School Board Meeting


Our SAS School Board meets every third Wednesday of the month in the Parish Office. Meetings are open, and all are invited to attend. Get to know our School Board members by reading their bios on the St. Ann School website.

October Supper Club at Buona Schererville


Come on out for lunch or dinner--or both! Be sure to bring your voucher, which will come home in next week's envelope or may be printed from our website. We raised $214.12 at our Five Guys Supper Club in September--let's see if we can top that! Like and share the Buona invitation from our Facebook page.

All little ones not yet in school are invited to come with their parents or caregivers. The group is open to everyone, so bring your friends.

Our Newest Box Tops Challenge!

Thank you to everyone who submitted Box Tops--we should be receiving a credit of around $200. Our goal for the year is $1,000, so we are 1/5 of the way there! Our next challenge begins NOW. This time, we are looking for the class that has the highest percentage of participation. The class with the highest percentage of students handing in Box Tops by Friday, November 16 will win an Ice Cream Social to take place on Tuesday, November 20, right before Thanksgiving Break. Start clipping, and ask your friends and relatives to save Box Tops for you, too! The Halloween-themed collection sheet is available on our website.

Pancake Breakfast Tickets

All families should have received five $5 tickets to the Halloween Pancake Breakfast in the Thursday Envelopes this week. You paid for these upfront with your fundraising fee, and can use them yourself for the breakfast or re-sell them to earn your $25 back. If you need more, they are available in the Parish Office, after Masses October 20-21, and at the door the morning of the breakfast.

Trunk or Treat is Coming!

If you want to participate by decorating your trunk and handing out goodies, please register at the Car Sign-Up link. If you'd rather be a general helper, donate candy, or sign your 8th Grader up to work for Confirmation hours, the Trunk or Treat link is the place for you! Here are the details:
