St. Rita School inspires students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade eight to achieve academic excellence in a safe, nurturing and faith-filled Catholic environment.

We prepare students to be morally responsible, innovative thinkers who, in today’s technology-guided global community, live and share the Love of Christ.

From the Desk of Mrs. Tiezzi

Dear St. Rita Parents/Guardians,

Please join us for our annual celebration of National Catholic Schools Week, beginning on Sunday, January 28. We will be kicking off Catholic Schools Week (January 28-February 3) with student led Masses at all three churches. We are currently looking for students and their families willing to serve as lectors, gift bearers and altar servers for the 8:00 A.M. Mass at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, 10:00 A.M. Mass at Blessed Sacrament and 11:30 A.M. Mass at St. Rita. Please contact me directly if your child would like to be a lector or your family would like to be gift bearers. Students are asked to wear their school uniforms at Mass to show their school pride and receive a free dress down day coupon from Fr. Tiano. Please see Mrs. Tiezzi, Sr. Anne, or Mrs. Robinson at one of the Masses to receive your coupon.

This year’s CSW theme - “Catholic Schools: United in Faith and Community” - highlights our focus on academic excellence, faith development, dedication to community service, and future success. We’ve planned a variety of events to show how we are doing as a community at St. Rita School. A more detailed listing of the CSW activities will be sent home in next week’s newsletter.

God Bless,

Mrs. Tiezzi
