SAS Parent Newsletter
December 14, 2020
Good Afternoon Families,
In this newsletter, I will provide families with a few quick updates regarding re-registration and payments, along with plans to celebrate the end of this week and next week with student themed days.
When students return from break on January 11, St. Anthony will begin the re-registration process for the 2021-2022 school year. After consideration of using digital documents for re-registration, St. Anthony will revert back to physical copies being sent home with all students on January 11. Families seeking to enroll a new student will have to go on the school website and request a new student application. An email will then be sent containing all the documents for new students.
Another big change coming for the upcoming school year is the option for families to use Faith Direct to make tuition payments. Faith Direct is an online payment portal that will allow families to make automatic monthly payments or one-time payments either with their bank accounts or credit cards. We hope to pilot this service with a few families before making this service available to all families this year. More information will come as we finalize all of the details.
In other news, the funds from We Give Catholic have been tallied and we raised $11,912.00. The class with the most money raised per student goes to Mrs. Hopkin's class! They will be receiving a pizza party for their success and parents will be notified when that date is chosen.
Lastly, this week we will begin celebrating Christmas with student themed days to lighten the atmosphere before break. Christmas Week will begin on Wednesday, December 16 and conclude on Tuesday, December 22. Below is the schedule for the week.
I hope everyone has a happy and healthy week.
