Join our First Communicants in daily prayer to Mary during the Month of May on Facebook.

SAS Teachers are the best!

We may not be in the building to see our teachers, but our spirit reaches them in many ways. Our teachers are O-FISH-ally the "sweedish" teachers I know. They plant the seeds of learning and are the cream of the crop! As teacher appreciation week draws to a close, be sure to send a message or video to our teachers and staff to let them know they are the best. It was great to see everyone in their themed spirit days . (Special thank you to Mrs. Piermarini for such a great idea.) Monday will be time for students to start picking up their belongings. See below for more information.

Monday 5/8 Grades K-3 we will have our first personal belongings pick up day.

  • Only 5 (five) people will be able to enter the school at a time
  • Those entering must have their own mask
  • Those entering must have their own gloves

Monday May 18th Grades 4-8 will have a chance to pick up their belongings.

  • Same rules will apply as above

If you are not able to pick up on the designated days, call the office and we will arrange something.

Later in June, we will have a drop off day for tech,texts, and supplies that need to be returned to school.

Have a great weekend! Mrs. Veilleux

Letter from Superintendent David Perda from the Diocese of Worcester

COVID19 has changed our way of least for the time being.

We understand the many hardships that face families today. Some of our families are out of work, some are working in dangerous conditions. Bills need to be paid and employees need to paid.

We are planning for the opening of our doors in the fall for the 2020-2021 school year. We will continue to do our best in offering the tools to make sure our students are prepared for the future.

St. Anna prides itself on how well we were able to adjust to virtual learning. Leaning continues, teachers are engaged with their students and our students continue to learn.

It's important to know that we are working on plans for the new academic year. In order for us to plan and create a budget, it's important for you to know that we rely on real time numbers and those numbers come from those that have registered. We respectfully request that you complete the registration process so that we may plan for the future. If you know of friends or neighbors, please share with them your experience at St. Anna. Word of mouth is the best advertisement.

St. Anna continues to pride itself on it's dedication and commitment to our Faith and to our Academics. Help us to recruit more families and share your love of our school.

Remember our Referral Incentive :

Tuition referral credit of $500/family prior to September 1st.

Referring families must register before September 1st and your tuition will be credited $250 on September 30th and again on June 1st. when they have completed the entire school year.

For those new and wishing to learn more about to St. Anna, please don't hesitate to call the principal or email at and learn about our great school. We are creating a virtual tour that will be available very soon.
