Did you know?
The month of June is dedicated to The Sacred Heart of Jesus. Would you like to draw closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus? Try Eucharistic Adoration this month or pray aspirations (short prayers) which can be said anytime!

Sacred Heart of Jesus, protect our families.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, you are loved.

We are still in need of volunteers for this year's planning committee, specifically in the areas of Finance, Silent Auction, and Live Auction. Committee members do not have to be school families to help...planning is already underway so it would be great to fill these roles as soon as possible! Can you help? Email Andrea Wojcinski.

Dear Families,
Help your child avoid the summer slide: encourage them to stay active physically, academically and spiritually. Use the summer enrichment monthly cards given to students on Wed. (may be in a bag yet?) for a variety of challenges and enrichment. There are "your choice" squares for them to fill with their own ideas.  Below are many options, and we know the children are very creative! Have them mark off as many challenges each month as they can, and return their sheets on orientation day so we can celebrate their enriching summer at the beginning of school. One student asked if they could use dots so they can use the square more than once...absolutely! Use the sheets however they are useful and encouraging for your student!
 
Nurture your child's inner "Book Worm" this summer; they can use their bookworm bookmark to record some of their favorite books.
 
Our hope is that your child spends the summer reading, playing, praying, and enjoying the long summer days. In this newsletter you will find several resources, links, and ideas for your family.

Please take a photo of your child reading or doing an enrichment activity and send to the school communications email or post on facebook and tag St. Anthony on the Lake School. We would love to see the fun things you are doing to stay active academically, physically, and spiritually this summer! 

Enjoy the summer!
