National Theme for Catholic Schools

Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service


The new school year offers the Holy Rosary Catholic School community another opportunity to further our mission of providing quality Catholic education. All of us--faculty, staff, parents and students--look forward to this year's partnership and the blessings that will be ours!

Our theme for this year encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities—small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city and nation. Faith, knowledge and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged.

This year's new logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, which is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.
