School Spirit Day and Volleyball Homecoming


Let's have a dress-down day to show our school team spirit! All volleyball, basketball, and soccer team members should wear their jerseys to school on Friday, and everyone else should wear their St. Ann School tie-dyes. On Saturday, January 18, our Lady Roughriders will host their Homecoming games at Holy Ghost beginning at 9:00 a.m. Come on out and support our student athletes!

Family Movie Night is Coming!

FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 6:00 p.m. in the SCHOOL HALL

We are in need of donations and volunteers so that everyone can have fun and stay safe at our annual Movie Night! Please visit the SignUp link for details and pick your spot! Your kids will be watching the movie, so it's a great chance to earn some volunteer hours.

Re-Enrollment Discount Extended!

Before Christmas break, our 2019-20 School Year tuition rates and re-enrollment form went home offering a discount off the $150 fee to those who re-enrolled before the end of the year. There wasn't much time to turn it around before we were out of school and the offices closed for break. So we are extending the discount! Returning families who fill out the form and return it NO LATER THAN JANUARY 31 will only pay the early re-enrollment special fee of $50.

Night at the Palace Updates

Tickets will go on sale for our third annual Night at the Palace next weekend after Masses. They are $50 each and include dinner, open bar, and a chance at a $1,500 trip! We will also send home an order form in next Thursday's envelope. Try to round up all your friends so you can sit together. There will be a prize for the class that has the highest percentage of parent participation (attending, donating, working, they all count). You can also knock out some volunteer time by signing up for a shift at the event: Everyone has such a great time, it doesn't even feel like work!

Love Those Box Tops!

Our next Box Tops for Education Challenge is underway! This time around, the prize is a basket full of goodies! What kind of goodies? It will be a surprise! Students will receive one entry into the prize drawing for every 25 Box Tops they turn in: 50 Box Tops earns two entries, 100 Box Tops gets you four entries, and so on. It only takes one entry to win, but why not increase your chances and go for two or more? The deadline for submissions is February 7, and our grand prize winner will be announced on Valentine's Day. Print out your collection sheets here, or enclose neatly clipped Box Tops in Ziploc baggies--be sure your child's name and class are on all submissions. Please note: We cannot accept expired Box Tops, which could affect your entries, so please make sure yours are current.

Tax Credit Scholarship Matching Gift Program

If you or anyone you know likes to take advantage of tax credits, please refer to the Archdiocese of Chicago's Tax Credit Scholarship information page. Not only will donations to the program made by the end of February be TRIPLED by the 2-for-1 matching program, but your entire Illinois state tax liability could be eliminated! Plus, donors can designate which school receives their funds, so the money can all stay right here to help our families. Print a fact sheet here to give to your loved ones.
