Dear St. Anne Catholic School Families:
It’s hard to believe the school year is coming to an end. We only have 3 1/2 days to go! They say time flies when you’re having fun, and we certainly had a lot of fun this year.
Our week was filled with two memorable and joyous events, Candle Passing and 8th grade graduation. Candle passing is a beautiful tradition here at St. Anne where the outgoing 8th graders pass the torch of leadership to the rising 8th graders. We rely on our 8th graders to set the example for our younger students by being Mass buddies with our early childhood students and leading our Student Council and NJHS organizations.
Congratulations to the 35 members of the Class of 2022 on their graduation! We are grateful to Father Tommy for a beautiful mass honoring our 8th graders. We are very proud of them and know they will go on to do great things. We wish them well knowing that they are ready to go out and make a difference in the world.
Congratulations to our 2nd graders on making their First Holy Communion this weekend. First Holy Communion is a milestone event in the life of a Catholic and we are thrilled to see our 2nd grade students take the next step in their faith. We hope to see everyone out at the “Craw Dads” fundraiser on Sunday. It is sure to be a fun event with food, music and more.
Have a blessed weekend!
Only by His Grace,
Kendall Shamas, Ed.D
