SAS Update

THE WEEK AHEAD

Be Sure to Turn in Your Pot of Gold Tickets ASAP!

Big picture

Only 2 Weeks Until a Night at the Palace!

Tickets are now on sale through the school and parish offices and after weekend Masses. They are $50 each and include dinner, open bar, and a chance at a $1,500 trip to anywhere you want to go! Try to round up all your friends so you can sit together. There will be a prize for the class that has the highest percentage of parent participation (attending, donating, working, they all count).


THE LAST DAY TO PURCHASE DINNER TICKETS IS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24!


Our next planning meeting is WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 7:00 p.m. at J.J. KELLEY'S. Sign up to volunteer and earn those hours for this year: http://signup.com/go/fDHoYou. Right now, very few people other than the teachers have signed up to help. We NEED you!


If you have any donations to turn in, we ask that they be delivered by Friday, February 22 so that they may be made into baskets or auction items, and accounted for in the program.

February Supper Club

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. at HOMEWOOD PORTILLO'S

Forget cooking, let's meet for dinner at Portillo's! Come in any time between 5:00 and 8:00, turn in the voucher that came home in the Thursday envelope, print one here, or simply show it on your phone, and our friends at Portillo's will return 20% of all St. Ann supporters' purchases to us. Please invite your friends!

School Spirit Dress-Down Day & Pep Rally!

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22

Let’s all show our Roughriders pride by dressing in our spiritwear shirts and green and gold next Friday! Members of our basketball and volleyball teams should wear their jerseys so they can be recognized, and we will celebrate them at an end-of-day pep rally.

Practice Preschool Begins in March!

Do you or someone you know have a child who will be three years old by September 1? We would like to invite these little ones to attend weekly "Practice Preschool" sessions at St. Ann during the month of March to get a taste of what it will be like to go to school. Practice Preschool will meet on Thursdays, March 7, 14, 21, and 28, from 9-10:30 in the PreK room. Attendees will have the opportunity to play and learn alongside our current students. Parents will be asked to remain in the building, just across the hall in Extended Day, where they can have a cup of coffee and chat. Register here: http://bit.ly/SASPracticePreschool

Congratulations to Our Latest Box Tops Challenge Winner, Ismael!

2nd Grader Ismael Martinez's name was drawn from all entries, and he received this fun surprise basket on Valentine's Day. Many of the 2nd graders were very curious about what Box Tops are and wanted to know how they could win such a cool prize. Why not let the kids help you clip Box Tops so they understand how they help earn money for SAS? We will reveal details of our next competition very soon. In the meantime, please visit the Box Tops site daily through March 3 to enter the latest sweepstakes and try to win us 5,000 Bonus Box Tops!

DON'T FORGET, YOU HAVE UNTIL THE END OF MARCH TO PUT IN ALL 15 SERVICE HOURS AND EARN BACK YOUR $300 VOLUNTEER DEPOSIT!

Any hours worked after March 31 (like the school picnic and the Good Neighbor Day Parade) will be credited toward your 2019-20 school year volunteer requirement. Some opportunities between now and then:


HSA Meeting Representative

Night at the Palace

Lunch & Recess Monitor

See if there are any classroom events for your particular grade(s)
