A Note from the Principal
Our wonderful library has been without a librarian since we started back to school in August. I am very happy to announce that I have hired a new librarian, Ms. Nancy Wong, to take over our school library starting in January. Nancy has been finishing up her teaching credential working with Ms. Der in our fifth grade classroom this first semester. Nancy has great enthusiasm and talent so having her in our school library is a perfect fit. I know that you will join me as we welcome Nancy to our St. Anne School Family.
Just a reminder that only the Irving Street gate will be open tomorrow night at 6:15 to allow cars to park in the school yard. Students are to be in their classroom by 6:30. Once the show starts at 7:00, students will not be allowed to leave to go home until the show is concluded at approximately 9:00. I want to extend special thanks to our music teacher, Laura Flaviani, for the outstanding effort she has put into making this year's program so fun and enjoyable.
On behalf of all of us here at St. Anne School, I would like to extend our warmest wishes to all of you for a very Blessed and Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2020. See everyone when we return on Monday, January 6, 2020.

2019 CHRISTMAS SHOW VIDEO
This year we won’t be burning DVD’s of the Christmas program. Instead you’ll be able to watch it streaming on a Private Video on YouTube. In past years, the DVD was $25.00. We are able to keep the cost to a minimum, thanks to a new approach. When you donate $10 via PayPal, Tom DelMundo will email you a link to the Private Video. Thanks to Tom DelMundo of the Yearbook Committee for setting this up.
1. Donate on our PayPal page: https://paypal.me/pools/c/8kFmluYw9g
2. Please send funds using your PayPal balance, bank or debit card to avoid PayPal charging fees.
3. Tom DelMundo will email you a link to the Private Video when editing is completed.

Parents must complete the VIRTUS ONLINE training AND be fingerprinted to volunteer for field trips, retreats, overnights, library, health room, reading programs, or any other school/parish activity that involve their presence around students. Please complete the course and fingerprints as soon as possible so that there are no delays with your participation in school functions.
