Family Newsletter

February 23, 2022

Dear St. Anne Parents,


If you think we just finished up with Christmas, let me take a minute to tell you that Easter will be here in a little over seven weeks!!!! The official liturgical season of Lent begins next Wednesday, March 2 ... Ash Wednesday. All our students will be attending the 8:45 Mass on Ash Wednesday. They will be receiving ashes that day. Ashes are a simple reminder that we are all human and our lives will end some day. Knowing this fact, we need to remember how important it is that we live a good and holy life each and every day of our lives.

Over the next 40 days of Lent, we should take time at the end of each day to think about what we did to make our life and the lives of our family and those around us.....better. Lent is the time when we need to make a conscious effort to become a better person today than we were yesterday. Christ showed us and told us with his words and actions how each of us can make ourselves and those around us...better. Our challenge is to make time each day to ensure that we are more Christ-like at the end of Lent than we were at the beginning.

Students will be taking home a Lenten calendar which has suggestions as to what can be done each day during Lent. Be sure to ask your child for the calendar....post it on the refrigerator and see what happens.

ST. ANNE SUMMER SCHOOL 2022 and a FINANCIAL OPTION

As you know by now, we will be offering a summer school program to students this year. We expect a great deal of interest in this program. I want our families to have first "dibs" at enrolling your child(ren). Other Catholic schools will have the option of signing up starting next week. If finances are tight at this moment, here is an option. In order to secure a spot for your child,(ren), I would JUST NEED THE REGISTRATION FORM(S) filled out and returned ASAP!!!! You could send in the summer school fee at a later date. I hope this helps. Once the classes are filled, I won't be able to get your child(ren) into their class(es).

SAVE THE DATE - APRIL 9TH "CASINO ROYALE NIGHT & SILENT AUCTION"
