Holy Rosary School in Duryea announces the following:

• Catholic Schools Week information

Holy Rosary School, along with all Catholic Schools across the nation, will celebrate our annual Catholic Schools' Week from Jan. 27 to Feb. 1. Information on the Opening Mass and Open House, along with the other activities that celebrate the Catholic faith, academics and service, will be sent home within the next few weeks.

• Registration

Holy Rosary is currently in the process of registering students for the 2013-2014 academic school year. The deadline for all re-registration materials is Jan. 23 and all materials must be received for re-registration to be complete. Registration will begin for new students for grades that are not yet filled on Sunday, Jan. 27.

• Gift certificate news

Vouchers will be sold from 8 to 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10 in the Holy Rosary Church basement. Just a reminder: school families may send in orders on Wednesday to be filled on Thursday.

• PTO meeting

There will be a PTO meeting from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 8. Sixth-grade parents are asked to bring refreshments to the meeting.

• Recycling

In addition to cartridge recycling HR also has 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 or contact Mrs. Skutack at 457-2553.

• Labels and box tops

Campbell's Soup labels and Box Tops for Education are being collected at Holy Rosary School. These programs enable HR to provide educational resources that may be unaffordable through the regular budget. They offer merchandise like computers, software, sports equipment, reference materials, science and art items, even musical instruments. Parents are asked to continue their support of these programs by sending in labels to the school office or by placing them in the church vestibule. If you have any questions, please contact the school's office.
