Order your 2019/20 yearbooks by September 30 and get 15% off the $25.00 regular price! Go to and enter our St. Ann School code: 101378829749327. If you like to customize your two free pages, you do not need to do so at this time--you have most of the school year to accomplish this, so no pressure other than to save money!

We are already working on the current yearbook, so if you take any photos that you wouldn't mind sharing with us, we would love to have them. Field trips, classroom parties, sports candids, and other events, we always need these!

7:00 p.m. in the EXT. DAY ROOM (C3)

It's time to register your 4th-8th grade girls for volleyball! The program for Grades 4-5 is developmental in nature and focuses on building foundational skills. In Grades 6-8, the play becomes more competitive in nature, allowing students to hone their physical skills and prepare their minds and bodies for high school competition. Rosters need to be set, so it is very important to attend one of the two evenings. If you wish to download and pre-fill the paperwork, you can find forms here, under Athletics. Checks should be made payable to the St. Ann Sports Committee. FMI, call coordinator Robert Dabrowski, 708-418-5061.

Are You Sending in Your Stracks Receipts? Please ask others to save them for you too!

Every Classroom Has a Collection Envelope, and we will be tallying the value of the receipts turned in. The class that brings in the most will win a prize!

Mark Your Calendar for Special Persons' Day


Who is special to your child? A grandparent, aunt, uncle, a neighbor, YOU? Every student is invited to bring a special guest to school! We will attend a special Mass, our Scholastic Book Fair will be in full swing, and the students will have some fun things to show their special people. This will be an early dismissal day. Stay tuned for the day's schedule.


Box Tops is changing to fit today's families. The new and improved Box Tops mobile app uses state-of-the-art technology to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online.

MORE CONVENIENT: Redeem anywhere, anytime within 14 days of purchase

REAL TIME: Our St. Ann earnings are automatically updated online

EASY TO USE: No more clipping or sending Box Tops to school (once all remaining Box Tops printed on packaging have been redeemed, they will no longer be printing them)

EXTRA CASH: Access special bonus offers on top of your Box Tops earnings


Now when our families use the Box Tops app to scan their store receipts, they can "Give Credit" to an individual, classroom, or grade level. To "Give Credit" make sure you have the latest version of the Box Tops app, scan your receipt, then tap the star icon to enter your "Give credit" memo. Box Tops Coordinators can then download the earnings report on the Box Tops website so we will be able to again hold Box Tops classroom contests!

Still have Box Tops clips at home? Send them to school now so Mrs. Farmer can submit them by the fall deadline. All unexpired Box Tops are still valid and will count toward our St. Ann School earnings.

Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store. You can still clip and send them to school. Every valid Box Tops clip is worth 10¢ for St. Ann. Make sure each one has a clearly visible product acronym and expiration date.
