Message From Mrs. Runnels

October is a busy month, and as a catholic school I would ike us to focus on October as the month of the Holy Rosary. At St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica School we are blessed to be able to pray at our school every day. We begin each day in prayer, end each day in prayer, and pray in many of the classes througout the day. Let us all pray the rosary this month as a school family and with our families at home. If we focus on the words of the prayers we say in the rosary, it will help us to be more compassionate in our daily dealings with others.


  • As of October 1st, changes were made to the Lunch app. Click this link to view the notice. Orders for the week are due by 9:00 p.m. every Sunday to help with ensuring the program runs smoothly. Thanks for your help.


  • As we begin the last week of our first quarter, please make sure to check the Parent Portal (1st-8th) for the most up to date grades. Please don't delay with homework assignements, missing work, projects, etc. Let's remember that more is accomplished for your children when we work together as a team. Thank you for partnering with us for their academic journey.


May you all be filled with God's love, peace, joy, and our Mother Mary's grace during this first week of the Holy Rosary. Let's make sure that we work hard on being Jesus to everyone we meet.


God Bless,


Mrs. Runnels

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner

Two Weeks Left - Calling All Bulldogs Families to Help Us Reach Our Goal

Big picture
This week we made it to 63% of our school community who sold their chicken dinner tickets. We're getting close! We will need the final 54 families who haven't sold their tickets yet to join the rest of us! We only have 2 more weeks to go! Although the chicken dinner event is on October 15th, we are asking for the bulk of the money to be in by October 8th. This will give us time to ensure that we have all needed items for the success of our fundraiser. Let's keep the momentum going so that we can get to the final chicken. We need at least 76% for that one. We have raised $12,000 as of today. Please help us fatten up our chicken and reach our $20,000 goal!


PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES!

Students in Pre-K 3 - 8th grade will have a chance to spin the wheel this week. Students that sold all of their tickets are excited to have the chance to take a spin of the prize wheel and win a squaking chicken.


As previously stated, families that sold all of their tickets will be put in a drawing every Friday for a week of BYPASS CARLINE.


CONGRATULATIONS to the Cavalier Family (Joshua)...our winners for this week! They will receive a prize sign that allows them to bypass carline for this entire week!


Don't forget, for two more weeks a new family will have the chance for this amazing prize. Don't delay, turn your ticket money in today!

Mrs. Colton's Science Class Converts Metric Units

Mrs. Colton's 6th grade students were busy learning to convert metric units this week. In other words, 56 Kilometers = Millimeters. To convert within the measurement system they have "King Henry do the cupid shuffle" by moving the decimal to the right, to the right, to the right....or to the left, to the left, to the left.
Each week student assistants are named in Science class with Mrs. Colton. Joey Rezsutek was one of the 6th grade student assistants for this week! Students are chosen based on their conduct, participation, organizational skills and their compassion towards others. Student Assistants help Mrs. Colton as needed and are given access to the "Cat-Bird's" seat.

Compare/Contrast with Ms. Smith's 3rd Grade class!

Ms. Smith read the novel the Tale of Despereaux, by Kate DiCamillo, to her class. After completing the book, the class watched the movie, then filled out a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting likenesses and differences they found between the book and the movie! Ms. Smith commented on how bright her students are and was amazed at how many details they remembered! Truly great listeners and thinkers!

"Every Piece of the Puzzle is Important"

Big picture
Mrs. Slaton's students learned that every person adds a puzzle piece to St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica School to make us complete. They added their names, pictures or phrases of things they like, things that are of interest or important to them. The idea is what makes them who they are as unique individuals. Then together we all make up the school. Each piece (student) of the puzzle is important!


Below are a few pictures of Mrs. Slaton's 6th grade math class hard at work with rounding and estimating.
