Dear Parent,

The price for the Middle School Field Trip on April 28 is $88.00.  We will be departing from St. 

Rose School at approximately 6:00 A.M. and will return to school for parent pick-up by 10 P.M..

As stated at the autumn informational meeting, we will be transported by bus and eat breakfast 

along the way.  The cost of breakfast (egg sandwiches, muffins, and milk) and dinner at the 

Hard Rock Café is included in the price.  Students are asked to pack their own lunch.

After touring the JFK Museum (Columbia Point, Boston Mass. 02125>>1-866-JFK-1960) 

students will eat lunch (parent packed) and then proceed to Boston Common for a guided tour of 

the Freedom Trail narrated by a professional, period-costumed tour guide.

We will then board the bus and eat at the Hard Rock Café on the way home.  Students will call 

parents when we are about 30 minutes from the school (approximately 10 P.M.).  This trip is sure 

to be educational, inspiring, and fun!  Thank you for your cooperation and God bless.

**To all our hard- working scholars not listed above:  “The credit belongs to the man [and woman] who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself [herself] in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he [she] fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his [her] place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

( T. Roosevelt)

***************************************************************************
 
 
     Our mutual goal is to tap into your children’s  God-given strengths and aid in the development of their full spiritual and academic potential.  It has been my experience that during pre-adolescence, many children sometimes experience an urge to become isolated or more self-centered which is all part of the maturing process.  
    As parents, we sometimes become frustrated at the lack of communication during this very sensitive time.  Therefore, I encourage you to ask your student specific questions in order to foster better communication.
For example:

What  did  you study in religion, grammar, or social studies today?”

“What was the best part of your day?”

“What was the hardest thing you did today?

Did any of your classmates do anything funny?’

“What did you read today?”

“Can you show me something you learned today?’  

as opposed to  “How was your day?”

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………    

 I will be available after school Wed.. from 2- 2:30 for extra help.

Updates on what we are studying in class will be available on this website to better facilitate more in-depth discussions with your child.

                                  We open each class with the Prayer of St. Francis, Prayer of Mother Teresa, Hail Mary, or
             Classroom Vow.
 
              Be strong
                  We are not here to play, to dream, to drift,
                 We have hard work to do, and loads to lift.
                 Shun not the struggle; face it.
                 'Tis God's gift.
               Say not the world is  evil, who's to blame?
                    Fold not the hands and acquiesce...
                for shame!
                    
                             Stand up, speak out, and bravely, in God's name.

ALL OF THE GREAT

LEADERS HAVE HAD

ONE CHARACTERISTIC

IN COMMON: IT WAS

THE WILLINGNESS

TO CONFRONT

UNEQUIVOCALLY THE

MAJOR ANXIETY OF THEIR

PEOPLE IN THEIR TIME.

THIS, AND NOT MUCH

ELSE, IS THE ESSENCE OF

LEADERSHIP.
