HOLY ROSARY ALL SAINTS CATHOLIC SCHOOL

All Saints Catholic School has consolidated all of its classes at Holy Rosary Parish, 4400 22nd Ave., for the coming school year.

After a decision earlier this year to consolidate all classes in one building, Kenosha’s All Saints Catholic School will kick off its school year Monday at the Holy Rosary campus at 4400 22nd Ave.

Formerly, All Saints conducted classes at All Saints as well as St. Mary Catholic School, 7400 39th Ave.

The move to one campus was made in order to bring about “financial savings, efficiencies in education, greater collaboration among educators, and stronger unity among the community,” according to a news release from the school.

“We’ve been working around the clock to prepare our building for this new school year,” said Principal Dan Jorgensen. “The outpouring of support from parents and volunteers has been outstanding. Many tradesmen have donated their expertise and extensive labor hours to ensure the campus is in tip top shape for our students.”

Teachers said they are eager for better collaboration with their colleagues.

“The teachers are so excited to be working together all under one roof this year,” said Assistant Principal Kelly Neu. “The energy in the building is nothing short of high! These teachers are pumped for the year ahead, and have great plans for the students.”

In preparation for the start of school, all faculty are taking part in a spiritual retreat this week, which includes Mass and a talk by the Rev. Bob Weighner, the school’s chaplain.

“We are grounded in bringing Christ to our students,” Weighner said. “This is a great opportunity for teachers to recommit to this mission and discuss how together, we can create a culture that fosters virtue and character.”

The theme for this 2019-20 school year is “The World Needs More Saints.”

“Our faith teaches us that we are each called to holiness,” Weighner said. “In a world that esteems power, prestige and ambition, we help to foster a culture of faith, values and rigor.

“We take seriously the fact that parents have entrusted us with their children to be formed in God’s ways. That means we will teach them about the faith — rooted in the Gospel message.”

All Saints families can pick up their packets during an open house Thursday.

School will begin at 7:30 a.m. Monday with a flag raising followed by an all-school blessing.

The first all-school Mass will begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday, with parents and families invited to attend.

All Saints Catholic School was founded in 2011 and supports 10 local parishes. It is the largest K-8 program in the Milwaukee archdiocese, serving nearly 450 students from Kenosha County, Racine and northern Illinois.
