One More Week for Our Box Tops Challenge!

Please have all Box Tops for the September Challenge turned in to school by Friday, September 28. Your student could win a Dairy Queen gift card if he or she brings in the most for his or her grade! Box Tops that come in after the deadline will be held for the October Challenge. Please trim your Box Tops neatly and attach to the collection sheet (tape or glue, no staples, please), paste on any paper, or even send them in loose in a baggie. Additional collection sheets are available on the website. Be sure to write your child’s name and grade on all submissions. Visit Box Tops for Education for more details and ways to earn Box Tops, including the latest Daily Entry Sweepstakes that could win us 50,000 bonus Box Tops!

Attention All 8th Graders & Families!

Students in 8th Grade and older are invited to join St. Ann's GraFFiti Youth Group. Please come for the group's annual Outdoor Mass on Sunday, September 23 at 4:00 p.m. in the greenspace between the school and Fr. Mark's house. This will count as your Sunday obligation, so you can even sleep in that morning! Bring a chair and a snack or dessert to share--there will be pizza and pop after Mass.

Yard Signs

Thank you to everyone who has been displaying our St. Ann School yard signs! If you would be so kind as to take them in at the end of September and store them someplace safe, we will let you know when they should be displayed again. Marketing research tells us that if we leave them up continuously, the people we are hoping will notice them will stop "seeing" them once they become too familiar. So we will ask that they be brought out again in the spring when they will be fresh and new once again! We're working on something new for the holidays . . .
