St. Rose Grammar School, Belmar, was the recent recipient of a $15,000 grant from the Patricia A. O’Callaghan Catholic Charitable Foundation. The funds were directed to be used to enhance the school’s remote learning capabilities, according to Gregory Guito, principal.

In an effort to keep our school competitive, we have done many things to modernize the building and its curriculum during the past year, he said. “This year in particular has brought an unprecedented amount of demands for our school to protect our students while also providing an education that is both in-person and virtual,” Guito continued, noting that the donation went toward purchasing extra equipment including network cameras, Bluetooth microphones and Chromebooks.
