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
Dear Prospective St. Rita School Families:
Our school is a loving place where the students, our special God Drops, grow in a JOYful atmosphere. The faculty and staff believe in our ministry to educate the children with a faith centered theme of JOY (Jesus, Others, Yourself). All of our teachers are New York State certified and our staff includes many additional support personnel including retired St. Rita School teachers who volunteer in the classrooms. For over 58 years St. Rita School has provided a quality education within a caring Roman Catholic Community. It is our goal to educate the whole child. All different learning styles, faiths and ethnicities are embraced. We are dedicated to making sure that every student becomes a tenacious learner and a strong, faith filled individual.
Communication is most important and considered a fundamental part of our daily routine. We strive to keep families well informed and welcome their suggestions and input. We follow the New York State Curriculum, as well as Diocesan Catholic Faith teaching. It is most important that our students find school to be a loving, caring, and nurturing place where they feel safe, happy, and JOYful every day.
Your child’s education is one of the most important decisions you will make for them. For the last 58 years we have been working with families to help them invest in their child’s future and provide them with the very best education.
You are most welcome to visit us, to share our JOY and witness our God Drops growing in faith and learning. Please call to arrange a visit 585-671-3132.
Ms. Mary Ellen Wagner
