We Are St. Ann School
12/3/15 Parent & Student News: By: Bonnie Hall, Principal
These days learning is in full swing at St. Ann's along with sprinklings of festive fun throughout the building: rehearsing for our Christmas program, Santa's Secret Shop, and decorating our classroom doors for Christmas.
I have it on good authority that St. Nicholas, the patron saint of children, may stop by the school during his busy season to help us in celebrating St. Nicholas Day. Our students and teachers will be invited to leave out one shoe in the hallway; we'll see what happens. He has been known to leave a tasty candy cane in the shoes of children who have been good. (We have plenty of good children in the building!) The candy cane is a symbol of his shepherd's staff.
Here's a link to share with your families about St. Nicholas.
Let Us Pray...
- For the victims and families affected by the tragedy in San Bernardino yesterday
- For Mrs. Sypole's Family (Mrs. Sypole's father-in-law recently passed away)
- For Mrs. Manske and Baby Girl Manske (we're on baby watch!)
Please join us for an all-school Mass on Tuesday at 9 a.m. to celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Please note the School Office will be closed for an hour while we are at Mass.

Emergency School Closing Information will always be first posted on www.emergencyclosingcenter.com. Please bookmark that website. You can also sign up for an email notification through them. This is the service that the Media uses to scroll closings on TV, etc. I'm really hoping for a gentle Winter this year. However, if the weather does turn frightful, Fr. Bill and I will choose safety first for our school families, faculty, and staff.
