Race for Education

The Race for Education is one of the highlights of the year for our students and their families, while also a fun way for us to earn money for our school. There are many ways in which you can help make the Race for Education a success. We are in need of record keepers to tabulate donations on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from April 4 through May 10. Additionally, approximately 50 volunteers are needed to safely and efficiently coordinate the race on race day. Save the date, Friday, May 10, and come join the fun. I

Spring soncert

Our annual Spring Concert featuring fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh grade students will be held at 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 28 at Holy Rosary School, Duryea. Due to a scheduling conflict, our spring concert will now be held in our school, not at Holy Redeemer High School, as was previously announced.

Gift certificate news

Gift certificate sales are held in the Holy Rosary Church Hall from 8 to 10 a.m. every Thursday. School families may send in orders on Wednesday to be filled on Thursday.


In addition to cartridge recycling we also have cell phone recycling. Select cell phones can be dropped off in the same location and recycled for credit. For more information or for a list of qualifying cartridges, visit contact Mrs. Skutack at 457-2553.

Labels & Box Tops

Campbell’s Soup labels and Box Tops for Education are being collected at Holy Rosary School. These programs enable us to provide educational resources that may be unaffordable through our regular budget. They can be sent in immediately and processed before they expire; there is no need to wait until you accumulate a quantity.
