members of the Holy Rosary School Community are very grateful for the wonderful students and all of the generous support that is given that provides a solid Catholic/Christian education to the young students of the Monroe City area.”
Monday the students focused on Holy Rosary Students Learn and the prayer was led by the sixth-grade students. The second-grade students led the prayer on Tuesday with the theme for the day being Holy Rosary Students Serve. Wednesday was focused on Holy Rosary Students Lead and the kindergarten students led the morning prayer.
