St. Anne School Family Newsletter

September 1, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


I know you join me in welcoming our two new staff members to St. Anne School. Joining us this year are Ms. Katherine Hammond who is teaching third grade and Ms. Orlaith O'Leary who is our First through Eighth Grade Resource teacher. Both Ms. Hammond and Ms. O'Leary come to us with outstanding experience teaching students. We are very fortunate to have them join our other outstanding teachers here at St. Anne School. I want to welcome back one of our newly retired teachers to St. Anne School. Mrs. Claudine Hallisy is rejoining our staff two mornings a week as our school's librarian. She will be teaching classes, organizing our library programs, and coordinating parent volunteers. Welcome back, Claudine and welcome Katherine and Orlaith.

Back To School Nights are meant to offer parents answers and insights into a teacher's classroom instructional strategies and approaches, their classroom routines, and finally the expectations and goals that they have for their students. Tonight's Back To School Night is for our Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Grade Parents. The Back To School Night begins at 7:00. All 6-8 parents should have received the Zoom link for this meeting. Tomorrow night's Back To School Night is for our Kindergarten - Fifth Grade Parents. Those meetings will begin at 7:00. Our classroom teachers have sent their parents the links to their meetings. If you have not received the link, please email your child's teacher and she will send it out to you. We really expect that all parents will Zoom in for their child's Back To School Night. There will be a repeat of each K-5 teacher's presentation at 7:30 in case you are not able to attend the first session.
