Christmas Gift Idea: Please make a donation in my name to the Saint Rose School Annual Fund. This would be a great honor for me. Thank you in advance!
Favorite Saint Rose memory: There are many great Saint Rose School memories(Opening day in 1999, Mardi Gras parades in the back of school, first graduation day, etc.) but the moving of the flag pole and first Veteran's Day Flag Ceremony has to be one of my favorites.
