St. Rose students are barking up the right tree! Four St. Rose students received prizes from the Allied Rockaway Foundation for Animal Recreation and Fitness (ARF-ARF) Art Contest.
The 8th grade students of St. Rose performed a puppet show for grades PK-1 on March 29. The 8th grade has been diligently working in their art class since September, making their original puppets and scenery from scratch. Their performance of “The Ugly Duckling” was a hit and an important lesson was taught to the youngsters.

St. Rose of Lima students raised $400 to help out a small town in Guatemala. Kittle and DeClemente traveled to Guatemala as part of an Alternative Spring Break. They were part of a group that worked on building and education. The students hand delivered the donation from St. Rose and were given a handmade blanket as a “thank you” to the school.
