As everyone is aware of the closure of St. Ann School at the end of this academic year,
we are doing our best to provide you with information regarding some alternatives.
There are some open houses coming up on Sunday:
OLG Highland, IN Open House Exclusively for St. Ann Families at 2:00 p.m.
No Reservation Required
TAKE NOTE: SPECIAL DAYS OF CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK!
Don't Forget to Turn in Your Pot of Gold Stubs!
Families should have received two tickets in the mail over break (if you did not, please reach out to Mrs. Gray). Remember, you already paid for these with your Fundraising Fee, so you can choose to resell them or put your own name on them and turn them in! Our Early Bird drawing for $500 is coming up on Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, and you cannot win if your tickets are not in the drum.
Think you can help us out and sell a few more? Five packs are available at the Parish Office for checkout (no prepayment required), and for every five you sell you have a chance at another $500. Give us a call at 895-6700-- we can even drop them in the mail to you. Who's feeling lucky?

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1
After years of helping school families make a dent in their tuition, our TRIP program will be winding down. We will still place orders every Monday that we have school until late March. The last day for orders will be March 22 so that credits may be applied to outstanding tuition payments.

Nominate Your #SchoolHero Today!
We love our Catholic schools’ employees. Teachers, leaders and support staff have worked tirelessly over the summer and the start of our school year to bring exceptional in-person and remote learning to families during this unprecedented time. To recognize their fantastic work, the Office of Catholic Schools is excited to introduce the #SchoolHero program. We’ll highlight the educators and staff who have gone above and beyond in order to ensure a safe and productive learning environment through social media and the web. All school employees and families can nominate a school hero by completing a brief online form.
