Parent Service Club

Purpose: The purpose of the Parent Service Club (PSC) is to serve the needs of the school. Holy Rosary Regional School is committed to fulfilling its mission of educating all children who seek a Catholic education, regardless of a family’s access to financial resources. Because of this mission, the school has many needs which must be met by its community. This club has been formed in response to those needs.

If you have a student at HRRS/JDA and would like to volunteer or lead an activity, please contact one of the PSC chairs or the president.
