Summer Reading Suggestions
The Tattooist of Auschwitz
By: Heather Morris

Suggested by: Mr. John Mein

Theme: Restore

Summary: A love story of concentration camp inmates during the Holocaust, their drive to survive, clever tactics to outwit the Nazi soldiers, and their inevitable survival. The protagonist is responsible for tattooing the numbers on each inmate, an act so vile by an individual who extends his compassion and shows grace to all inmates. He and his wife live a long life after their liberation, though fraught with success and failure.

Take Away: It shows that with the mental focus on any goal, you can overcome insurmountable odds.

Verification of Enrollment Forms (VOE)

On occasion throughout the summer, students need to obtain Verification of Enrollment (VOE) forms in order to pursue driver's licenses. In order to plan for an issuing Administrator to be able to offer this to a student in light of our reduced summer office hours (Monday - Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. | Closed on Friday), we have established a request link for students to use. An issuing Administrator will check this link daily (M-F) and will reach out to the student to schedule a time to pick up their form. The form CANNOT be issued electronically, i.e., through email, and the student MUST be present to sign the form.
Student Schedule Information

Student class schedules will be released and available on the student/parent portal the week of July 26th. Opportunities for any needed schedule changes will be included in forthcoming weekly news messages as the school year draws nearer.

Obsolete Textbook List
No Longer Required
Please note that there are just a few textbooks from 2020-2021 that will not be used during the 2021-2022 school year. 

For a list of these books, please click on the following link:
MBS Direct | Opens Thursday, July 1, 2021

Antonian uses MBS Direct to provide information and purchasing options for textbooks used for Antonian courses. Textbooks via MBS Direct will be available online for purchase beginning tomorrow, July 1, 2021.

Students are responsible for the purchase of their own textbooks. If a textbook is noted as "required," it is imperative that the student acquire the book and bring it as directed by the teacher.
Buy-Sell-Trade Facebook Group

Last year, we started a buy-sell-trade Facebook group for parents to exchange and sell their used textbooks with other Antonian families. We will be offering this service again. If you would like, click on the below link to request access to the group.

Please note -- sellers are responsible for their payments and trade agreements. Antonian strongly recommends waiting to purchase textbooks until Thursday, July 1, 2021, when the MBS Direct link goes live so that parents know which books to buy.
