Dear St. Anne Catholic School Parents:


We had a wonderful celebration of National Catholic Schools Week. Throughout the week there were many opportunities to celebrate the blessings of our Catholic school. We kicked off Catholic Schools Week with our annual Chili Cookoff. We are so grateful to Mr. Feldman and the Dad’s Club for sponsoring this event. The Saturday evening mass was filled with St. Anne students and families. Our choir did a wonderful job singing during mass. Thank you to Mrs. Jones for her dedication to our students and our school. Monday started our Nickel Wars and throughout the week we raised over $3300.00 which will be donated to Father Ryan’s movie, “Love God’s Will”. Our Pastries with Pals event was well attended, thank you to our PTO for hosting this event. On Wednesday, the students attended school mass and participated in the Patriotic Rosary and on Thursday we prayed for vocations during Adoration. On Friday our wonderful PTO provided breakfast for the faculty and staff and students brought in notes of appreciation. We are so grateful to our PTO and parent community for all of the support and special treats for Catholic Schools Week.


Our Future Family Open House on Wednesday was very well attended. We have many families interested in attending our school and we are excited to welcome them to our family. Thank you to those who have shared the good news about St. Anne with your friends and encouraged them to visit. Thank you to our parents and our students who gave tours for Open House. Registration is now open for new students.



Steps for Students is just one week away! Our goal is to have 100% student participation in this event. The money raised supports our school and helps us to reach our overall fundraising goal. Don’t want to run or walk – you can hit “snooze” for schools and still participate! Click here to register.


NWEA parent reports were sent home today. We are very proud of our student progress.


With gratitude,

Kendall Shamas, Ed. D

Principal
