Multiple changes at Rosary have taken place, from going from a high school to an academy, to the school mascot changing to a “Royal” from the previous “Royalette.” While names may change, the values and traditions of Rosary have stayed strong, leading to many moms who experienced Rosary sending their own daughters to an institution that they believe in–Rosary. These current Royals’ moms have also attended Rosary.

Senior Julia Lewis‘s mom: Margaret Stapleton-Lewis, class of 1986. When asked what Mrs. Lewis liked best about her time here, she replied “When I think of Rosary, I think one of my classmates said it best at our last reunion when she said, “every day was like a giant slumber party,” because it was just so much fun every day on the field being silly and hanging out during lunch. No one worried about what others thought. What I liked best though, was definitely Red and Gold.”

Senior Jill Sarni‘s mom: Kimberly Haerens-Sarni, class of 1988. Mrs. Sarni informed the Royal Reporter: “I loved being a Red and Gold captain, and especially enjoyed the junior and senior class retreat weekends.”

Senior Sophia McGuire’s mom: Gina Franceschi-McGuire, class  of 1988. Mrs. McGuire commented, “My years at Rosary were some of the most impactful of my life, having given some of my greatest friendships, increased confidence in my abilities as a woman, and most importantly an unyielding commitment to my Catholic faith and a life in service to others.”

Senior Natalie Ruiz’s mom: Joanna Ruiz, class of 1989. Mrs. Ruiz told the Royal Reporter what she liked about Rosary: “I was a lot more reserved when I was starting high school, but over my 4 years, I really became more confident. This is because Rosary gave me a positive environment to try out new things to step outside of my comfort zone. As well as instilling a strong faith and trust in God, that has struck with me.”

Class mascots may have changed from Winnie the Pooh and the Padington Bear to flamingos and seals, but the positive impact from attending Rosary has transcended generations.
