If you have not yet sent in your Re-Registration form along with the required fee please do so as soon as possible.

New Student Registration is continuing for the 2018-2019 school year by appointment only.  Be aware that PreK and K are filling up quickly so if you are planning to register another child or have friends or families who wish to register, please encourage them to do so as soon as possible.

Spring Show at Resurrection Regional School

Our Song and Dance group has been feverishly practicing for the Spring Show, The Wizard of Oz. As in previous years, there will be two shows: Saturday, April 21, 2016 at 6:30 PM and Sunday, April 22, 2016 at 2:30 PM. The ticket deadline was Friday, April 13th and no tickets will be sold at the door.

As we did for the past few years, we will also have an Art Show on both days prior to The Wizard of Oz. Doors will open one hour before the show and the artwork will be displayed in the main hallway of the school. The artwork is incredible and you will be very impressed by the quality of the student work. Plan to come out and vote for your favorite artist.

Announcing the Recipients of the Josephine C. Connelly Achievement Awards

We are thrilled to announce this year’s award winners – Carlina Hershock, Alica Jose and Mario Clark! These awards which provide four-year grants of 40% tuition are designed to recognize eighth grade students who strive to realize their full academic and human potential, demonstrate the morals and values of a good Catholic education and have a strong desire to attend an Archdiocesan High School. Carlina will be going to Archbishop Ryan, Alicia will be going to St. Hubert and Mario will be attending Roman Catholic. Congratulations to all three students! We wish you all the best as you continue your Catholic education.

Lenten Dime Race 2018

Thank you to all who brought in dimes for our annual dime race. Resurrection Regional Catholic School is thrilled to announce that we collected a total of $2,475.40. A dime doesn’t seem like much but, collectively, dimes really do add up! We owe a special thanks to our helpers who generously volunteered their time to measure and count the dimes. They are Mrs. Faustino, Mrs. Frank, Mrs. Hucke, Mrs. Malloy and Ms. Whitmore. We couldn’t have done it without them and Mrs. Toczylowski who organized the event and deposited all the dimes. Mrs. Peluzzo, Grade 3 Room 8, was the PK – Grade 4 winner for bringing in $151.30 in dimes. Ms. Rowan, Grade 6 Room 11, was the Grades 5-8 winner for bringing in $238.00 in dimes. Congratulations! Each class has earned a pizza party, date to be determined.
