Grandparents and Special Friends Lunch


In honor of Grandparents & Special Friends Day at Holy Rosary School, please consider a DONATION!

The last week of January, or first week of February, is a special time at Holy Rosary School because it’s the week we celebrate Catholic Schools! Every day there is a special activity to celebrate our community. On the Wednesday of Catholic Schools Week, Holy Rosary hosts our annual Grandparents & Special Friends Lunch. It is a lovely tradition of generations enjoying an afternoon together. The day starts at 11:30 in the church with entertainment and speeches by select students. Then the grandparents and special friends head over to the school to meet their student(s) for lunch. After lunch, school tours and pictures are on the itinerary. It is a day for both students and grandparents and special friends to look forward to.

We are looking forward to the day when this tradition will continue,  Until then, please enjoy this video to celebrate our Grandparents & Special Friends.
