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
Welcome to Mrs. Smith's Music Class!
Here at St. Rita's School, we learn about all the different aspects to music both in and out of the classroom. Guided by a deep appreciation of the past, we study the great composers of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic, Modern, and Contemporary music. We also learn about folk music, the orchestra, and how to use different instruments. The students learn basic music theory and notation. Students can also tap into their creative side and try their hand at composing and improvising.
At St. Rita's School, we believe that life is a stage!
As such, students at St. Rita's have many opportunities to perform on stage and learn valuable skills in public speaking. All grades sponsor a school mass and also perform in different liturgies and events throughout the year. Also, grades K-5 participate in a school production every year. All students are given the opportunity to speak and sing on stage.
"Singing is Praying Twice."
"Praise Him with trumpet sound; Praise Him with lute and harp! Praise Him with tambourine and dance; Praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
