2019 CHRISTMAS SHOW VIDEO

This year we won’t be burning DVD’s of the Christmas program. Instead you’ll be able to watch it streaming on a Private Video on YouTube. In past years, the DVD was $25.00. We are able to keep the cost to a minimum, thanks to a new approach. When you donate $10 via PayPal, Tom DelMundo will email you a link to the Private Video. Thanks to Tom DelMundo of the Yearbook Committee for setting this up.


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Donate on our PayPal page: https://paypal.me/pools/c/8kFmluYw9g

2. Please send funds using your PayPal balance, bank or debit card to avoid PayPal charging fees.

3. Tom DelMundo will email you a link to the Private Video when editing is completed.

Parents who have an In-Coming Kindergartener

This is a reminder for all current parents who have a child entering kindergarten in the fall. Even though you have another child in the school, your entering kindergartener needs to be tested. Please call the office or stop by to schedule a date.

Parent Tour - January 21

Our next parent tour is scheduled for Tuesday, January 21, from 9:00 to 10:30 in the school Library. If you know of a family member or friend interested kindly let them know. Have them call the office to register.

VIRTUS Online Training and Fingerprint Compliance

IMPORTANT REMINDER! Parents must complete the VIRTUS ONLINE training AND be fingerprinted to volunteer for field trips, retreats, overnights, library, health room, reading programs, or any other school/parish activity that involve their presence around students. Please complete the course and fingerprints as soon as possible so that there are no delays with your participation in school functions. Please select "St. Anne Elementary School" as your affiliation to help us verify compliance when you register at https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/.

Parents who have completed the course but have not completed fingerprints have been placed in an "Inactive" module until fingerprints are complete. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Perez at perez@stanne.com. Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated!
