Dear St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School Families,

It’s been another busy week at St. Anthony! Your children are working hard preparing for the last week before our much anticipated Thanksgiving break. The 3rd graders did a fantastic job on their Saints projects. Kindergarten presented an adorable Thanksgiving Program to their families. Seventh grade began an exciting lab with osmosis and potatoes. And the list goes on and on! It has been great to see so many parents on campus celebrating the achievements of their students along with us.

Many thanks to everyone who shared information regarding yesterday’s Prospective Family Open House. We had a great event with a wonderful turnout. The parents commented on the impressive intelligence, kindness and respectfulness of your children. We are so grateful to have your children here.

Only by His Grace,
Veronica Tucker

BOOK FAIR - November 10-16
Welcome Lads and Lasses!  We're having an Enchanted Forest Book Fair, where we can wonder into a whimsical forest of books waiting to be opened and read. Can we sprinkle some magic fairy dust inviting you to help for a short time? If you can contribute a little of your time, it would be very much appreciated! Classes visit the book fair throughout the week.

We are seeking volunteers to assist with this week! During your shift, you will help children make their Wish Lists and purchases. We are also seeking volunteers to help with set-up and take-down!  All volunteers must be VIRTUS-certified. Thank you for your help!

GRANDPARENTS DAY
NOVEMBER 16, 2018 | 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.
On Grandparents and Grandfriends Day, grandparents will spend time enjoying morning refreshments, visiting our book fair, visiting the photo booth, buying a raffle ticket, participating in activities, and attending Mass with their favorite students. Students will dismiss at noon to enjoy the rest of the day with their grandparents.

Due to the large crowd of grandparents in attendance, this celebration is reserved for grandparents or special friends ONLY​. We cannot accommodate parents or siblings due to space but parents and siblings are welcome to join us for Mass at 10:45 a.m.

We are seeking a few parent volunteers to assist us on Grandparents Day. Please click the sign-up genius to help.
