This week, Mayor Murray paid a visit to Holy Rosary S.T.E.M. (Plus) School! The mayor attended Holy Rosary as a third grader in 1963 before moving to Lacey. While visiting, he was being filmed by a crew from Ireland, who is making a documentary about the Irish in Seattle. Mayor Murray was able to walk the halls and watch many students engaged in exciting activities. He met with a group of junior high students, and was impressed by their maturity and thoughtful questions.
In case you wondered, with the Irish reference – while the president of Ireland is visiting our area right now, the mayor’s HR stop was before his arrival.
P.S. If you’re not part of the HR community, you might notice something new in the school’s name. We asked registrar Kimberly Tish about it: “This year we have fully integrated the STEM approach into all areas of our curriculum. The (Plus) speaks to the focus on our Catholic Identity and our strong arts programs: art, music, foreign language (Spanish).” She adds that the school’s already accepting applications for next year.
