Holy Rosary School on Stephenson Street in Duryea announces the following:
The Holy Rosary School family thanks everyone for their prayers and expressions of sympathy on the loss of the beloved pastor of Nativity of Our Lord parish, Father Charles W. Rokosz. Father was a member of the Holy Rosary School administrative team for many years and also served on the Holy Redeemer System Board. Father's commitment to Catholic education was unwavering; his care and concern for our children, inspiring. To honor him, and his faithfulness to our school and our children, we have created a scholarship in his memory. Beginning in the 2013-2014 school year, The Father Charles W. Rokosz Scholarship will provide tuition assistance for families experiencing financial hardship. If you would like further information on this scholarship, please call the school office.
Our uniform giveaway on Aug. 2 was a huge success and we still have many "nearly new" uniform jumpers, skirts, blouses, shirts and pants available. During these last weeks of summer, stop by from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and browse through our uniform selection displayed in the gym. Other sizes may be available.
