From the Desk of Ellen Knippel, Principal

Dear Parents,
As you can well imagine, the excitement is in the air here at St. Anthony. The teachers are trying to keep things as "normal" as possible before Christmas break - just to keep everyone calm!  We will be lighting the Advent wreath twice this week. Our prayer will be led by the 4 th  and 5th  grades. 

Tuesday is our Christmas Concert. Please be sure that students are here by 5:45pm. K3, K4, and K5 have been given directions on where to meet. All other students will be in their places in church. Band will be warming up in St. Anthony Hall at 5:30pm. 

Birthday Blessing for those students celebrating December birthdays will take place at Mass on Wednesday at 7:45am. Finally, we are still collecting hats and waterproof mittens as a part of our Advent outreach. Please feel free to send these before the Christmas Holiday break.
From the Faculty and Staff here at St. Anthony on the Lake School ~ We wish you a Blessed Christmas and a New Year filled with Peace and Hope. Thank you for the wonderful support you give us throughout the year!

Advent Blessings!

Mrs. Ellen Knippel
