Principal's Notes

Dear Parents,

If you missed attending our Monte Carlo Night this past weekend, you missed out on a fun evening. I want thank the chair of this event, Min Min Sun, and the many others who put together this great evening. The hall was decorated beautifully, the food was plentiful and delicious, the games were filled with laughter and big jackpots, the auction items were desirable items, and the guests were "...simply THE BEST" Thank you one and all for another memorable Monte Carlo Night. Winners and a few more auction items available for purchase can be found in a flyer in this newsletter. Be sure to look for it.

On another note, I am sad to announce that our Kindergarten teacher, Candice Galdo, will be leaving us at the end of this school year. Candice will be getting married this summer and, as her fiance is in the Air Force, they will be relocating to an Air Force Base in Texas. I know that you join me in saying a very sincere, Thank You, to Candice for all the quality teaching and all the spirit that she brought to her classroom and our school community. She will be missed, but I know that we all wish her the very best as she and Alex begin this new chapter in their lives.

I am very happy to announce that we will be hiring Michaela Ruiz as our new Kindergarten teacher next year. Michaela is currently teaching at Star of the Sea and she will be bringing her creative talents and teaching experience with her when she joins our staff in August. We all look forward to welcoming her into our great St. Anne School Family. Welcome Michaela.

Parents! Please remember to select “SCHOOL” when registering with Virtusonline.org to complete the course “Protecting God’s Children”. This will help us verify your compliance when you chaperone or volunteer. If you don’t select the SCHOOL, chances are you registered with another affiliation (i.e. St. Anne Parish) and we will not be able to verify your compliance.
