Friday, April 10th

Hello 4A Families,

I am in awe of all of you and the hard work you’ve done for the oral biography presentations. I truly appreciate all of your efforts, and I really enjoyed my week of listening to all of the extraordinary presentations. Bravo!  I will be busy working on getting the grade sheets to you (guess what, you all did awesome).  I do need all of the bibliography templates and the self reflection form. Please submit them on Seesaw. You can access PDF’s of them on the Oral Bio Tab.

Today, there are no new assignments. At school, we would have had a “no technology” day with the lights off. I encourage you to do something similar at home (in a way that works for you!). “Fasting from devices, TV, etc. for just a bit of the day. School would have dismissed silently at noon.  We encourage all families to engage in five minutes of silence at noon.

You can pray with the Stations of the Cross here.

Good Friday Mass is streaming at 3:00. There are directions on how to stream at:

Please enjoy your Spring Break next week.  I wouldn’t be your teacher if I didn’t strongly encourage you to read each day and take time to visit Xtramath and Freckle so that your skills remain sharp.  Your teachers will be working to build new lessons and projects over the break, and we will be ready to join together again on April 20th.  I will be posting some information on the 4A website for you early next week.

I want you to know how much I care about all of you (students and families).  I miss being with you in the classroom so much, and I am so proud of how hard you are working to keep up your studies.

Have a joyous Easter and a restful Spring Break!

Ms. Simpson




Finally, the auction is still happening! Here is all of the information below:


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 3 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 all 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 Sunday, April 26. The Live Auction will take place over a three-hour period on the evening of Saturday, April 25.

Our Fund A Need 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.

Additional information will come out over the next few weeks leading up to the start of the online auction.
