Principal's Notes

Dear Parents,

What a great celebration week this is! After attending our school for ten or so years, our eighth graders are graduating this Friday night in St. Anne Church. I have always said to our students that St. Anne School is merely the name of our school. It is this year's graduating class and prior graduating classes who have helped to define our school. It is the teachers, students and parents who give our school its unique image, definition, and reputation. Over the years, all of us have worked together to help make our school the outstanding Catholic school it is today. Our teachers have partnered with our parents to help guide and direct their children/our students. It is my hope that the students and parents will leave us knowing that God has gifted each one of them with special talents and abilities. It is now their job to further develop those gifts to make their lives better and to better the world in which they live! Graduation is a bittersweet time for everyone. We will all miss the students and their families after having worked together for so many years, but we know that they leave us prepared to meet life's challenges. They have helped define who St. Anne School is in the eyes of all who hear about our wonderful school. Thank you, eighth graders and graduating parents. May God bless each of you in the days and years ahead.

AFTER SCHOOL CLAY ART CLASS

Earthfire Arts Studio on Irving Street is interested in offering an after school clay molding class here at St. Anne School. Before we put anything in place for next year, I wanted to find out how many children would be interested in taking such a class. The studio's owner, Asima, has attached an interest survey for families to fill out and return to our school. Again, please note that you are NOT signing up for this class by filling out the survey, but merely expressing an interest in having your child participate and letting them know what day of the week might be the best day to offer the class. Before anything is finalized, we need to see if there is an interest in offering this program next year. Please see the attached form and if you have any questions, you can call the school office or the studio directly.

Washington, D.C.

As part of their study of Washington, D.C. for their trip this year, the junior high students worked in groups to create models of the various monuments. Some were on display at the Graduate Parents' SAPTO meeting last week, but we wanted to share them here as well. The students have reason to be proud of their work.
