Welcome Back to School!

NEWTOWN—Students at St. Rose of Lima in Newtown were met on their first day of school with a VIP greeting committee of Mr. Gjoka, Msgr. Weiss, Sr. Thaddeus and Mrs. Bokuniewicz. The campus was filled with welcome signs and balloons!

Students in K-4 arrived happily on Monday for a half-day and students in 5-8 arrived on Tuesday, also in good spirits.

Monsignor Bob and Mr. Gjoka visited every classroom to deliver a warm welcome message. Children had a chance for mask breaks at outdoor recess.

About St. Rose School

St. Rose of Lima Catholic School is a Christ-centered community committed to academic excellence in an atmosphere that nurtures the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and moral development of each child.

The dedicated staff partners with families to prepare students to be responsible leaders in a global society by fostering integrity, service and respect. By creating a sense of family where all are welcome, St. Rose School encourages each child to develop his/her gifts and to become Christ’s compassionate heart and hands in the world. Their learning community is centered on four core values. These are: respect, integrity, academic excellence and service.

The community’s spirituality is fostered through close connection with St. Rose of Lima Church. Students attend weekly Mass and we are blessed by the continual presence of Monsignor Robert Weiss and the other parish priests.
