It's time for that great fall tradition: WestFest! Your WestFest committee has been working hard all summer to prepare a wonderful event. We are reaching out to the larger West Seattle community via the local schools, as well as the West Seattle Blog and Facebook. Tell your friends and family and help us welcome our school and parish members, neighbors, friends and families from all over West Seattle! WestFest begins Friday evening at 6:00 and ends at 10:00. The Saturday hours are from 10:00 in the morning until 10:00 in the evening.
Volunteer positions are open and posted - there are only a few spots left! Thank you for your amazing response! There are two different links to choose from - one for the parents here and the other for 7/8th graders here. Please choose the appropriate one because a parent can't work a student shift or vice versa. Thanks! Be mindful of what shift you sign up for - we need everyone who volunteers to work their shift. If for some reason you are not able to show up, you must find a replacement to work your shift for you. Thank you!
Click on "Sponsorship" on the menu bar at the top. Thanks to Annabel Quintero and Randy Rodriguez for all their dedication to this project! Be sure to patronize the businesses that donate to Holy Rosary and let them know how much we appreciate their support!
Yum, it's the WestFest Pancake Breakfast! Come and enjoy a stack of pancakes, along with ham or bacon, served before or after Masses this coming Sunday, September 13, 8:00-12:00. Bring your appetite across the street to the school hall, along with $20 for families, $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $4 for kids, and eat your fill! Attention Seahawks Fans! The game will be broadcast live during the pancake breakfast, so you can cheer on the team and nourish yourself at the same time!
Style-up your - and your kids’ - wardrobe with a WestFest T-shirt! There are three colors to choose from to spread the WestFest spirit. Holy Rosary students can enjoy free dress with their t-shirt on Spirit Day (Friday 9/18). Shirts may be ordered using the order form that was mailed to you in the back to school packet, or at the Parent’s Club Meeting on 9/10, or at the Pancake Breakfast on 9/13, and at Back to School Night tonight.
There are three different ways to secure wristbands - the gold order form mailed to you in your back to school packet, at the Pancake Breakfast this coming Saturday September 13, and at the parents club meeting tonight.
