Family Newsletter

Dear St. Anne Parents,


We are about half-way through the Lenten season. Try to take a few minutes to check-in with your child(ren) about how they are doing with their Lenten practices. Are they following through on the plans they had when Lent began on Ash Wednesday? Do they feel they are growing closer to God? If so, let them talk about it. If they are not following through on their promise or they don't feel it is helping them grow closer to God, help them make a change to their plan or figure out how they can do better at following their original plan. I believe taking a little time to do this will benefit you as you listen to your child (and maybe gain insights from them) as well as support your child's spiritual growth.

The curtain will go up at 7:00 spotlighting many of our very talented students who are ready to dazzle you with their songs, dances, instruments, and jokes. I also hear that there is a very special act that evening. I don't know about you, but I am looking forward to the entire event.

Mark your calendars for our grand reopening....."St. Anne School's Talent Show / Ice Cream Social...March 24!!"

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).

CHOICELUNCH REMINDERS!

A few things to keep in mind when ordering with Choicelunch -

"After our order deadline of noon three days before delivery has passed, there are a limited number of late lunches available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Once they are sold out, there isn't a way to order late. Also, late orders are no longer accepted after 9 am the day before delivery.

Lunch can be canceled as late as 9 am the day before it will be served for 100% credit.

After this point, the lunch will be sent to the school and there is no credit given.

You can also find our FAQ here - https://help.choicelunch.com/hc/en-us

Our support is available from 8am through 4pm Monday-Friday."
