Holy Rosary Regional Catholic School, Plymouth Meeting, is planning for Catholic Schools Week by arranging with the seven parishes who support Holy Rosary Regional’s students so that the students (in uniform) can attend their parish’s Masses the week prior, Jan. 19-20, to hand out “thank you” notes to the parishioners for their continued support of the school. The notes will also include an invitation to the school’s open house on Jan. 27.

Sunday, Jan. 27
Open House, 1-3 p.m., with book fair continuing until Thursday, Jan. 31.
