We invite you to meet our teachers, see our classrooms, and check out the technology we offer as early as the preschool level. Talk to our students and find out why they love Holy Rosary School. We offer up to five days of pre-school per week, with prices variable dependent upon how many days you chose, and full day kindergarten. Holy Rosary School also offers an exceptional hot lunch program which is available from pre-school through eighth grade. We also offer After-Care to accommodate families whose needs for child care extend beyond traditional school hours. We provide a supportive, safe, and loving environment with a family feel and exceptional academics. So come see what we have to offer. We might just be the right fit for your family!

It is a great day filled with high energy and lots of excitement. So please save the date, Friday, May 10, and come join the fun. In the past, many of our neighborhood friends have stood on their porches to cheer on the children. You don’t want to miss it.

Labels & Box Tops

These programs enable us to provide educational resources that may be unaffordable through our regular budget. They offer exciting merchandise like computers, software, sports equipment, reference materials, science and art items, even musical instruments.
Please continue your support of these programs by sending in your labels to the school office or by placing them in the church vestibule. If you have any questions, please contact the school’s office.
Also, please check labels for expiration dates. They can be sent in immediately and processed before they expire; there is no need to wait until you accumulate a quantity.
