Principal's Notes

Dear Parents,

The events planned for tomorrow night and this coming Monday night are two events I hope none of you will miss. Tomorrow night is our Parent Thank You Reception starting at 5:30 in the school library. The teachers and staff from our Preschool through eighth grade have prepared hors d'oeuvres, dessert, wine and soft drinks for you, our parents. This is our way to say Thank You for all your support and help this past year. Child care will be provided in the cafeteria. There is no excuse, stop by on your way home and enjoy some good food, libations, and great friendship with the St. Anne School Family.

Monday night is our final SAPTO meeting of the year. It is at this time that we install our new SAPTO officers for next year and we recognize our graduating parents. This year, we will have a number of our Washington DC student-made models on display in the upper cafeteria as well as a number of our music projects that students created for their music class. Come see the projects, welcome our new officers and bid a fond farewell to our parents whose last child is graduating from our school this year. They will be missed. We know that God will bless each of them as they continue on life's journey with their graduating child.

Virtus Online

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.

Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated!
