It always seems impossible until it’s done.
I hope that your children had a good year of learning and development. I am very proud of our students and how well they have done in their studies, in their service projects and in how they have developed in their faith. Have a wonderful, restful and safe summer vacation. I would say that both teachers/staff and parents deserve a much deserved rest for all the positive work we have witnessed this year. Thank you to our teachers, staff and parents for making all this possible! Have a great year next year, the 100th of Holy Rosary School. Enjoy the celebration throughout and may God bless each of you.
Michael Cantu, Principal

Read whatever you want.
Summer reading feels different. It fosters an enthusiasm for reading. Select books that reflect a special talent, expertise, interest, desire to know, or a need for fun. Keep that energy flowing by participating in both of these reading activities.
- All students, parents and staff are urged to participate in Holy Rosary’s Summer Reading Challenge. Read 15 minutes each day during the summer break and you will be invited to a special celebration in September. A calendar and explanation will be included with each student’s report card.
