We are also looking for nut free baked goods for the dessert table. Please let Mrs. Amanda Ciccolini know if you would like to bake- email her here
Don’t miss out on this wonderful event and let’s hope the Patriots can keep giving it Everything They Got to make it to the Super Bowl. It’s always more fun to cheer on the home team.
Super Bowl Squares for the fundraiser are also available in the office and that night
Don't forget to get your tickets this week!
Catholic Schools Night at the Railers is on Saturday, January 26th at 7pm. Last year we had just under 1,000 people and this year we are looking to grow and make it an even better experience!
The offer this year is $20 a ticket and each ticket for the first 1,000 tickets will come with a Catholic Schools Night/Worcester Railers t-shirt. Any upper level ticket will be $15 a ticket and will also come with a t-shirt. Any ticket after 1,000 will have $5 donated back to the school they purchase from.
The top selling schools will get a player appearance at their school and will also have each student invited down to the high five line before puck drop. Students will have the opportunity to high five every player! Wouldn't it be amazing to have St. Anna's win this opportunity!!!
The official numbers will be calculated on Wednesday of that week, so get orders in early and make sure that you select OUR school and t-shirt size when you purchase your tickets at the time of checkout!!
Bishop McManus and Superintendent Dr. Perda will be dropping the puck!
Come join your St. Anna's family for some hockey fun!
FACTS Grant & Aid Applications now open
The Diocesan 2019-20 Grant and Aid Financial Aid application for students in grades K-8 is now open https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3H1T8
The deadline to apply for Grant & Aid is March 1st.
Your child will need to be re-registered for next year by March 1st in order for you to be eligible for Grant & Aid allocations if you qualify. This includes any students on a wait list.
If you know of any new families interested in St. Anna School and Grant & Aid, please let them know the deadline to file their application and that their child(ren) needs to be registered as a student by March 1st.
Please reach out if you have any questions. I encourage you all to apply even if you're unsure if you will qualify. There are funds available each year and the list that is generated by the applications (even if you do not qualify) is used by the state to allocate our Title Funds which support our school.
It's also a good time to remind you that ALL students should also have an extra pair of gym sneakers AT school. Indoor recess is in the gym and only students with a pair of gym sneakers are allowed to use the gym. No school/outside shoes are allowed on the gym floor.
Once we get snow we'll send home info about snow clothes to play IN the snow too!!!

We expect that students will attend school when they are fighting a cold. We will work with those students on using tissues, hand washing, sneezing or coughing into their elbow (Dabbing!) to help keep the germs at bay.
Our classrooms and hard services are cleaned appropriately to eliminate as many germs as possible while still keeping the good bacteria.
When in doubt, please just ask! We are here to help.
