St. Anne School Family Newsletter

March 31, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


On behalf of all the faculty and staff here at St. Anne School, I want to wish everyone a very Happy, Healthy, and Blessed Easter.

Together we have made this year a pretty great experience for our students. It has not been an easy year, but understanding what it takes to keep our students, staff, and families educated, healthy, and safe, everyone has made those needed sacrifices and we have remained healthy. I would like to ask everyone, once again, to be aware of what is needed to keep our school virus-free, especially when so many of our families will be gathering with out of the home family members and friends over the coming Easter break. The virus is STILL here with us and if we let our guard down, all we are doing is opening up the door to invite the virus to continue to spread and possibly get a foot in the door here at school. Masking and social distancing are still two key components that can keep people free of the virus. Thanks for your on-going vigilance!!!

Have a good Easter break and we look forward to seeing everyone on April 12.

ZOOM HOLY WEEK PRAYER SERVICE TOMORROW AT 11:15

Our first graders will lead the school in a Holy Week Prayer Service at 11:15 tomorrow. All are invited to join us.

WHOOPING COUGH BOOSTER (TDAP) - ALL INCOMING 7TH GRADERS

All incoming 7th graders are required by law to have proof of a whooping cough booster (Tdap) shot on file. Be prepared, start your planning and get your 6th grader vaccinated early - before the fall back-to-school rush!

ST. ANNE SUMMER SCHOOL??

After much thought, I have decided not to offer a summer program this year. We all know how challenging this year has been for everyone. Our teachers have gone above and beyond for their students. I would like to give them a break over the summer. With a little R and R everyone will be starting off our new year with renewed energy and enthusiasm. I know this announcement will be disappointing to many of you, but I know that you can understand why I needed to make this decision. Thanks for your understanding.

JOIN GIRL SCOUTS

The Girl Scouts present opportunities for girls kindergarten through eighth grade to pursue interests individually and with others. Now, girls can participate both live and virtually. See the flyer for more information about joining.

2020-2021 YEARBOOKS AVAILABLE

Despite the present difficult circumstances, we will be having a yearbook as in other years. The content will be a little different than usual with limited activities but it is a year to be remembered. It can be ordered through Beverly Perea for $30. Download the form and send it to school with your child. If you are doing Distance Learning, you can mail it to the school with your check or drop it off on the bookshelf at the top of the stairs at the main entrance to the school.
