There are many reasons why I enjoy and will miss Holy Rosary. One reason I like Holy Rosary is because of the amazing friends I have made over the years. I have known them for a long time. Another reason is that I like all the different teachers and classes that I attend. I enjoy graphing in math and reading class novels. I also enjoy specials and lunch. All the teachers that I have had at Holy Rosary have done their best to prepare me for high school. Holy Rosary has given me many great memories. ~ Andrew Sefers

I have many reasons as to why I like attending Holy Rosary. All of my teachers have prepared me for high school. The teachers are fantastic and always make learning in class fun. Our classes are strict and take a lot of studying, but I am proud of how much I have learned and excelled. Talking to teachers about personal issues, grades, sports, etc. is super easy, and they always make me feel comfortable. Playing sports for Holy Rosary has completely changed my life. Playing volleyball for my school has given me multiple opportunities, allowed me to make a club team, and win championships my 7th grade year. Something I look forward to every single day is walking down the hall and receiving a “good morning” from all the teachers. Holy Rosary is by far the best part of my day from when I wake up to when I go to sleep. I could not have asked for a better middle school experience. ~ Jaimes Harvey

All the teachers I’ve had throughout the years, and the ones that have helped me with my work, I have grown very fond of.

Holy Rosary is a very special place for me for one big reason. When I went to another elementary school, in 1st grade, I was diagnosed with ADHD. After that, I was treated differently there. Fewer people talked to me and teachers stopped slowing down for me to catch up. I was looking for schools after my birthday, and my dad brought me to Holy Rosary to visit a 1st grade class. Then the Tuesday after Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I began attending school here. That’s why Holy Rosary means so much to me. ~ Chandler Henderson

A Lifelong Ram

January 26, 2021
By Darren Mullis

                                                                        A Lifelong Ram
                                                            What it means to be a Ram!

I have been a Ram since my family moved to Memphis in 1971 when I was a year and a half
old. Being a Ram has certainly played a role in making me who I am today. My first memories
of Holy Rosary center around Sunday school in one of the classrooms and sitting in the front
pew with my family during mass. With six children and my mom and dad, needless to say, we
took up the entire pew. Then, of course, there were the many stops in the cafeteria for coffee
and donuts after mass. That is where I first realized that my dad liked to talk. After waiting for
what seemed like hours we would beg him to take us home. But this shows that, even from
those many years ago, Holy Rosary provided these types of social opportunities for its families.
The adults shared their time together and the children did so as well. This is something that
has continued throughout Holy Rosary’s history.


Then there was the time my brother and I were waiting for my parents to get done with the
Science Fair by playing outside. Let’s just say I started kindergarten wearing a cast for a
broken leg. That experience taught me a valuable lesson; cars are big and heavy. But, that
was not the only lesson I learned during my time as a Ram. I attended school here from
1st-8th grade. During that time my academic foundation was solidified and prepared me well
for my high school and college careers. Whether it was Mrs. Ross in first grade, Mrs. Hill in
third, or Mrs. McWatters and Mrs. Fay in junior high all the teachers had a commitment to their
students and to Catholic education.


I can’t remember all the classmates I had over my time at Holy Rosary but they impacted
my development in different ways. The ones who were with me throughout our time at Holy
Rosary gave me a perspective on situations and experiences that helped me see things from
their point of view. It is an invaluable lesson to learn when you can see a situation through
another person’s eyes. There were great friendships that developed over those years as well.
That is another aspect of Holy Rosary that is so special. You will see many friendships
continue beyond the student’s time at Holy Rosary. The groups of friends I have encountered
as adults that formed during their time in school here are too many to count. It is a special
bond that was developed over many years and through many shared experiences.


Another lesson I learned from Holy Rosary came from participating in the sports program.
My many coaches taught all of us to show good sportsmanship and to represent our school
well. It also taught us how to have a healthy rivalry with the other Catholic schools; St. Ann -
Bartlett, St. Paul, St. Dominic/St. Agnes, and the other school down the road. The sports
program was another part of what made me what I am. It introduced me to different sports
and how to work together to make everyone better.


Fast forward a few years (ok, about 20 years) to the year I was named the principal of Holy
Rosary School, 2003. I had already been on staff for 11 years working with the youth and the
religious education of the parish, teaching some classes, and spent a year as vice-principal.
But being the principal allowed me to utilize my background and history at Holy Rosary. It is
that history that helped shape some of the decisions I’ve made over the past 18 years. I’ve
tried to merge our history and tradition with today’s educational model and technology to
enable our students to reach new heights.


We have always been taught that the “church” is the people not the building itself. The
parishioners of Holy Rosary make up Holy Rosary Church. Over the sixty-five years of our
parish being here many pastors, associate priests and parishioners have come and gone, but,
the great family environment has always been here. It is not one person or priest that makes
that family feeling. Each of us contribute to the specialness of Holy Rosary.

Each of us help to define what it is to be a Ram. And, each of us, once we’ve been adopted into this HR family
are a Ram and it will leave an indelible mark on our lives. Once a Ram always a Ram!

Happy 66th Birthday Holy Rosary School

October 27, 2020
By Jane Tonning

Happy Birthday Holy Rosary School…

Holy Rosary Catholic School was 66 years old in September.  In 1954 this new school in east Memphis opened its doors. The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, KY welcomed the new students.

My life at Holy Rosary began in the fall of 1956. I was in a new city and a new school. I entered the same front doors by the office the children walk through today. After entering, I would turn left and go down the ramp and went into the first door on the right. It was Mrs. McDowell’s 3rd grade class, and she made me feel welcomed.  As all children, I was happy to go out to recess and meet my new friends. We walked out of the classroom turned right and walked about 15 feet and went outside. Yes, this new school building ended not far from the end of the hall ramp.

In only two years, Holy Rosary was already having growing pains. In the fall of 1957 Holy Rosary rented classrooms at a new school named St. Louis on White Station Road. It was exciting to ride the HR school bus to and from St. Louis for that school year. We left the campus at 8:15 and left St. Louis at 2:30. Yes, there was a HR school bus for early morning drop off and after school pick up for all grades. Eventually, there were 2 school busses.  In the fall of 1958 the 6 new classrooms were filled quickly.  In fact in 1959, my 6th grade was packed. The classroom was half 5th and half 6th with about 25 on each side of the classroom. The room was packed! But Sr. Bernard Joseph ran a tight ship and you could hear a pin drop anytime during the day. During my 7th grade year, a new building was added on the west side with a covered walkway.

After graduation from 8th grade, the Fr. Wiley Gym was added. The building was named after the first pastor of Holy Rosary Church. There was a convent in the area that is now called Spalding Green. The two-story addition of classrooms and library completed the school. Finally, the rectory was replaced with the newest gym and offices. The campus has grown over the last 66 years and with each addition student life was enhanced.

My years attending Holy Rosary were very special. Every day every student attended mass at 11am. I believe we all had our own personal missal and followed the mass written in Latin and English. The nuns and teachers wove our faith in every subject we studied. We learned about lives of the saints and were encouraged to do our best.

Even today I still see classmates from grade school. I know their children and now I see these old friends on Grandparents Day.

I have always been grateful for my Catholic education. Just like the parents of today, for 66 years parents have chosen to make the sacrifice to send their children to Holy Rosary. It is still a privilege to give this gift of Catholic education.

Thanks for letting me share my mini walk through my HR years.

Happy 66th Birthday Holy Rosary School and may you have another 100 plus.

It was meant to be.

Ela’s husband is Kenneth Melhado, and he works for the Honduran Consulate in Atlanta.
