The Week Ahead

Casino Night is Almost Here!

TICKET SALES CLOSE ON MARCH 8! You may purchase tickets in the Narthex after any Mass this weekend. Tix are $50 each and include dinner, open bar, and dancing, plus the cash casino gaming and so many other chances to win fun stuff.


There are so many ways to get lucky that night: poker, craps, roulette, and blackjack. Raffle baskets. Auction prizes like vacation homes, sports tickets, or a ride to school on a firetruck for your kiddos. The Booze Cart. THE POT OF GOLD $15k JACKPOT. And let's not forget the fabulous food, open bar, and dancing the night away with our own school dad DJ, Alex Correa!


We also need attendees to work one hour shifts, assigning wristbands, selling raffle tickets, etc. Fun, easy jobs where you can meet people and feel great about helping. The very small committee has already put in countless hours on this--they need your help for one hour that night. All of our teachers are signed up for shifts already. Join them! Sign up here.


Did you know that proceeds from Casino Night will benefit OUR children? The success of this event is critical to the health and longevity of St. Ann School. That being said, it's also FUN! Who doesn't want to have a great time?

Skating Party

THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Lynwood Sport Center

Tickets are $7 and will be available for purchase during Morning Assembly on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Every student who buys a ticket will receive a NUT card for a future day out of uniform (even if they don't end up attending the party). Also, the class with the highest ticket sales will win an ADDITIONAL dress down day!


Kids of all ages are invited; there are accommodations for even the youngest skaters. Skate rentals are $2.50 (they even have learn-to-skate skates for the little ones, and "walkers" on wheels are available for $4 rental fee). Parents/guardians are not required to skate, but every student does need to be accompanied by a responsible adult who will sign them in and out and remain on the premises for the duration of the event. This means that if you are unable to stay, another adult (18 or over) must be willing to take responsibility for your child in your absence. Our March Skating Party is being hosted by the 5th Grade Parents. If that's you, please sign up for a spot! Remember, volunteer hours have to be completed by the end of March to earn your $300 back.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

FRIDAY, MARCH 13

School will dismiss at 11:30 a.m. Extended Day will be available as usual.


All teachers will be available for parent conferences from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. If you would like to meet with any of them, please reach out to the individual teachers through email so they may know to expect you. A complete faculty directory may be found here on our website.

Re-enrollment forms for the 2020-21 school year went home in last week's envelope, but if you need another one, it can be downloaded and printed here. Don't let the discount pass you by!
