Newsletter Week of April 20th

Hello 4B Families!

I hope you all had a wonderful spring break! Welcome back. Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we go into our last eight weeks of remote learning.

Thanks for continuing to visit the website. This is where you can find updates about Holy Rosary and 4th Grade (unrelated to remote learning and assignments).

All assignment and Zoom information can be found on Google Classroom.

Here is my video for the week: IMG_3994 I will post it in Google Classroom as well. Please have your children get in the habit of checking in on Google Classroom.

Auction Information!

ALOHA!  Everyone needs an escape about now, even if it’s just a virtual one. Imagine palm trees swaying in the wind, a ukulele being strummed in the background and the smell of Plumeria in the air. Holy Rosary can transport you, at least virtually, to Hawaii for 2 hours on Saturday, April 25.

Due to school being cancelled for the remainder of the year, Holy Rosary School’s largest fundraiser, our annual auction, needs to be moved ONLINE.  The great news is you don’t need a ticket to participate.  EVERYONE IS INVITED! On Thursday, April 23 over 100 items that would’ve been in the Silent Auction will be up for bid through Saturday, August 25. The Live Auction will take place over a two-hour period on the evening of Saturday, April 25.

Our Fund A Need, closing Sunday, April 26, has a new focus as we move through this new reality.  All proceeds from this year’s Fund A Need will go towards providing scholarships for those students in our community whose families are facing financial hardships. We are blessed to be a part of an amazing community at HRS and communities take care of one another, so join us in supporting the Fund A Need this year.

Battle of the Books – Coming to you soon!

Yes, you heard that right!  Battle of the Books will still take place this May using Zoom as our online platform. At this time, I’d like to find out which teams would still like to participate so that I can organize our competition rounds and prizes.  If your team would still like to participate please choose a team captain to send one email to me, Mrs. Weythman, with your team name and group member names.  I know we left school before you could finish reading all of the books, but just know we are all in the same boat and it will still be a fun experience for everyone.  We still have fun prizes for each round and there will still be a remote district final where our top HRS team will compete against the other top teams around the Archdiocese of Seattle.
I can’t wait to see who is up for the challenge and let the battle begin!
