St Rita Wins American Heart Association Challenge
In order to keep children healthy and active, the American Heart Association developed a new initiative, the Heart Walk & Run Child Health Challenge.
The American Heart Association selected 25 local schools, including St. Rita School, to participate and asked them to make a video showing why they could use new PE equipment. Mr. Mutrie created a video with help from the entire school. Four winners were chosen out of the 25 video submissions and WE WERE ONE OF THEM!

Special School Events
Art at St. Rita
With our youngest students we emphasize the process not the product, letting them explore art materials and see what happens. Activities are planned for the next level to inspire them to communicate through visual art and aide in their development as young artists.
With art we hope to encourage imagination and the ability to solve problems, sometimes, within set parameters.
Art experiences can provide opportunity for original thought where sometimes there are no boundaries dictated by what is right or wrong but simply what is POSSIBLE.
Students need to be aware of the way art is composed of lines, shapes, textures, patterns and colors.Through their experiences we respect them as individuals and ask them to explain their artistic vision.
