Beyond the Classroom!

The benefits of learning outside the classroom are vast! Children are learning everywhere. They need a variety of learning experiences to fully develop. In our outside classroom, our students are growing in many areas such as gross and fine motor development, social-emotional development, and creative expression.

HSA Update

Hello SRS Families and Friends,

It is hard to believe we have reached the end of the school year. We have been missing you all, and we are so looking forward to seeing you and your kids in the fall! 

We wanted to share the results of the HSA fundraising efforts to keep you all in the loop. To summarize, we met 67% of our $115,000 goal; we missed three of our biggest fundraisers (the auction, tuition raffle, and play) due to the pandemic.

Thank you all so much for your support throughout the year. We hope you all have a wonderful summer break!

Uniform Swap

We will be holding a uniform swap this summer in early August. When we confirm the date, we will send out an announcement. In preparation, feel free to drop off any clean uniforms that your child has outgrown when you return the Chromebooks/iPads in June.

The Walk-A-Thon Needs You

The St. Rita School Annual Walk-a-Thon needs a chairperson (or team!). The Walk-a-Thon is a super fun, family-friendly, SRS community-building event that also happens to be one of our biggest and most critical fundraisers. Planning typically starts in July with the event taking place in late September, although the timeline (and even the format) of the event is in flux, given COVID-19 concerns. If interested in taking over the reins this year, our fantastic previous chairs are happy to meet with you. Please email us if you have any questions or if you want to help.
